Overview

Freedom is living your life as you want to live it.

You can have that freedom now, without waiting to change the world or the people around you.

You've been taught from childhood that you must make compromises, that you must accept the bad with the good, that in marriage you must be prepared to give 60% and get 40%.

You've been told that you shouldn't be selfish, that you should live by a moral code someone else thinks is best, that you should put others first, that you can't live as you want because other people won't allow it. You've heard hundreds of clichés reminding you that life is meant to be gray and burdensome.

This book explodes those notions-showing how life can be enjoyed. You can make a living doing something you like. Your love affair can be an excitement, not a burden. Your friendships can bring joy, not obligations.

Life isn't a dog-eat-dog experience. You can have what you want without hurting others. You can live as you think best without having to convince others that it's okay to do so. You can live the kind of life that you want to live- one that's custom-made for you by you, not one produced on an assembly line.

This book contains no mystical secrets or pep talks. With simple, common sense, Harry Browne explains how you can decide what life is best for you, how you can begin living that life now, and how you can escape all the traps and boxes-the fictitious obligations and imaginary liabilities-that have been holding you back.

He shows how to minimize the government's intrusions in your life, how to reduce the demands others make on your time and resources and how to deal with people who call you "selfish" whenyou don't give them what they selfishly want.

Most of all, he shows that you don't have to convince others to let you be free.

The decisions are entirely yours. He explains how to make plans and set goals that rely only on your actions-that don't depend on others for their success.

Yes, you can be free. And you can start right now.
