Basic truths about psychological lies we tell ourselves and others. We all do it. The key is to become aware that we do it and to make a point to endeavor to catch ourselves at it and hold our selves accountable for making the best choices we can possibly make.
As you read this book, there will likely not be any great revelations; it may even seem obvious on some levels and very simplistic...but it may have you squirming in discomfort as you recognize yourself. Well, that is what happened to me- whether you are the game player or the one that gets sucked into the game...this book will help you learn how to stop the madness.

Not my favorite psychology book, but there is ample food for thought here.

The classic book on transactional analysis. It's an older theory, but still useful today. If you're curious as to why your interactions with others seem to be about more than the subject at hand, this is an easily accessible way to learn about our inner dialogues. Very useful if you're interested in learning about cognitive restructuring.
