Reviews

“I have designed this book as a practical study of a wide variety of social engagements construed in relation to their favorable or unfavorable outcomes. Some models examine what happens when competitive urges dominate cooperate activities. Other favor alternative outcomes. A careful balance between individual competition and mutual cooperation is required to nurture authentic bonds in optimal human relations. Moreover, a synthetic blend of individual competence and relational compatibility provides creative pathways to sustain an abiding sense of cohesion and solidarity.”
