The Nature of Things by Lucretius Has life just got you down these days? Are you searching for a deeper meaning in your own life? If you are like the many others out there, religious or not, who have tried to find an understanding to the ways of the world and to the nature of the mind and soul, you needn’t look any further than the fREADom publishing co.’s best-selling classic self-help book, The Nature of Things by Lucretius. Throughout this book, Lucretius reaches deep into the science and the physics of what it means to be alive and be human. He cuts through the frills and eccentricities of modern organized religion and lays down the foundation for a deductive and essentially endogenous philosophy. Everything you need and desire is within you and within your power, all you have to do is harness it! With the necessary means and guidance provided in this book, you will become a renewed and enlightened being. The powerful words of Lucretius and his Epicurean-derived ideas will bring you back to a state of humility and sincerity within yourself, and you will thus prosper with sentience and awareness. "It's hard these days to know what to believe. With all of the religious intolerance evident in the world today, basic human values and morals get muddled between each group and ultimately lost in the process. But Lucretius brings the reader back to basics and back to what it truly means to be alive and to be human." -Oprah Winfrey, TV personality and American media proprietor

A Vindication of the Rights of Woman by Mary Wollstonecraft Raising a teenager is tough enough, but raising a teenage daughter can be especially trying for mothers. You want your daughter to be independent, with her own set of values and beliefs that she can be proud of, but you also want her to be educated, both in the formal and informal sense, and avoid the appearance of ignorance. Mary Wollstonecraft has written the ultimate guide to managing and strengthening the ever-changing relationship between a mother and her growing daughter. A Vindication of the Rights of Woman sets out to help mothers instill in their girls a sense of pride in being female and life lessons that will stick with them throughout their entire lives. Wollstonecraft imparts her own experience upon the reader and what she has learned in growing up as a modern woman, in the hopes that her words will speak to the hearts of those struggling mothers out there. She provides the reader with the emotional guidance that both mothers and daughters need and does so in a way that is relatable to women in all walks of life. Wollstonecraft will save you and your daughter’s relationship! "Raising a daughter is hard, and when Lourdes was coming of age, it was hard to know what valuable lessons I should be teaching her in such a chaotic and backwards world. But Wollstonecraft made it easy with her Vindication, and helped Lourdes and I understand each other and grow together." -Madonna, American singer and songwriter

The Empathy Exams by Leslie Jamison How can one feel another person’s pain, when the idea of pain itself is so subjective that it can be assumed, distorted, or even performed? How can you, in your own life, simply feel more for someone or something? As Leslie Jamison lays out in her book, The Empathy Exams, feeling more is process of understanding yourself, your own emotions, and the emotions elicited by the suffering or joyousness or others. She provides the reader with key concepts that delve into the meaning of feeling and the reactions it produces within ourselves. In order to feel more and to be more empathetic towards one another, we must first understand the nature of emotion itself, as Jamison explains. She makes it easy to get in touch with the sensitive side of oneself. Within no time at all, you will feel like you have a better cognizance of the emotions that others are experiencing, and you will have learned the proper responses to the multitude of varying emotions. "As a (pseudo) psychologist, it's my job to feel sympathy and to exhibit empathy when my patients tell me about the tragedies going on in their lives. And Leslie Jaimson's book, The Empathy Exams, helped me in innumerable ways to feel more connected to my patients and to better understand their issues and work through them." -Dr. Phil McGraw, TV personality and psychologist
