This book is Eric Berne's popularization of Transactional Analysis, the approach to understanding and treating realtionship disorders that he largely developed. Whatever its efficacy as a form of therapy, it is a fascinating way to veiw ordinary human interactions. I first read this book more than two decades ago and have gone back to reread portions of it ever since.
While Berne's categorizations of pastimes and games seems somewhat skimpy (after all, behavior is infinitly richer than any theory can easily handle) the basic assumptions of Transactional Analysis provide a new way of understanding much that people do that otherwise seems either meaningless or baffeling. It is a real contribution to understanding ourselves.
My life is not 'game free' but at least I recognize more of the games I play, and am less likely to mistake their arbitrary rules for life and death imperatives.
Definitly worth reading for anyone who values self examination.

Despite its success as a pop-psychology offering in the seventies and dialogues with titles such as, "Now I've Got You, You S.O.B.", this is a serious and valuable work. Based on the Freudian concepts of Id, Ego, and Super Ego, Berne states that all comunnications may be classified as being Child, Adult or Parent in nature. We may be drawn into the "game" that another creates unless we are able to recognize the nature of the communication and convert it into an Adult to Adult dialogue.
It is advisable to read this book out of sequence and to digest the theoretical explanation in the appendix before reading the games.
In summary, a very useful manual for maintaining rational discussion in all interpersonal situations.

Honest. This is one of the most important books for recognizing and avoiding the traps set by other people. It lays out the specific games and tactics used by those who seek dishonestly the sympathy, assistance, or time of other people. Those who play dishonest games and do not realize it, may recognize this in themselves.

When I finished this book, my immediate reaction was one of disappointment. It attempts to treat its subject more scientifically than is practical -- sometimes the "players" are identified, and sometimes they are not, sometimes the game has an antithesis and sometimes it does not. Berne would like to pretend that all of the games are structurally analogous, but it becomes clear that this is simply not so.
Interestingly enough, though, disappointment though it was, I don't regret reading this book one bit. I started to see some of these games going on around me, and I was able to identify other games that weren't mentioned in the book. The whole book reinforces an important concept -- that people can act and interact for reasons that have nothing to do with their own happiness.
Read the book and you'll understand, though perhaps not right away.

A must read for those who want to understand interpersonal behavior. Each human being needs strokes to live "psychologically" and this book illustrates how people play games in real life to get those strokes.
The games are explained based on Transaction Analysis which is becoming popular and a scientific and rational way to analyse each ones way of life. Careful reading will lead to interesting insights.

its a interesting book about communication. even though i thought that a common person might have trouble to understand it, its nicely written so i gifted it to friend after i read it. it is eye opening. it shows patterns of communications which psychologists know and therapists work with. it clarifies in an easy language what kind of games we play in relationship through communication and who benefits of those games.

Eric Bernes "Games People Play" ist ein Klassiker der Psychologie und wirklich sehr lesenswert. Das Englisch ist vielleicht nicht das leichteste überhaupt, doch wer öfter mal englische Bücher liest, wird auch mit diesem kein Problem haben. Trotz des komplexen Themas werden die Sachverhalte sehr spannend und leicht verständlich an den Mann gebracht. Ich hatte das Gefühl, etwas für den Alltag daraus mitnehmen zu können.

I read the 1978 edition of this book and it became a part of my life. When you see and recognize the games discussed in the book - in progress - it is hilarious. My 1978 edition was a paperback and has long since been read out of existence. Please send me a replacement. Thank you. Jim Poole, Private Investigator

I really enjoyed reading the book. It is an eye opening read! It makes you reconsider the games you play too :)

This book is pretty interesting and can actually be funny at times but it seems more like a mannual or a textbook than something one would read in one's leisure time. It explains the various mind games people play but doesn't help us use this information at all. It can also be rather dry and technical at times and seems to be written from a therapist's point of view for other budding therapists. So if you're hoping to read this as a layman and hope to use its contents to handle people better, you may want to think again.
