About this book


Meyer Friedman, the physician who first identified Type A behavior (TAB), here offers a full description of the most effective way to correctly diagnose it. This guidebook offers a step-by-step description of his revolutionary method that has proven successful in treating thousands of TAB sufferers, in many cases, alleviating it completely. A truly unique resource, Type A Behavior features drawings and photographs illustrating the psychomotor signs of TAB. A special appendix lists a series of quotations found especially useful for changing some of the false belief systems held by TAB subjects.
