Book Review:Afraid to Believe in Free Will

I received a free copy of Carl Begley's "Afraid to Believe in Free Will: The human Tendency to Avoid Responsibility from Free Choices."

I have to say I found this book really (really really really) hard to read. I can tell that Dr Begley is a very educated man and had a lot to say. It is also very evident that he is very passionate about his subject and his view point. Unfortunately this book was filled with facts and dissections of other psychology, psychiatrists, theologians works and beliefs that it was very hard to smoothly follow the book and the direction he was trying to lead the reader.

I would not recommend this book to someone. For all the reasons above I was unable to finish this book. I really did try. I even tried skipping over the "hard" chapters and I still couldn't finish it.

I wish the author best of luck with this book but it is not for me.

Note: I was given a free copy of this book for review from The opinions above are my own and I was not compensated for good reviews.
