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.

"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."

  • Indispensable para abrir la mente

    No tienes que estar de acuerdo con cada idea, pero muchas aunque no quieras te harán sentido. Una ayuda para librarte del poder de las creencias, del poder de los pensamientos intrusivos, librarte de tu propio yo sombra; este libro te recuerda que se puede vivir en armonía con ellos en el camino que tomemos hacia una vida de paz.
  • Um, no thanks.

    I didn’t get far into this book until I stopped. Mostly because I’m a Christian and the author clearly doesn’t believe in God. I do not recommend this book.
  • Not for everyone

    It’s hard to get through as it just seems most of what is being said in this book is speculation and not fact based

  • Great reading!

    By askadeline
    I actually quite enjoyed this book. It provides lots of valuable insight into the inner workings of society and human behavior. The author has a lot of amazing points that make you go, “huh” and it’s a fun read because of it. There’s also surprisingly a lot of laughs I got from the author, they have an interesting sense of humor.
  • Actually quite good

    Despite the silly author name, this is actually a remarkably thoughtful and insightful book on the nature of human psychology, and the means of which to obtain freedom of the mind. Good short read, I highly recommend it.
