The Psychology of Understanding Yourself
By Virginia Schroeder Burnham and William H. Hampton, M.D.
Written by medical research consultant Virginia Burham 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.

Thinking and doing, supported by intelligence and energy are the fundamental building blocks of every personality. When you understand them, you can understand yourself and direct your life into the most advantageous and positive areas. And by knowing yourself, you will learn how to know others better. You may even find that being neurotic is normal and in some ways helpful to your well-being.
