Overview

In 1973 Harry Browne sent a simple message -- that you can live the life you want to live. Forty years after the publication of How I Found Freedom in an Unfree World, it is now being reissued in digital format -- to reach the millions of people around the world that are still seeking a point of view that is as refreshing, and liberating as it was when it first appeared on the scene.

From the book:

Freedom is the opportunity to live your life as you want to live it. And that is possible, even if others remain as they are.

If you’re not free now, it might be because you’ve been preoccupied with the people or institutions that you feel have restrained your freedom. I don’t expect you to stop worrying about them merely because I suggest that you do.

I do hope to show you, though, that those people and institutions are relatively powerless to stop you — once you decide how you will achieve your freedom. There are things you can do to be free, and if you turn your attention to those things, no one will stand in your way. But when you become preoccupied with those who are blocking you, you overlook the many alternatives you could use to bypass them.

The freedom you seek is already available to you, but it has gone unnoticed. There probably are two basic reasons you haven’t taken advantage of that freedom.

One reason is that you’re unaware of the many alternatives available to you.

Editorial Reviews

Internet - Michael Cloud
"Harry Browne invited me to confront how I really lived my life -- and the beliefs that prompted my choices and actions. How I found Freedom in an Unfree World doesn't just give you new freedom ideas -- it gets new freedom ideas out of you."

Meet the Author

Harry Browne was an American free-market Libertarian writer who in 1996 and 2000 ran for President of the United States as the nominee of the Libertarian Party. He was a well-known investment advisor for over thirty years, originator of the Permanent Portfolio concept, a consultant to the Permanent Portfolio Family of Funds, and author of "Harry Browne's Special Report" -- a financial newsletter published from 1974-1997.
He was the author of 19 books and thousands of articles, Co-founder and Director of Public Policy of the libertarian Downsize DC Foundation, host of two weekly network radio shows -- one a political and the other a financial show, host of an eTV (internet-based television) show called "This Week in Liberty with Harry Browne" on the Internet based Free Market News Network, and a popular inspirational public speaker.
He was a little known investment advisor when his first book, How You Can Profit from the Coming Devaluation, was published in 1970. Recognizing the disastrous monetary policy of the U.S. government, he warned that the dollar would be devalued, inflation could be severe, and gold, silver, and foreign currencies should skyrocket in value. The book's theme clashed with the prevailing wisdom, but it struck a chord with tens of thousands of Americans, and the book made the New York Times bestseller list.
In 1973 he published How I Found Freedom in an Unfree World, a self-help book that shows individuals how to take responsibility for their own lives. Many people consider the book to be a modern classic, and it remains in demand three decades after its first publication.
