Reviews

Excellent . . . Outstanding for its breadth of research, the liveliness of the writing, and the depth of humanity it conveys
*Wall Street Journal*

Wonderfully readable ... humorous and warm and humane
*Today (BBC Radio 4)*

Robert Sapolsky explains why the latest developments in neuroscience and psychology explode our conventional idea of Free Will. The book's chock-full of complex and often counter-intuitive ideas. It's also a joy to read. That's because Sapolsky is not only one of the world's most brilliant scientists, but also an immensely gifted writer who tells this important story with wit and compassion. It's impossible to recommend this book too highly. Reading it could change your life
*Laurence Rees*

In his usual frank and amusing style, Robert Sapolsky argues that free will is an illusion. His stance is both hard to accept and hard to deny. An utterly fascinating topic with mind-boggling implications for human morality
*Frans de Waal, author of Different: Gender Through the Eyes of a Primatologist*

Fascinating, provocative and profound. This book tackles all sorts of big issues: how the human brain works, what makes us different, and what underlies everything we do. If Sapolsky is right, we might need to rethink justice and law, and for each of us personally, what it really takes to be happy and successful
*Daniel M. Davis, author of The Secret Body*
