Games People Play - MUST READ Book Review

This is like one of my all time favorite books for inner healing and trauma recovery / emotional abuse. Every single person in the world needs to understand Gestalt Transactional Analysis and the Games People Play. You know? Victim, Recuer, Persecuter... Black Sheep, Star, Lost Child... Really gives you perspective on repetitive patterns of unproductive behavior that's passed down from generations et al. People ask which books I recommend, this is a MUST READ. I am not benefiting financially from this recommendation.…/…/0345410033

Find more of my recommended books here. I am working on slowly building the list. There are so many books I love. Games People Play has had a huge impact on my healing, and my understanding of negative relational patterns in the family of origin. Have you read it? Let me know your thoughts! 

Amazon Recommendation:

"Forty years ago, Games People Play revolutionized our understanding of what really goes on during our most basic social interactions. More than five million copies later, Dr. Eric Berne’s classic is as astonishing–and revealing–as it was on the day it was first published. This anniversary edition features a new introduction by Dr. James R. Allen, president of the International Transactional Analysis Association, and Kurt Vonnegut’s brilliant Life magazine review from 1965.

We play games all the time–sexual games, marital games, power games with our bosses, and competitive games with our friends. Detailing status contests like “Martini” (I know a better way), to lethal couples combat like “If It Weren’t For You” and “Uproar,” to flirtation favorites like “The Stocking Game” and “Let’s You and Him Fight,” Dr. Berne exposes the secret ploys and unconscious maneuvers that rule our intimate lives.

Explosive when it first appeared, Games People Play is now widely recognized as the most original and influential popular psychology book of our time. It’s as powerful and eye-opening as ever. "
