Liberty and character play vital roles in the functioning of free societies, but are often overlooked. Alex Adams gives them the attention they deserve in his memoir, “Freedom Is Not Free” (published by AuthorHouse), which highlights his adventures and missteps in seeking to improve the lot of mankind.

“I wanted to tell my life story, including essays about my adventures which I felt could be instructive to a wide audience,” the first-time author shares. “I hope to inspire readers to appreciate freedom, rule of law, and justice based on what I have to say on these topics.”

“Freedom Is Not Free” chronicles one man’s life journey from birth through the Trump era. Here, Adams recounts his moral and intellectual evolution in a free society through discussions of his reading, education, career, volunteer work, and travels. He highlights the good, the bad and the ugly aspects of human condition to come to conclusions about how the society arrived at its current state, where it may be headed, and how freedom and rule of law are necessary in attaining growth. He also shares the trials he faced and the lessons he learned as he attempts to make a success of myself in the modern American society.

“Freedom Is Not Free” will appeal to those who like to gain a new perspective concerning the concept of freedom, justice, and society. “I hope that readers see themselves in the situations I describe, and possibly learn from my experiences,” Adams states.
