Overview

I write best-selling, non-fiction books, biographies and self-help books. My non-fiction books are about History, Culture, Religion and Ideas and are published by Bloomsbury in London and New York. I am currently writing a biography for a major publisher of a leading 20th century religious thinker. My self help books are about careers, I have spent over twenty years helping people to improve their careers and get better jobs. I have ghost written three books, all biographies.

The secret of good book writing is to tell an interesting story, no matter what the subject matter. My style is to research and gather information from as many sources as possible, both written and word of mouth, and turn it into easy to read factual accounts that will hold your attention like a well written story. Take a look at some of the things reviewers say about my work:

* Freedman's style of presentations is never tedious:
Times Literary Supplement

* Freedman writes with evocative brio:
Wall Street Journal


* Masterful and engaging :
Publishers Weekly

* Scholarly and entertaining:
Spectator


* A complex and important story told in clear, non-academic language:
Historical Novels Review
.

I am professional and focused in my work. I will only take on a project if I believe I can add value and create something exciting and interesting. I will be happy to discuss your project with you, to hear how you envisage your book and to work out with you the best possible way of making your ideas real.

The Talmud – A Biography: Banned, censored and burned. The book they couldn't suppress

Harry Freedman

The Talmud's 37 volumes, the foundation of the Jewish legal system, record esoteric discussions among ancient Jewish scholars and sages on subjects as varied as faith, sex, prayer and humour. This 'biography' focuses on the later influence of the Talmud when it came into contact - and conflict - with other cultures, from early intellectual cross-fertilization between Judaism and Islam, and med... read more

The gospels contain coded, midrashic, messages that would have resonated with their contemporary Jewish audience. Approaching the "New Testament" from a midrashic perspective leads to a radically ... read more
