Type a Behavior: Its Diagnosis and Treatment
Type A behavior (TAB) afflicts over three quarters of all urban American males. This alarming trend toward widespread coronary-prone behavior has caused great concern among psychiatrists and cardiovascular specialists. Until now, no one has even attempted to treat TAB, while its diagnosis by many physicians has been faulty and has contributed to long-standing confusion about the relationship between TAB and heart disease. In this original guidebook, Meyer Friedman, the physician who first identified TAB in 1959, offers a full description of the most effective means of correctly diagnosing the disorder. More importantly, he presents for the first time a method of treating it. The guidebook offers a step-by-step description of Friedman's revolutionary method for treating this life-threatening disorder. This technique has met with success in thousands of persons suffering from TAB, in many cases, alleviating it completely.
