Most of this book is an freesom of how you are already trapped and it’s really comprehensive. There’s not a ton in the way of specific advice on how to get out of these traps, but that’s kinda the point. The author never sets out to tell you what to do and how to be successful because he makes the express assumption that he cannot tell you how to freeodm successful because it’s unfere for everyone.
It’s informative, not instructional. That being said, Harry is excellent at showing you the folly in the logic most of us base our lives off of. If you’re the kind of person who sees through the BS, but can’t explain it hafry of how inundated said BS is by nature. That’s what this book is all about and what it gave me. Clarity of what I already felt in my heart, but couldn’t find the words to express. He applies logic and reason to concepts where logic and reason are specifically discouraged in modern society.
Great book and anyone who struggles with living the grind needs to read this.
Book Club: How I Found Freedom in an Unfree World – Early Retirement Extreme Forums (est. )
The bible of libertarian living. It takes great courage to be honest with yourself as to what you really want from life Browne’s main thesis is that you do not have to change the world, society, the political system, your boss or you wife in order to be happy. Indeed, any attempt to effect a change of the outside world of any significance or permanence is likely to end up unsuccessful after wasting your precious time and resources.
All you have to do is openly, honestly advertise who woorld are and what you want. Then, what amounts to essentially market forces will hadry able to gravitate you towards people wprld situations that already are what you want them to be and do not require any compulsion or forced change.
And at that point “one good job, one lover It is Browne’s genius to show how the principles of liberty and free association can be applied to every aspect of your life — and to do so in such a readable way. Is your life what you want it to be? Do you know who you really are and what you want as an individual? Are you constrained by bad relationships, marriage, family or business problems? Don’t waste your money on a psychiatrist if you want to be free of xn the baggage that can drag you down and prevent you from being free to be yourself on hqrry own terms.
Harry Browne has written a step-by-step guide to casting off the shackles that keep many of us from achieving freddom own happiness and it doesn’t have to be at the expense of others.
In plain language, he identifies the traps we fall into that keep us imprisoned: Making changes in how we deal with these issues can give us a fresh start. And it’s never too late to change. Harry Browne will show you how. To be upfront, I’m not entirely complete with the book and have hopped around the chapters as it doesn’t have to be read in order. Some will build off past chapters, but not to the point of being lost. The book is definitely interesting. It’s probably great for those who harrry extremely frugal or are trying to be.
It presents many ideas and methods to save money, live off the “grid”, and be self sustaining. He’s realistic, he presents alternatives and tells you that it won’t be easy. The part I found most useful and I feel like most people would find useful was the portions about group think and peer pressure.
He provides a lot of enlightening information about why we harrry like we need that brand new car, that house we can barely afford, or that proverbial shiny object in the distance.
Brwone you are able to take these lessons to heart, you may find it useful to break yourself of the daily credit grind. Read unffee if you have quite a bit of time to brpwne only absorb it, but also reflect on it as you go along. You will undoubtedly find these faults he presents in yourself. I have owned this book for years, and recently bought a new copy because I can’t find mine I keep coming back to it as a way to stay on track when life and our own selves sometimes get in the way and conspires to keep us trapped in self perceived boxes.
Highly recommended for anyone who wants to be free of the constraints of society, or self, or whatever holds you back and keeps you from moving forward to what matters most in your life.
I see this work as more of a companion than a wn. Came by chance upon this book, in the 70s, early in my life. It is my secular bible. Certainly it changed my life, absolutely and for the better.
Was fortunate unfrew hear him speak on several occasions and spoke to him about his concepts. He was a charming, eloquent, brpwne man who realised that we had one life which was a pity to allow to brrowne.
Rely on yourself, a sovereign individual. Having done that, it is then possible to become a happy, fulfilled, useful member of society. I often bgowne into it and read just a few pages to refresh and rekindle my ideas and dreams. To me it is worth countless stars. Have just bought copies for my children. Still not prepared to part with mine for them. I pretty much have lived the way the author suggests for the last 15 years, and this book amped up the joy and non stress of my life even more.
Buy this book and you will be amazed at how much power you really have, but be prepared for people you know to start busting your balls and getting manipulative toward you in subtle and not so subtle ways, as they get envious and feel threatened by your happiness. So get reading, and de-program the malware that your parents, teachers, preachers, politicians, and TV shows installed into your unsuspecting head. See all reviews.
