Highly repetitive and surprisingly unhelpful 'introduction' to the problematic concept of free will.,
This review is from: Free Will: A Very Short Introduction (Very Short Introductions) (Kindle Edition)
Earlier reviewers here have made all the substantial points. This book doesn't really function as an introductory text. It is dryly written and extremely repetitive, which makes it unnecessarily difficult to read, given the relatively straightforward nature of the arguments advanced. If anything, the author's style, if taken by the reader to be typical of philosophical prose, is likely to put the reader off investigating these matters further.
The 'Short Introduction' books are generally excellent, but this is one to avoid.
