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 free will decision may indeed not be so. The behavior of the organism is determined by how its cells respond to the stimuli being received.

The book examines how environmental conditions influence cell behavior, how human behavior is a manifestation of cellular responses, and how this eliminates free-will decision making.
