Michael Gazzaniga tackles the complex subject of the degree of determinism versus free will that governs our actions, spanning various areas of study, including neuroscience, psychology, ethics, and the law. The author provides many case studies for illustration, highlighting cutting-edge research on the conscious mind and the "interpreter module," which is the part of the brain that makes sense of actions after the fact. Narrator Pete Larkin does what he can to help guide the listener through this dense material, varying his tone appropriately to make the work more easily digestible; nonetheless, the complexity of the material and the amount of detail make it hard to follow.
