SUMMARY = This book combines leading theories of psychology and behavior with case studies, personality quizzes, and practical advice.
BOOK DESCRIPTION = The book explores the question we all enjoy asking: Who am I? This whimsically illustrated reference explores today's theories of personality, mixing scientific theory with an underlying message--by knowing more about your own psychology, you can have a better life.
The book opens with chapters about human anatomy, evolution, and the development of the human brain. Then, it covers such interesting areas as intuition, creativity, motivation, faith, and ethics, which are all facets of a unique personality.
The book is quirky, often funny, always thought-provoking with dramatic photographs, cartoons, and illustrations that desceribe the brain's parts and mind's functions. There are interesting scenarios of mental health and mental deviance that make for a lively, readable narrative that combines today's leading theories in the science of the mind and personality with life-enhancing questions, quizzes, practices, and tools for self-discovery.
