Throughout our lives, we are influenced by others in many ways. Sometimes these influences are helpful and sometimes they are a restriction to our personal freedom. There is also a person who is closer to us than any other, but can also sabotage our personal freedom very successfully. We can sometimes be our own personal enemy without realising this fact. This book describes various ways in which our freedom is restricted by ourselves and others. There are also suggestions that could help us to understand and overcome the real and imagined threats to our personal freedom.
