Discovering home truths, 4 Jan 2011
Have just finished reading this book and loved it. This is the third Eric Berne book I've read and I think it may well be his best (it was of course his last before he died). The style of writing is clear throughout, often peppered with Berne's sharp wit. The idea of us creating scripts for ourselves in early life that dictate the course of our lives is a stunningly mindblowing idea, and it's dealt with very thoroughly in this book. A great book to read whilst at the same time considering the course of your own life. I'm a filmmaker and also enjoyed it from a creative perspective, the way Berne discussed fairy tales and Greek myths in relation to people's lives was most enlightening.
