More About This Book

Overview


This may be one of the most important books you will ever read. It identifies,
defines, describes, analyzes, and suggests actions to take toward a highly pervasive social phenomenon that social scientists should have recognized at least a century ago. Somehow the social scientific community has always overlooked this phenomenon, even though it affects, if not envelops, a large majority of people in modern society.

This phenomenon is likely one of the leading causes of frustration, stress,
fatigue, disappointment, disillusionment, depression, unhappiness, anger,
quarrels, road rage, violence, substance abuse, domestic abuse, neurosis,
and perhaps even suicides in modern civilization. This is the phenomenon of
"afriations".

Don't try to look that term up in any source other than this text. It's a term the author had to coin for this concept which has yet to be academically identified. Yet afriats are probably the most complained about topic of conversation, and for tens of millions of Americans, they cause some of our most dreaded problems.

With the simple understanding of afriations, and a basic knowledge of how to interact with afriats, we can avoid much of the stress and grief caused by afriations.

    Finally a contemporary explanation on social behavior!

    Afriats is a helpful model of looking at social interactions. The Seven Interactional Categories breathe clarity into the often muddled world of humans. Previous theories delude people in the real nature of their relationship to someone. This would be helpful information for the Middle School I work at, where the look someone gives another student is enough to start a long term conflict. If we all understood the structure of interpersonal relationships...from first contact, things would be a lot easier for us.

    Fascinating

    This book is the only one of it's class. I've been unable to find another that deals with the same problem. If you've ever been in a working situation where you've had to deal with co-workers that are less tha ndeal, this book is for you.

    Keen observances

    Afriats offers a unique prospective of interpersonal relationships. Mr. Baker uses a pleasing writing style without resorting to sociological jargon. His writing shows that he has experienced life and Afriats is apparently the result of those experiences.

    Provocative approach to social interactions

    'AFRIATS' explains in a very original manner the structure and organization of contemporary society. The author gives insight into life today by actually providing names categorizing groups of individuals with whom everyone is forced to relate. This is one of the few books I have read which clarified experiences in my past.

    groundbreaking

    Truly a groundbreaking explanation of interpersonal relationships and how to survive in the forced situations. A very insightful, easy to understand approach to a previously unexplored topic.
