It takes great courage to be honest with yourself as to what you really want from life ... and perhaps greater still to understand that your rights to seek it take precedence before your obligations to others. 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 you are and what you want. Then, what amounts to essentially market forces will be able to gravitate you towards people and 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 ... or maybe two or three"), what would you care that the rest of the world is stuck in their unfree ways?
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. Definitely recommended.
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.
The book is definitely interesting. It's probably great for those who are 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 feel like we need that brand new car, that house we can barely afford, or that proverbial shiny object in the distance. If you are able to take these lessons to heart, you may find it useful to break yourself of the daily credit grind.
Read this if you have quite a bit of time to not only absorb it, but also reflect on it as you go along. You will undoubtedly find these faults he presents in yourself.
This book sets forth a workable, pragmatic philosophy that helps you to live in the real world. Harry Browne gets down into even some nitty-gritty, real-world issues that you don't always hear about in most books.
I'm so glad this book is available on Kindle. I have it on my iPad to read from time to time as I travel. I've read the book numerous times and plan to read it many more times. This is one that will change your life for the better. I highly recommend it. I sure helped change my life for the better.
