This book is the third in Hoopoe Book's ALL ABOUT ME series. In it readers will look at how people (from our parents to our peers) and media (from advertising to the internet) try to influence us. In many situations we are influenced to think, feel or behave in ways we might not usually do. Sometimes that influence is helpful, but at other times we end up shortchanged. The book explores situations and examples that will help us become more aware of the forces nudging and pushing us. To get the most of out the book, there are many fun and entertaining activities the reader can do over and over again, and which help us to see more clearly when we being helped or when we are being manipulated, brainwashed and tricked. And readers can learn when and how to protect themselves from unwanted influence. The author, David Sobel, M.D., is a practicing physician and presents ideas that are easy to read and absorb. The book is illustrated by artist Jeff Jackson with a cast of teen characters and images to help highlight these ideas. The All About Me Series from Hoopoe Books presents books to help you understand yourself and how you, as a human being, work. This is fundamental information, but we often forget to teach you about it in school. For example, what psychologists know about how we see, think, and feel. How these abilities work, how they change, grow or get stuck and how reliable they are as we try to make sense of ourselves, our friends, our relatives and the world around us. There is good, solid information readily available and scientifically validated ... and it's all about you ... and me.

From the Back Cover:

The third book to come out in the “All About Me” series, What’s the Catch? How to Avoid Getting Hooked and Manipulated, explores the ways in which our thinking, feelings, and behavior are influenced by those around us. Sometimes this kind of influence is helpful, but at other times it ends up “shortchanging” us. Readers will learn to distinguish between the two kinds of situations, so that they can more easily tell when they’re really being helped, and when they’re merely being manipulated, brainwashed, or tricked. Written in a clear and accessible style by physician David Sobel, What’s the Catch? is illustrated by Jeff Jackson with an engaging and multiethnic cast of teen characters, who act out and embody the various ways in which we’re influenced by others. Readers will learn to become more aware of the forces nudging and pushing them, as well as how to protect themselves from unwanted and unhelpful influence. By coming to understand their own reaction patterns, they’ll be able to avoid getting “hooked.” In What’s the Catch?, young people will discover all that scientists and researchers know, and also explore questions yet to be answered. Illustrative quotes from real-life teens, as well as simple activities the reader can do to relate to the concepts presented, make the book truly come alive for young people. Also included are suggested activities for teachers to use in the classroom. What’s the Catch? can be used to supplement a high school psychology course, or as a stand-alone unit in grades 8 through 12.Edited by renowned psychologist and author Robert Ornstein, Ph.D., and Denise Nessel, Ph.D., of the National Urban Alliance for Effective Education, the “All About Me” series provides an all-inclusive program designed to meet the American Psychological Association's National Standards for High School Psychology Curricula, the California Middle School and High School Health Standards, the California State High School Life Science Standards, the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards – Health, and the National Board Professional Teaching Standards: Adolescence and Young Adulthood Science Standards. 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. The first title in the series, Me and My Memory: Why We Forget Some Things and Remember Others, was published in the spring of 2009. Me and My Feelings: What Emotions Are and How to Manage Them is being published concurrently with What’s the Catch? Forthcoming titles include Perception: What We See and Don’t See will be published in the Fall of 2010.
