Hodder & Stoughton has acquired a new book from neuroscientist Dr Hannah Critchlow, The Science of Fate, exploring how much of our fate is already predetermined.
Named a Top 100 UK scientist by the Science Council for her work in science communication, Dr Critchlow is the Science Outreach Fellow at Magdalene College, University of Cambridge. She published her first book, Consciousness: A Ladybird Expert Guide, with Michael Joseph last June.
In her latest work, described “a compelling, highly relatable and accessible read”, she challenges the belief we are masters of our own destiny and strives to show how far we are already hardwired for our own futures. To do this, she draws on experiences we encounter in our everyday lives, as well as from the research of leading experts in their field, from obesity expert Giles Yeo to former Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams.
