    Fascinating!

    Many times in my life, I was placed in social situations that left me feeling so depleted afterwards and I could not exactly grasp why this was happening. When I read this book, I started to understand how many people play these games that end up making me feel used and hopeless. After a year or so, I also began realizing that I play some of these games myself. I realized that although they work as temporary coping devices, they become obstacles to my personal development in the long run. This is when I really decided to change my life. I began living with a new awareness of the behaviors of not only others but my own as well! It has worked wonders and if I could explain this process, I would like to share it with everyone! But since I am not so good at explaining these things, I will suggest a book that explains this very well. It is called 'The Ever-Transcending Spirit' by Toru Sato and it explains all of these things in such a great way! Read this book by Berne! Read the book by Sato! It will be the best gift you give to yourself!

    Excellent book!

    Wow! What an interesting book! This book shows us that there is much more going on in any human interaction than the exchange of information. It show us the hidden meaning and purpose behind all types of interactions and how we all participate in those hidden 'games' without being aware of it. For better or for worse, this book will totally change how you see the world. A newer book called 'The Ever-transcending Spirit' by Toru Sato provides a excellent account of why we play these games and how it relates to our development as human beings. Sato puts all of this in a larger context and enables us to see the light as well. Excellent book! All I can say is, both books are pure gold.

    Let the games begin

    I do not usually give a title 5 stars unless I feel it is an important read. This book is beneficial to the reader in that it reveals the psychological mechanisims behind interpersonal relationships. It explains why people argue so much and why arguing has a hidden bennefit. He explains how and why each of us need constant human contact, whether it be negative or positve. In the end he reveals some of his thoughts on how to overcome these games with simple awareness. If you read this book, it will profoundly affect your perception on human relations forever.

    Insightful book on relationships!

    This book is full of insights about what is really going on in relationships. It truly opened my eyes about the people around me and person I am. If you are interested in understanding relationships, this is a must read! If you want to take your understanding a few steps further, read Dr. Toru Sato's Rhythm, Relationships, and Transcendence. This expand's on Dr. Berne's ideas and relates it not only to relationships but also to consciousness, human development and evolution. It is a already a bestseller among relationship experts.
