Drawing on the French existentialists, British punks, the US beats, hippies and yippies, medieval thinkers, anarchists and 1970s back-to-the-landers such as Ivan Illich, Idler editor Tom Hodgkinson provides a new, simple, joyful blueprint for modern living. He shows that consumer society has led not to a widening of freedoms but to the opposite, and that the key to a free life is to stop consuming and start producing. We are not consumers, we are creators!

Following up his cult bestseller How To Be IdIe,Tom Hodgkinson takes us on an inspirational journey towards true freedom and happiness. Read How To Be Free and learn how to throw off the shackles of anxiety, bureaucracy, debt, governments; housework, moaning, pain, poverty, ugliness, war and waste, and much else besides.
