"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. 

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 " It It Weren't For You" and Uproar" to flirtation favorites like "The Stocking Game" and Lets You and Him Fight"  Dr. Berne exposes the secret plays and unconscious maneuvers the 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."  James R, Allen MD
