And yet we all experience ourselves as having the freedom to choose between alternatives presented to us -- 'we' are in the driving seat.

I have been really disappointed in this book. The first few chapters were interesting but then it seemed to be redundant. I got bored with it rather quickly. I think I will devote my times to books that further retain my attention.
