The book of the black cover was published from Sankei Publication in August, in 1973. The author of this book is Mr. Masahiko Nomi and the title is "Ketsueki-gata ningen-gaku" (Blood type humanics). It is his first book of blood type series. The book was sold over 300,000 copies in a short period and caused the first blood type boom throughout Japan. After this, Mr. Nomi wrote the second book "Ketsueki-gata aijo-gaku" (Blood type affection study) and the third book "Ketsueki-gata katsuyo-gaku" (Blood type utilization study). Soon "blood type and personality" became the buzz word of Japanese.
Mr. Nomi wrote this in the introduction of his book "Ketsueki-gata katsuyo-gaku" (Blood type utilization study)
"Ketsueki-gata ningen-gaku" (Blood type humanics) is the first one of this series. There were many topics, including introduction in meaning. In "Ketsueki-gata aijo-gaku" (Blood type affection study), I tried to explain affection objectively, which is usually thought to be subjective, by using many statistic data. As I am a perversive Type-B person.
In this "Ketsueki-gata katsuyo-gaku" (Blood type utilization study), compilation of knowledge of the two books, I will bigin to approach the essence of the heart and action of the human being from personality structures.
Attitude to relation itself between ABO blood type and humanity have changed a little with these three books. In "Ketsueki-gata ningen-gaku" (Blood type humanics), I said that it is "the scientifically inevitable fact" and "easy to understand the degree (of relation)" by actual examples and numbers. In "Ketsueki-gata aijo-gaku" (Blood type affection study), the statistics values show strong demonstration nature (of the relation) and impossible to avert eyes to this fact now". This book, "Ketsueki-gata katsuyo-gaku" (Blood type utilization study), carries new objective statistics in part two of chapter two, assume that the relation is the testified scientific fact. Now, It is entirely meaningless effort to discuss whether there is relation ... with blood type. I will concentrates on analyzing and observing it concretely, through supporting how that is expressed really with the data.
