How can we free ourselves from mental suffering? How can we unlock what the poet William Blake referred to as “the mind-forged manacles” - those unhelpful, unfounded and inflexible habits of thought which keep us from reaching our true creative potential?

This book provides practical advice on how to achieve this.

But it also offers an imaginative holistic theoretical framework for an understanding of the nature of the universe, the psychological history of the human race and the meaning of life.

What Readers Have Said About "How to Be Free" :

"I just wanted to thank you for publishing 'How to Be Free'. It helped me through many hard times that have recently occurred. My self-esteem has been raised because of you."

"This is a book that is full of insight and as a psychology major, I would highly recommend this book for all open minds."

"Opened my eyes and changed my life."

" f*****g changed my life."

"This book is dark, deep and brilliantly written. I'm very moved by the author's candidness about mental illnesses, a subject that has become extinct in our conversations and dealings. Here is a person who reached deep inside himself and spilled his soul out onto each page... and he did it so eloquently. I applaud him for bringing me to tears."

"Really loved the book. It made me think, self reflect and take a deeper look at my own self."

"I found your book particularly helpful at a low point in my life... You have given me new hope..."

"Your book has made me a happier person already!"

" awesome book..."


  • Mind blowing!

    This book is very very deep and brief. Brace if you choose to read it but it definitely takes you to freedom if you dare! Or at least makes sense if you are already in that state of mind. Might be difficult to understand, if that’s the case then try again after a decade of life... lol. Weldone author!

    The guy is not close to a mental health professional. You are not implementing the proper context in writing to be sensitive or respectful to other cultures or beliefs. I don't know what "God" you were referring to, but my GOD does exist.

  • Great Book

    By vargas5250
    A book that puts things in a different light and causes you to reflect on normalities that are so often over looked for the face that we are all at times caught up in our own shell instead of living and embracing things.
  • Only God can heal us!

    People can’t thrive and grow w/o the love of God. Plants need water or they wither up and die. We will continue to suffer from depression and sadness w/o God. Sadly Joe (author) is atheist and is lost, he doesn’t have any of the answers to a happy and fulfilling life.
  • Good
