This book is based on an in-depth conversation between Howard Burton and Philip Zimbardo, Professor Emeritus of Psychology at Stanford University. During this extensive conversation Philip Zimbardo relates his intriguing life history and the survival techniques that he developed from the particular dynamics of his upbringing in the Bronx to his quarantine experiences, his experiences with South Bronx gangs, and more.

Further topics include his relationship with his former classmate Stanley Ingram and the impact the different experiences in his youth had on the development of his personal situational awareness and how that influenced his psychological research. After a detailed description of the notorious 1971 Stanford Prison Experiment, Philip discusses what we have—and haven't—learned since then, the Abu Ghraib trial, his Heroic Imagination Project, and more.

This carefully-edited book includes an introduction, Should Have Knowns, and questions for discussion at the end of each chapter:

I. Origins - Humble beginnings

II. A Formative Quarantine - Developing social survival skills

III. Increasing Awareness - South Bronx rituals and Halloween distinctions

IV. Situation Stanford - The 1971 Stanford Prison Study

V. The Aftermath - Reactions and responses

VI. Outright Denial - Abu Ghraib and the myth of “bad apples”

VII. Learning Our Lessons? - Towards a deeper level of awareness

VIII. The Flip Side - The Heroic Imagination Project

IX. Spreading The Word - Cultivate heroes, and broader understanding

X. A New Gender Gap - Where have all the boys gone?
