Americans are fixated on the idea of choice. Our political theory is based on the consent of the governed. Our legal system is built upon the argument that people freely make choices and bear responsibility for them. And what slogan could better express the heart of our consumer culture than "Have it your way"?

In this provocative book, Kent Greenfield poses unsettling questions about the choices we make. What if they are more constrained and limited than we like to think? If we have less free will than we realize, what are the implications for us as individuals and for our society? To uncover the answers, Greenfield taps into scholarship on topics ranging from brain science to economics, political theory to sociology. His discoveries—told through an entertaining array of news events, personal anecdotes, crime stories, and legal decisions—confirm that many factors, conscious and unconscious, limit our free will. Worse, by failing to perceive them we leave ourselves open to manipulation. But Greenfield offers useful suggestions to help us become better decision makers as individuals, and to ensure that in our laws and public policy we acknowledge the complexity of choice.

It’s your choice

Kent Greenfield is a great author and through this book he questions one of the most important values for human beings – the freedom of choice. He shows in this volume that we are not as free as we think we are, and the implications freedom will have on us. I loved the book, as it is intriguing, thought provocative and written in an interesting manner. There are scientific resources that support his arguments and the book will help you understand better the view of society on certain predesigned values. It gives insights on developing your decision making skills.
