    we are all biological computers.

    I hadn’t made up my mind immediately following this book, but its stuck with me, even after reading 3 more books since. Sam Harris destroyed my concept of free will and has caused me to re-think the human animal. It may have been my will to write this review, but it certainty wasn’t free choice that led me too it. My will is hidden in the depths of my brain, I now envision a Binary Brain and an operation system known as 'consciousness' .

    Unsettling

    I've heard a lot of Sam Harris' talks. This is however the first of his books I've read. I was surprised how accessible a book on neuroscience turned out to be. Ever since I read Scott Baker's novel Neuropath the idea that our consciousness is less a process of making choices and more of a process of OBSERVING choices already made for us is both fascinating and unsettling if not outright terrifying. Freewill did a great job of explaining the ramifications of such an idea even if it was a bit short on the actual science; which I freely admit most people would probably find quite dry.

    Cole's notes

    This is my first read of any Sam Harris book. While there are some interesting concepts in his book, he seems to touch on them too fleetingly or in a haphazard manner. Unlike Dawkins, I am more drawn to his references than his original content.

    Good read!

    A great introductory book to some of the philosophical issues regarding free will. Easy to understand for individuals who are interested in philosophy but have not studied it in depth.

    Its ok

    Interesting read but could be so much more to say on the matter. Too short for my liking.
