Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Devotees of popular psychology will be diverted if not persuaded by this lively, somewhat tabloid, foray into personality dynamics according to blood type. Nomi is founder of Japan's ABO Society, which California-based freelance writer Besher calls a "blood-type think tank," and that is fast gaining cult status on the Japanese mass market, where blood types are the '80s equivalent to sun signs. They maintain here, in a work embellished with colorful anecdotes, that type Os tend to be high achievers, goal oriented, dogmatic, very sexy and image conscious; As, introverted, methodical, idealistic and repressed; Bs, independent, mercurial and irresponsible; and ABs (the rarest group), analytical, intense, trustworthy yet indecisive. Quizzes and charts encourage readers to assess themselves and their relationships in light of this analysis. There is also advice on love, marriage and careers. Bearing in mind that a specific link between blood type and personality, with no concrete scientific basis, is merely an appealing hypothetical constructa cross between astrology and a liberal extrapolation of trait theoryNomi's models nonetheless offer insights into the motivations and behavior of those with clearly dominant personality characteristics.

Format: Paperback
Besher, journalist and student of Nomi of Japan, brings the revolutionary theory of blood type/personality linkage to the West in this classic 1979 book. Besides this one, there's Constantine's 1997 New Age "What's your type?" which updates this fascinating science, and D'Adamo's 1996 "Eat Right for your type." But this book is a classic and must-read for truly understanding this field unknown to Americans but well-documented since the 40's in the East and Europe. Reading it promises to change your whole outlook on life and society because the story of blood types is the story of man's evolution.

Format: Paperback
This book is based on a survey of I think 100,000 people. I read it with my family and we laughed on how accurratly it was discribing the family. Although, it is very accurate, everyone is different and it does have a few misshaps for each blood type.It tells you what kind of person you are based on your blood type.It seems to be the best personality profile that we have had in a long time. I do reccomend this book for others to read.

I borrowed this book from my local library, I wanted to know if it was worth for me to purchase it. It is a book that use blood type for the sake of entertainment. I don't think a book that explain dreams or a horoscope goes far behind what the authors are writing here. I will not buy it.
