"This is a splendid book. The authors have thorough and up-to-date knowledge of the material, and their negotiation of the overall dialectic is extremely sharp. It will be the best introductory text on this topic on the market. The dialogues present a fair and balanced account of the arguments, and for that reason the book will be an attractive option, even in conjunction with an anthology."--Derk Pereboom, Cornell University
"The greatest strength of the book is its combination of readability with commendable thoroughness in the topics undertaken. The level is generally perfect for introducing this material to undergraduates."--J. Gregory Keller, Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis
"A darn good book." --Robert Gressis, California State University, Northridge
