Do you realise you, and all the people you know, play games? All the time? Sexual games, marital games, complex games that you re not even aware of as you go about your usual life? You might play games like Alcoholic or The Frigid Woman' at weekends, or perhaps 'Ain't it awful' or Kick me while you re at work.
First published in the 1960s and recognized as a classic work of its kind by professionals, the bestselling Games People Play is also an accessible and fascinating read. It is a wise, original, witty and very sensible analysis of the games we play in order to live with one another and with ourselves.
