"Brian Little is one of the wisest, funniest, kindest, and most erudite people I have ever met, and in this book you’ll be treated to a generous helping of all these personality traits. A monumentally important book for anyone who wants to understand their colleagues, their loved ones—and their very own selves." —Susan Cain, author of New York Times-bestseller Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking
"Me, Myself and Us is a masterpiece. With extraordinary wit and wisdom, distinguished psychologist Brian Little offers startling insights about our trivial pursuits and magnificent obsessions. It should come with a warning label: this book will fundamentally change the way you see yourself and everyone you know." —Adam Grant, Wharton professor and bestselling author of Give and Take: A Revolutionary Approach to Success
"Professor Little’s class at Harvard was the reason I fell in love with psychology; get ready, this book will have the same effect on you—it’s insightful, clever and practical. Prof. Little is a genius, making personality psychology not only relevant but essential knowledge in the modern world." —Shawn Achor, New York Times–bestselling author of The Happiness Advantage and CEO of GoodThink

I believe Dr. Little would do the world a great favour, when he gets bored with the psychology of personality, if he decided to turn his light on the murky problems facing societies and economies.
