Description


Why did I do that ? What was I thinking? Behavior is a curious phenomenon and we may often wonder why we do the things we do. In short, it's because of our cells.

Our behavior, the decisions we make and the actions we take, are nothing more than cellular responses. How our cells are interpreting their immediate environment dictates how we respond to our environment. Studies of behavior show that often we are unaware of why we make the decisions we do, and that these decisions can be easily manipulated and influenced by subtle environmental cues. What may seem like a decision made freely may indeed not be so. My Cells Made Me Do It, explains the phenomenon of behavior as a matter of cellular determinism.

"Why do people do what they do? This wonderful book explains the science and shows why it matters. We are our cells and this book helps explain the diversity of the human experience by starting with the cell."--Paul J. Zak, author, The Moral Molecule.

"In the age-old debate over human free will, Robin Hayes presents an empirically based argument for deterministically fated behaviors. Insightfully drawing upon discoveries in molecular biology, his compelling case merges biology and philosophy to a new level in our pursuit to understand the human condition."--Erik Gergus, Ph.D. Biology, Glendale Community College.

"An answer to the age-old Problem of Freewill that demonstrates how and why our behaviors are inextricably determined by their biology and why freewill--or at least the illusion of free will--is necessary."--Terry D. Jones, Professor of Anatomy, California State University, Stanislaus.

"... the reader will be engrossed in the book from the get go. That is mainly because Hayes has used very simple words and terminologies to explain things to the reader. Even if you are not a medical or psychology major student, you too can understand the concept clearly..."--Five Stars, from Rabia Tanveer's review for Reader's Favorite.
