In Friday's Laws, psychologist Dr. Paul Friday presents eight succinct principles to help readers become normal when they are not, or to stay normal despite the stresses of their lives.
Human beings are interested in other human beings. We like to know how others live, what they feel, how they cope and survive on their individual and collective womb-to-tomb trips. What other human beings do to win at living becomes an informational target for all of us. We emulate behaviors which we feel are potentially good and productive; we avoid the behaviors that potentially are bad and non-productive. Friday's Laws is based on my work with thousands of patients in well over 50,000 hours of a clinical practice. Hundreds of lectures, radio shows, and television interviews propelled the creation of this work. This book will show you how normal and not-so-normal people exist side-by-side in this difficult world. By emulating the thinking and behaviors of normal people, it is hoped that your life will improve in quality regardless of the quantity of living that remains for you.
