    The father of cognitive neuroscience and author of Human offers a provocative argument against the common belief that our lives are wholly determined by physical processes and we are therefore not responsible for our actions.

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    This book was very academic. Down to the siting of references every few minutes. I have a masters degree but found a lot of the content to be over my head.

    Story

    In 480 B.C., a huge Persian army, led by the inimitable King Xerxes, entered the mountain pass of Thermopylae to march on Greece, intending to conquer the land with little difficulty. But the Greeks, led by King Leonidas and a small army of Spartans, took the battle to the Persians at Thermopylae and halted their advance: almost. It is one of history's most acclaimed battles, one of civilization's greatest last stands.

    Euryleia says: "Requires full attention"
    "poorly named"
    Overall

    I tried being patient with the book because I am really interested in the story of Thermopylae. But, after painfully listening to this pompous author drone on and on about everything but, I surrendered and quit listening at about the mid point.
