'It's been the question that has inspired, stultified and petrified
humanity across the millennia. What is our fate? From the goddess
Nemesis to the theory of free will we've struggled. Until now.
Acute, mind-opening, highly accessible - this book doesn't
just explain how our lives might pan out, it helps us live better.'
-- Bettany Hughes
'A humane and highly readable account of the neuroscience that underpins our ideas of free will and fate' -- Professor David Runciman
