Content descriptions

Bibliography, etc. Note: Includes bibliographical references (pages 286-289) and index.
Formatted Contents Note: The Mind & Body -- The science of the mind -- The mind is what the brain does -- How we grow -- The Mind & World -- Social animals -- Rethinking intelligence -- What drives you? -- The Mind & Health -- Health, illness & the states in between -- The ultimate concerns -- Building a better self.
Summary, etc.: "Combining leading theories of psychology and behavior with case studies, personality quizzes, and practical advice, National Geographic Mind 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. Chapters start with the anatomy, evolution, and development of the human brain, then move into such interesting areas as intuition, creativity, motivation, faith, and ethics--all facets of a unique personality. Quirky, often funny, always thought-provoking photographs, cartoons, and illustrations bring the message home on every page. Interesting scenarios of mental health and mental deviance 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. An entertaining book about science, National Geographic Mind connects with the reader in a very personal and ultimately helpful way,"--Amazon.com.
