The science of Fate: why your future is more predictable than you think description
Are we really the masters of our destiny? Or is our future hardwired in our brain? In her engrossing and illuminating book, Cambridge neuroscientist Hannah Critchlow argues that our behaviours have been shaped and honed by biochemistry, neurobiology and psychology, by natural selection and evolution, and that we have much less free will than we think. Drawing vividly from every day examples, The Science of Fate is a fascinating voyage into the depths of the human brain.
