Robert Spencer Knotts is the author of 27 published books, many for young readers and written under the name Bob Knotts or a pseudonym. Among his newest books is "Beyond Me: Dissecting Ego To Find The Innate Love At Humanity's Core (A New Psychology As Philosophy). This book explores in great psychological detail our human tendency toward self-doubt, self-criticism and self-sabotage. And it demonstrates convincingly that this nearly universal problem is learned, directly resulting from the many significant but irrational self-images that individuals attempt to validate through outside appreciation by others. Other recent books include "Songs of a Certain Humanity," a collection of poems, lyrics and poetic fables He also has written five plays, numerous poems, blogs and other literary works. In addition, Knotts is a lifelong musician who has composed more than 100 compositions including “A Symphony of Some Humanity - Symphony #1 for Strings and Choir” and “All, In Joyful Song - A Carol In Three Movements.” In 2005, he founded the 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, the Humanity Project, and still serves as the group’s president and primary program creator. Based in South Florida, the Humanity Project instills greater respect for the goodness and inherent value of humanity. www.thehumanityproject.com ...
