A practical guide to knowing yourself.

Socrates summed up all philosophical commandments with one directive: "Know yourself." Self-knowledge informs not only our identity, but how we make decisions in life, work, and love. Society has no shortage of people and organizations offering to guide us to distant places, but very few will help us with the far more important task of traveling around the byways of our own minds. This book takes us on a journey into our deepest, most elusive selves and arms us with the tools we need in order to fully understand our characters. We come away with a newly clarified sense of who we are, what we need to watch out for when making decisions, and how to fulfill our true potential.

* A PRACTICAL TOOLKIT for self-discovery.
* THE SCHOOL OF LIFE'S MOST POPULAR SUBJECT the associated YouTube video "Who Am I?" has 1.5 million views.
