This authoritative handbook reviews the state of the science of self-knowledge, a key emerging area in psychology. Leading investigators describe innovative theory and research that is shedding new light on how-and how accurately-people perceive their own traits, thoughts, feelings, behavior, and relationships. Coverage encompasses the behavioral, mental, biological, and social structures that underlie self-knowledge; approaches to studying self-beliefs in specific domains; and the motives and biases that influence accuracy. The volume explores the personal and societal benefits of self-knowledge and also considers possible ways to enhance it.

"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, 1/1/2013
