Free Will

Free Will - Sam Harris This book made me angry, but fortunately it was very short, more a monograph than a book. I think I was angry because I disagree so strongly with his thesis, but I'm not knowledgeable enough to really dispute it. One thing I did identify, it appears to me that, since he cannot define or explain the self or consciousness, he denies their existence or importance.

Harris' writing style -- pedantic and rather disjointed -- also annoys me.
