A project under the direction of Robert Ornstein with contributions from associates of The Institute for the Study of Human Knowledge.

"The future depends on how we understand who we are, and how the past has made us so: what is unchanging about Human Nature, and what we CAN and MUST change to face a world that is far different from our ancestors'". From the Introduction,

The All About Me is a series of books to help young people understand themselves and how we all, as a human beings, work. This is fundamental information, but we often forget to teach students about it in school. The series provides an all-inclusive program designed to meet the American Psychological Association's National Standards for Psychology at the high school level, the standards established for the College Board AP Psychology course, and the National Board Standards for Science/Adolescent and Young Adulthood. Focused on the mind, each text provides a set of lessons and various activities that teach sophisticated brain research in an accessible and interesting way. Edited by Robert Ornstein and Denise Nessel, with a Foreword by Robert Ornstein.
