About the Author

Born in Texas, Harris took his science degree in 1938 from the University of Arkansas Medical School. In 1942 he began his psychiatry training in Washington DC at St. Elizabeth Hospital. He was a Navy psychiatrist for several years, becoming chief of the Psychiatry Branch and leaving the service as a commander. This was followed by a teaching post back at the University of Arkansas, and then a period as a senior mental health bureaucrat. He continues to practice psychiatry in Sacramento, California, and is a director of the Transational Analysis Association. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Discovering Transactional Analysis may well change your life. It certainly changed mine.
This book provides a very accessible and readable introduction to transactional analysis.
However the book is dangerously out of date. It was written in the 60s and has not been brought up to date.
What I found out after reading this book and getting really interested in TA is that in the 60s TA went through a period where it was adopted as a kind of pop-psychology and a number of books were published which are now regarded as over-simplified. Also TA has moved on a lot in the last 30 to 40 years and there are now widely accepted theories and techniques which were not around in the 60s. A much more modern book is TA Today : A New Inroduction to Transactional Analysis,Ian Stewart, Vann Joines . Which I would recommend in preference to this book.

I loved this book for giving me an interesting new framework from which to understand my life. It brought me clarity and an 'ah-ha' kind of understanding to long standing problems that had been upsetting my life. The kind of book you really want to recommend to others who are in difficulty and need more understanding of the dynamics of human relationships...if only they would listen!!!Read It!!!!

I really enjoyed this book, both as a trainee counsellor and as a human being. It is a good starter to TA and the reader can readily identify with the processes described. It is very out of date, although I think you can read your way around this by bearing in mind it is a product of the 60s.
'Staying OK', the sequel written predominantly by Harris' wife, is a good read for those who want to follow up the theory with some practice. It makes entertaining reading, although it is rather more self-help than the self-enlightenment of the original.

If you ever feel insecure and worry what others think about you then this is the book for you. Harris explains in simple terms the breakdown of the personality and enables you to understand what makes people the way they are. It would be a shame if people went through life never having had the fortune to comprehend the details in this book. The PAC model is simple and it works.

If you are having issues communicating with anyone, this is the book for you.

Be warned, it is a little dated - which I actually found amusing.

I read this book back in the '60's and it has been a great help in my life. I am giving a book report on it next week in class. I have just recently returned to school at the age of 59. Career Management Class is requiring a short book report on self-improvement. I sincerely believe that this book is a great asset to help anyone with self-improvement, ant that's the reason I have choosen it for my report.

This book changed things big time for me. And thats a complete understatement. Its more like enlightenment. Transactional Analysis is a discovery of what we are. Period. And this book does an excellent job of introducing you to just that. If you are new to TA, or if some body has suggested you to look into it, I believe this book to be the very best first text. Your world will never be the same!
