I was going throught what they call a "Mid Live Crices" when I found this book. It was a light in the tunnel. Opened my eyes as to who, what, and where I was in relationship to who, what and where I wanted to be. Relationships are easier and better with knowlage of yourself and understanding yourself enables you to better understand others.
Highly recommended for those searching to find themselves.

The authors very effectively meld two dynamic treatment modalities in a manner that demystifies and provides the reader or therapist employable tools. I've found success using this book in small group and individual treatement over many years. Excellent book.

We all behave in ways that mystify us. There are those times when we find ourselves hypercritical and judgmental, or profoundly nurturing, or consumed with anger far out of proportion to the provocation, or able to reason with insight and dispassion. From whence come these vastly different responses to the triggers of life? Born To Win provides a vivid and compelling journey through the emotional (ego) states that are invoked by life events. The authors conceptualize these emotional (ego) states through the hypothetical construct suggested by Eric Berne, M.D. (Games People Play). In the 'Parent' state, we are judgmental or nurturing; in the 'Adult' state, rational and analytical; in the 'Child' state, impulsive and playful or angry and hurt. The authors demonstrate how our emotional responses to life events arise out of these three ego states. Each state has an appropriate time and place. Often, however, our inappropriate or self-defeating emotional responses occur because we have been overprogrammed by aversive early life events to respond from one ego state when another would be far more adaptive. Recognizing the inappropriate ego state and making the transition to the more proper ego state vastly improves the quality of one's life (e.g., responding to constructive criticism as a rational Adult instead of as a petulant Child). We are all 'born to win' and can do so when we learn to respond to life events from the proper ego state. Born To Win is an invaluable contribution to the cause of mental health.
