This book looks interesting. I might have to check into it.
One word: neuroplasticity
Yes, we do have free will, but it can be fooled with. The good news is also the bad news: we are highly programmable. That's bad news because we can be programmed rottenly, but it's also good news because we can be re-programmed. We can choose to re-program ourselves, and that is the ultimate in 'free will.'
