"Kane's Free Will is an outstanding collection. Maintaining accessibility without loss of sophistication or depth, this compilation – better than any other – gives us a clear sense of where we are and how we arrived at this point. Add Kane's articulate introduction and useful glossary and we have the best anthology on free will in the last 25 years."
