    A belief in free will touches nearly everything that human beings value. It is difficult to think about law, politics, religion, public policy, intimate relationships, morality—as well as feelings of remorse or personal achievement—without first imagining that every person is the true source of his or her thoughts and actions. And yet the facts tell us that free will is an illusion.

    Story

    I have not written a review here before but I am so excited about this book I feel compelled (lol) to do so. I first purchased the Kindle edition of this book and enjoyed it so much that I figured it would be worth one of my credits to have Sam read it to me. I wasn't disappointed. The book is highly engaging, and Harris's arguments are elegant and compelling. The book says everything it needs to say with conciseness and clarity. I was sorry to reach the end and will be listening to this one multiple times.
