The book, Graves: Levels of Human Existence, is based on a transcription by Lee of a presentation made by Dr. Graves at the Washington School of Psychiatry and provides a good introduction to the theory, the research, and includes a reprint from the Journal of Humanistic Psychology, which lays out an early version of the point of view elegantly.
