A delightful tour of the wonders of our humanity from David G. Myers, the award-winning professor and author of psychology's bestselling textbook.
How Do We Know Ourselves? is a thought-provoking book about psychological science insights on our everyday lives. David G. Myers shares astute observations and sharp-witted wisdom to enable people to think smarter and to delight in the wonders of their lives.
Myers's explorations range from why we so often fear the wrong things to how simply going for a walk with someone can increase rapport and empathy. He covers why we repeatedly mishear song lyrics, and how President Obama's choice to wear only gray or blue suits supported his decision-making focus. And Myers explores the powers and perils of our intuition, explaining why anything can seem obvious once it happens.
Each essay offers fresh insight into our sometimes bewildering but ever fascinating lives. Myers inspires us to grapple with the timeless question How do we know ourselves? Engaging and intellectually provocative, he brings his wealth of knowledge from more than fifty years of teaching and writing about psychology to this lively and informative essay collection.
