Blast from the past!
Another of those books I remember floating around the house when I was a kid. I doubt my parents actually read it. Where it came from I don't know. Where it went I don't know. The 70s! Man! Dig? And the omnipresent smiley face.
I'm OK, You're OK, by Thomas A Harris MD, is one of the best selling self-help books ever published. It is a practical guide to Transactional Analysis as a method for solving problems in life. From its first publication during 1967, the popularity of I'm OK, You're OK gradually increased until, during 1972, its name made the New York Times Best Seller list and remained there for almost two years. It is estimated by the publisher to have sold over 15 million copies to date and to have been translated into over a dozen languages.
The phrase "I'm OK, You're OK" is one of four "life positions" that each of us may take. The four positions are:
1. I'm Not OK, You're OK
2. I'm Not OK, You're Not OK
3. I'm OK, You're Not OK
4. I'm OK, You're OK
