About the Author

Prof. Dr. Bankole Johnson brings his extensive knowledge in psychiatry, molecular genetics, forensics, addiction, and computational mathematics to bear. Make no mistake; this is not a book filled with hogwash and half-truths.

The writer, a seasoned academic, is aware of the deceptive power of misinformation. So, he provides empirical evidence for each assertion, going beyond drawing from his wealth of knowledge in the field.


“A fantastic work, really needed in this current era in which many are looking to develop a better understanding of human behavior.”

Professor Dr. Rahn Bailey,
Assistant Dean for Education, Charles R. Drew School of Medicine.

“Is there no end to Prof. Dr. Johnson’s prodigious

Upcoming Books

Six Rings Book


In this the second book of the Six Rings series, the author continues his use of allegorical stories using different characters to illustrate the concept he has termed Evaluative Personalization. In this book, art and music are again used to teach a very complex topic of how to use a multitude of strategies to aid an individual who is using alcohol or drugs excessively. 

Unlike the present apostolic view of many clinicians, there is a fundamental need to understand how the impact of the person’s life, and their journey through addiction, shapes the present and threatens the future.

Six Rings Book


In this book, the last in the present Six Rings series, you are now back in the present time. Bastian is at the height of his powers and intellect. We arrive in the present day like a jolt – it is the unforgettable summer of 2020, and the United States, indeed the world, is gripped by a novel COVID-19 viral pandemic.

The pandemic is severe and does not seem to be abating.  There is much confusion as to how to address the pandemic, authorities and politicians are seen arguing amongst themselves in the media, false promises of cures abound, and most of the country is in quarantine. There is some confidence that a vaccine is coming in the next six months to one year, but that is not certain.
