The bestselling Slovenian book is now available worldwide! Human: Instructions for Use has received steady readership for over a decade. We are thrilled to offer this beloved classic for health and wellbeing to readers around the world, now in the first ever English edition.
Human: Instructions for Use is on thousands of night-shelves in Slovenia, many a reader’s favorite manual for life, a wellness book in working clothes, or—whenever possible—naked. However, to call Human a wellness manual would be misleading. It is not so much about adding anything to your life. Human is about removing oppression.
The book makes a powerful case for liberating humanness from culture. A walk through your home once you’ve read Human won’t be the same any more. You’ll suddenly see cultural oppression on every step: in your bathroom, bedroom, kitchen…
Human doesn’t stop at pointing out culture’s defects; the book offers a selection of natural alternatives to the ways of modern civilization. Alternatives so simple and logical, you will wonder, how is it possible you’ve never heard about them before!
“This book turns your life upside down and gets your feet on the ground, as nature intended in the first place.”

I love this book because it reminds me of how to live in my body. It helps me feel more connected to my natural animal self… the way us humans were designed to live. I try to practice the exercises in the book everyday. They definitely support my overall health, agility, and mental fitness. Go Human!

I will never forget how you changed my life with the first edition of your book Human. I was in late pregnancy and my little Lan was practically sitting on my gut. With your tips, however, pooping has become a whole new experience.
P.S.: Apparently, Lan got your tips already in my belly since he’s always been pooping the right way. 🙂
Nara has a specific talent to write simple but yet give such important messages to the World. With examples and short quotes, he teaches how to get back satisfaction in life by using some forgotten instinct “animal” habits. For me, it was an incredible discovery. Now when people ask me why I’m barefoot my answer is: “Because Nara says so!”
I will always come back to this book for wisdom and recommend it to the people.

I was intrigued by the book because I studied biology and often wondered about the role of biology in our lives – which we usually take for granted or even neglect. I was riveted to discover how Nara’s writing resonated with some physiological phenomena I felt instinctively actually had an explanation – and confirmed what I was suspecting. I now follow more of his advice in my private life, and I wish society was more tolerant to also live this way in public. Some day I hope 🙂 Definitely an interesting and even amusing reading! I hope there will be a sequel with more learnings!
