After reading "games people play", I decided to delve further into transactional analysis this book certainly makes it possible for a greater understanding of how people structure their time and live in and out of their, often, confusing behaviour & lives.
I've never really clicked with Eric Berne's style and found this book ok, but it wasn't the eye-opener I was hoping for. I am a fan of TA, but believe more recent books contain the best of his work and the benefit of other researchers insights - it would be better to read one of them if you're looking for an introduction or summary of TA.
i purchased this book as i have been interested in this subject after many years and many books and plenty of counselling i have at last got the guist of it all i would reccomend.if you are interested in this type of subject .
For any of you wanting to know if this book is worth buying, I would recommend that anyone who feels stuck after the first greeting, buys this book and dips in and out of it for inspiration! I had no idea that interacting with others was so simple......other people always make it look so easy! I can talk to anyone, but sometimes conversation can be harder on some days than others! A good selection of techniques to try and especially on different occasion and with different people. Know, adapt and respond with more confidence! The book is essential for those with low self-esteem and those in sales!
