This book is not about an idea, a theory, an argument or even ‘a philosophy’. It explains, in simple terms, why irrefutable logic will always reach the conclusion that human beings are not in charge of their own lives. Although some readers will realise that this must be so, many of those same people will find it almost impossible to come to terms with that truth. The book goes on to suggest the reasons for this. It also points out that those of us able to accept that we have no free will, will discover liberation from anger, envy, fear and guilt – and so be able to live less stressful lives.
