In his time Paul Begadon has been a soldier, mechanic, engineer, writer, and philosopher. Born in Ireland in the city of Waterford, he has wandered that island for years, though he now lives in Dublin. His first book, “Unchaining the Titan: Collected Essays”, was published in September 2016.
The human mind is a web of stories. Throughout the long history of the human race we have used storytelling as the primary means by which we pass on important information through the use of symbolism, metaphor, and imagery. But the stories and myths of the past can often be difficult for the modern mind to penetrate. In this collection of essays, Paul Begadon unravels the many layers of ancient myths, historical events, and even some modern film and literature, in order to put the wisdom contained within them to practical use. This unheard-of and refreshing perspective on a variety of psychological and mythological topics promises to empower its readers with useful insight and modern applications of some very old knowledge. “Unchaining the Titan: Collected Essays” is available in hard-copy and electronic format through a number of channels including Amazon, Kindle, Smashwords, Createspace, iBooks, and others.
