as a corporate lawyer and then switched to criminal law. Darrow was an eloquent speaker and often spoke out against the death penalty. In this book Darrow shares his ideas on the latest scientific thought and investigation discussing the question of human conduct. Darrow says, "My main effort is to show that the laws that control human behavior are as fixed and certain as those that control the physical world. In fact, that the manifestations of the mind and the actions of men are a part of the physical world."
