Publisher's Summary

In 2007, Harry Browne's widow discovered a box in their storage building containing eight large reel-to-reel tapes labeled, "The Art of Profitable Living, Harry Browne, 1967, Long Beach and Hollywood, California."

After listening to the master tapes, she was convinced that others would find the thought-provoking course as beneficial to them as it was to her. So the tapes were transferred to CDs and then transcribed as this book, retitled, Rule Your World! Finding Freedom and Living Profitably.

The book, based on the eight lecture series, examines individual happiness, morality, decision-making, developing a code of conduct, freedom, and many other important topics.

The course's concepts, on which Harry's principles were based, were developed by him beginning around 1953 when he was only 20 years old. A dozen years later, when he presented the course, he was already a top-notch speaker who spoke without notes, moved along at a rapid pace, and fielded questions brilliantly in the question and answer periods that followed the lectures. More importantly, each lecture was full of thought-provoking ideas with applications that had never before been made in public.

In Harry's own words.: "I put your principles on the block to see if they hold up on the foundation on which they're based." "I pin your beliefs against the wall, invade your mind, and disturb your views." "I examine principles, make applications, and then see how they work in areas of decision making, religion, love, marriage, sex, working for freedom, parent/child relationships, unraveling complicated decisions, etc."

Although 40 years have passed since Harry presented his course, his philosophy of life, ideas, and principles are as relevant today as they were in 1967.

And even if you've listened to How I Found Freedom in an Unfree World (Harry's 1973 self-help book that explains how individuals can take responsibility for their own lives) your life will be forever enriched if you listen to this book.

Rule Your World! will provide you with the tools you need to live your life the way you see fit. It will put you on the path to a freer, happier life, and it will inspire you to take greater responsibility for your life — to quit focusing on the shortcomings of others and use the sovereignty you have to take control of your own life and make the most of it. Rule Your World! can make your life much freer and happier.

In Harry's first lecture, he asks, "Could anything be more important than getting a clean start now?" Then later he exclaims, "What treasures could possibly be greater than the freedom to act on your own life. You can be you - because there is no one who has a claim on you any more!"

Lifechanging!

I was going to write a detailed review here. Then I realized it was a non-direct alternative and it would contribute marginally to my overall happiness. So, I am going to do something to directly maximize my happiness instead.

All time great

I just finished listening to this audio book by the late great Harry Browne.

It’s quite possibly the best guide to living a successful life, dealing with the world in a rational way, and ultimately gaining the end all of us seek, happiness.

I cannot recommend this enough. It will add more value to your thinking and aid you in effective living than anything else I’ve ever listened too.

If I were to die tomorrow, and could only leave my children one thing that would help them, this audio book would likely be it.

It’s pure gold.
