Seven Simple Steps to Personal Freedom

Gerry Spence
$12.95

Beloved author of, among many other books, the bestsellers How to Argue and Win Every Time and The Making of a Country Lawyer, Gerry Spence distills a lifetime of wisdom and observation about how we live, and how we ought to live in Seven Simple Steps to Personal Freedom. Here, in seven chapters, he delivers messages that inspire us first to recognize our servitude — to money, possessions, corporations, the status quo, and our own fears — and then shows us how to begin the self-defining process toward liberation.

Seven Simple Steps to Personal Freedom is a powerfully affirming, large-hearted, and life-changing book that asks us all to take the greatest risk for the greatest reward—our own freedom.
