Publisher's Summary

The wisdom within these pages has the power to unlock our potential as a species and establish an enduring civilization based on peace, self-ownership, and nonviolence.

You, as a free, beautiful, independent human being with inalienable rights, own yourself! You can do what you want with your own body and the product of your labor. All human interactions should be free of force and coercion, and we are free to exercise our rights, limited only by respect for the rights of others. Governments rely on force, and force is a poor substitute for persuasion. When you learned "don't hit," "don't steal," and "don't kill," it wasn't, "unless you work for the government." Governments frighten us into thinking we need them, but we are moving past the statist paradigm and rendering them obsolete.

This book will empower you to be more happy, free, and prosperous, while putting you in a position to help shape our destiny.

No wonder this book is banned in prisons

The prose is Clear and to the point.
Something you will go back to again and again
Recommend getting kindle version with audible add on
Adam lives his ideas by not using force to enforce copyright protection.

Only comment for improvement would be to slow down the speed of the reading. There are so many great points expressed in few words the reader needs more time to let them sink in. Having the synced kindle version is very helpful

A book I am happy to have purchased in multiple formats even though the author did not use a violent government tool to ensure payment.

Thank you Adam
You have made a contribution to evolution of our civilization

Major eye opener. Will listen again and again.

Thoroughly enjoyed this informational piece. Adam Kokesh did a fantastic job opening my eyes to the painful truth. Spread the word. Be free!

Excellent book, OK narration

I LOVE what Adam has written. I agree with 100% of his book, and I plan to purchase copies to give away. However, Adam needs more dramatic pauses to give the proper effect to his enlightening words. I hope he decides to re-narrate his book sometime soon or ask someone with a more captivating voice/style to narrate it for him (e.g., Stefan Molyneux?). Overall, I still thoroughly enjoyed the content. He'd make Murray Rothbard proud.

Excellent all three times I read it!

If you could sum up Freedom! in three words, what would they be?

Wake up people!

What other book might you compare Freedom! to and why?

I don't like to lump Freedom in with novels, but I would put Freedom up there with Atlas Shrugged and 1984 because they all call on us to see the preciousness of freedom and to look at how government will try to take over and control the lives of those it is supposed to serve.

What does Adam Kokesh bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Adam wrote his book, not as an "arm chair quarterback" but, as a man who has faithfully fought to defend the rights of his country and as a man who was locked up by the government for exercising those rights he fought to defend. Adam is the real deal.

If you could give Freedom! a new subtitle, what would it be?

Freedom, Food for Thought To Wake Up the American People.

Any additional comments?

Even though the book can be obtained for free, I have bought over 100 copies to give away to people I know. I think it should be required reading for students and for everyone. I hope to shake Adam's hand some day.

Good critique of centralized state

The book provides a great critique of centralized government and how the government can control it's citizen and create diversions while profiting and becoming rich. Although, this book doesn't really discuss how to fix all the problems it describes other than specifying the need for more local government.

feedom..freedom...FREEDOM!!

I love the way you walked through all the levels of releasing government control! The majority of people get scared at the thought of self accountability and governance.. as if they don't trust themselves to be free of control.. or even just believe in the complex mental health issue that humans only act right under the governance of Authoritarians.
great book!!

Truth

Profound and inspirational. Thank you, Adam, for sharing such an articulate explanation of the truth we all know, but don't always practice as we should.

some good points and ideas

while Kokesh makes some excellent points, he also makes some logical errors, in my opinion. hes a brilliant guy, and has obviously read some of the greatest authors on freedom and liberty, but many of these ideas rely much too heavily on the supposed good nature of mankind. much like the United States Constitution, of which Jefferson said "for an and immoral and non- religious society, this constitution is wholly inadequate", so is the non-aggression princile wholly inadequate for maintaining glibal peace and stability. while a wonderful theory, I believe that total freedom would result in total rule by tyrants. just look at Mexico and Afghanistan for excellent examples of this. one man's opinion
