it was amazing

I really enjoyed the illustrations of relationships this book had to offer. Basically, there are different combinations - usually between 2 people but can be more - in which certain mindsets or stages of ego-consciousness (Parent, Child, and Adult or Superego, Id and Ego) engaged in dialogue will result in certain reactions and responses. There are consistent patterns in this, a sort of script if you will. In analyzing one's own scripts, one can break free from them and find a third way, that is, of the Adult, and attract other Adults; or at least, be able to effectively resolve issues that could easily be avoided. This is an attempt to mature one's methods of communication. I wish there were more groups about Transactional Analysis.
