You've probably had that baffling experience of trying and failing to remember someone's name - even you when you know you know it. Or maybe you've pulled into your driveway and realized you had no recollection of the drive you just took. Or perhaps you've failed a test that you were certain you'd ace. Why are we so often wrong about what we know? How can we do something as difficult as driving without thinking about it? And how is it possible to know you've forgotten something? Underlying these experiences is a complex process called metacognition - the ability to think about what we and others do or don't think and know. 'Know Thyself' is cognitive neuroscientist Stephen Fleming's unprecedented, definitive, and endlessly fascinating examination of this essential human ability.
