The Psychology of Understanding Yourself
Written by medical research consultant Virginia Burnham in collaboration with psychiatrist William H. Hampton, Knowing Yourself is a self-help book that focuses on learning more about oneself, and using that knowledge and wisdom to improve both one’s own lot and that of others. Individual chapters address distinctions in the self between men and women; aspects of sexuality; the workings of the brain; the makeup of personality, and more. A fascinating and involving read that embraces the classic wisdom of Socrates himself when he said, “Know thyself, for once we know ourselves, we may learn how to care for ourselves, but otherwise we never shall.” Knowing Yourself is an especially commended addition to Self-Help/Self-Improvement reading lists.
