Think it's only coming out in paperback and electronically and costs like $6US.

Also, he's a philosopher first and a neuroscientist second, so I don't really know how much of his findings are scientific.

Here's an interesting contrarian view in the NY Times. Is Neuroscience the Death of Free Will? But this guy is just a philosopher Wink (i.e. he doesn't hold a PhD in Neuroscience like Harris). The lengthy 300+ comments section after the article is even more informative.

Whether he's doing empirical or analytical work don't matter none to me, accept nothing, trust no one. ... Wait, did I just quote Fox Mulder? wtf?!? Huh

Breathing - it's more art than science.
