In the following section almost every “game” played consists of a woman doing some “foolish”, something most people do, that riles the “darling, hard working husband” and he reacts in an over dramatic, but “totally justified” way, once again playing the woman as foolish and childish.

Don’t interpret games in the colloquial sense – the author defines games as ‘series of complementary transactions to a well-defined outcome’. Some or all of the participants gets some reward as confirmation of inner beliefs, interaction with other people, protection from inner fears, recognition, etc, etc.

Some parts are outdated sociallythe “marital games” the most so, due to evolution of gender rolesbut the high-level ideas remain compelling.

Eric Berne, the author of this book, purpose is to explain all of the psychological games we are playing and how it affects our minds. A game is a pattern of behaviour usually involving two or perhaps three people. Props to Berne for being the impetus for continued study of games but there are better resources today. Taxonomizing social interaction with a pre-existing model of how the human mind works based on the biased findings of an eccentric Austrian psychologist makes for bad research.


I’d be fine if the author merely tried to show analogues of his findings in the Freudian model, i. What I wanted was to get the description of the game, see an example provided by an analysis, then see an example of the antithesis with similar analysis.

A second example that sticks out in my mind is when Berne describes the game of “See what you made me do”. First Degree is just playing for fun. In which the wife is in charge of accounting for the family finances.

He followed graduation with a residency in psychiatry at Yale University, where he studied psychoanalysis under Paul Federn. Vittorio Di Giuro Translator. Started this book and there were some interesting tidbits at the start about how people interact. Berne mentions the book in Chapter nine.

I still tried hard to continue reading but could not keep up my interest for long. I am reposting this because I had technical difficulties the first time.

Former Alcoholics are preferred because they know how the game goes, and hence are better qualified to play the supporting role than people who have never played before. Maybe the guy is just a lecherous creep. While the use of nifty sayings starts cute, it becomes fairly annoying. Women, in Berne’s mind seem to all be housewives, need a controlling husband, and silly little things who like to play “wardrobe” for hours on end.

It was wishlisted on paperbackswap.

I thought that, with a little effort, human behaviour could be observed in a very structured manner and condensed in a handbook to help with interpersonal relationships. Vittorio Di Giuro Translator. A psychiatrist’s take on “games”: Refresh and try again.


Perhaps sensing the irrelevance of this book, the publisher has included an introduction that presents the book as a precursor to positive psychology and “mentalization. She then calls the police and formally accuses him of rape. He continued to use pseudonyms, such as Cyprian St. In the first half of the book, Berne introduces transactional analysis as a way of interpreting social interactions.

The plot is about giving hero second chance to live his life, having all the memmories about previous try. Wrong Number of Pages? I have since shed some of that wishful thinking, but sometimes I indulge in that fantasy from time to time. I think most of the people will easily relate to what this book has to say. This book was published in the s and it shows.

I guess I should document the failures too.

I’m sure it could be useful to get berns understanding of transactional analysis from the psychologist who developed the method – but I found it inaccessible. Too serious for middle-aged me! See, honestly, this book is not for everyone, especially if one does not have a Psychology background. I’m sure this book is fantastic for those who are very experienced in this area of psychology.
