Editorial Reviews


"This handbook fills a need for a comprehensive survey of the field of self-knowledge. It will be of interest to a wide range of psychologists concerned with the roots of understanding one’s own attitudes and dispositions. The book will serve as a lively text for undergraduate and graduate seminars."--Richard E. Nisbett, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of Michigan

"This is a terrific presentation of research and theory on one of the most pervasive and fundamental concerns--what people know about themselves. A dizzyingly diverse array of perspectives from leading scholars makes this a wonderful source for anyone interested in the topic. Even the best-informed experts will find this a valuable reference and will learn something new, while newcomers to the field should look no further for a book to bring them quickly and easily up to speed on the state of knowledge. Bravo to Vazire and Wilson and their stellar cast of contributing authors."--Roy F. Baumeister, PhD, author of Willpower: Rediscovering the Greatest Human Strength

"This is [a] treasure chest for those interested in this topic....An important work for integrating a wealth of important but somewhat disparate research on self-knowledge, this comprehensive work provides valuable insights. Highly recommended. Graduate students, faculty, researchers, and practitioners."--Choice Reviews

More About the Author

Timothy D. Wilson is Sherrell J. Aston Professor of Psychology at the University of Virginia. He received his B.A. from Hampshire College and his Ph.D. from the University of Michigan. He is a social psychologist who has investigated unconscious processing, the limits of introspection, the consequences of introspection, affective forecasting, and happiness. In 2001 he received an All University Outstanding Teaching Award. In 2009 was elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and in 2010 he received the University of Virginia Distinguished Scientist Award. Wilson is the author of Strangers to Ourselves: Discovering the Adaptive Unconscious, published by Harvard University Press. Malcolm Gladwell wrote in the New Yorker that "Strangers to Ourselves" . . . is what popular psychology ought to be (and rarely is): thoughtful, beautifully written, and full of unexpected insights." On his web page Gladwell says, "In Blink, I probably owe a bigger intellectual debt to Tim Wilson (and his longtime collaborator, Jonathan Schooler) than anyone else, and Strangers to Ourselves is probably the most influential book I've ever read." Wilson is the coauthor of the best-selling text, Social Psychology (Prentice-Hall), now in its seventh edition.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Self-knowledge, self-regulation and self development are normal neurobiological and interpersonal processes. Vazire and Wilson propose an interdisciplinary approach extremely useful for lay people, trainees and trainers in human resources, psychotherapy, counseling,clinical medicine and psychology, and other area of interpersonal activities. Highly recommended.
