Games People Play is a famous 1964 book by psychologist Eric Berne. Since its publication it has sold more than five million copies.[1] The book describes life as a series of games in which people interact through a patterned and predictable series of transactions which are superficially plausible but actually conceal motivations and lead to a well-defined predictable outcome. Not all interactions are games, however. Continuing his work with transactional analysis, Dr. Berne also discusses procedures, rituals, and pastimes in social behavior.

Presently, more than 10,000 people around the world define themselves as transactional analysts.
