About the Author

Dr Eric Berne, as the originator of transactional analysis, was always recognised as an important innovator in the field, but it was not until his Games People Play became an international bestseller that his methods achieved wide popularity. In his writings, until his death in 1970, Dr Berne outlined the principles of his system in works such as Games People Play, A Layman's Guide to Psychiatry, Sex in Human Loving, and Principles of Group Treatment. Dr Berne was a practising psychiatrist in Carmel, California, and held many important posts in professional psychiatric organisations and clinics.

The author of this book is Dr. Eric Berne. He founded the school of Psychology known as Transactional Analysis. It was Berne's final work, published around the time of his death, ca. 1970.

The most important thing to know about this book is that NO ONE SHOULD READ IT BEFORE STUDYING TWO EARLIER TITLES: (1) I'M OK -- YOU'RE OK and (2) GAMES PEOPLE PLAY. Books 1 and 2 are the foundational documents of Transactional Analysis. But, WHAT DO YOU SAY...HELLO? is about a specialized subject in TA, Life Scripts. Indeed, Berne said that the state of the art knowledge of scripts in 1970 was still primitive. He compared it to automobiles in 1900.

With these warnings, WHAT DO YOU SAY is very useful to students who are ready for it. Berne was a good author, but one of his faults was to describe things incompletely. Thus, when he recaps earlier material in this final book, the reader gets another view which helps fill-in the earlier gaps. Ironically for me, this recap of earlier material was acutally more useful than the main subject matter: Scripts.

In fairness, we should also remember that Berne said his books were published for professional psychoanalysts, not for the general public.

i. suggest the book to those who want to understand their behaviour and attitude and want to change certain thoughts and beliefs that prevent us from being our true self.
sometimes it is a bit technical for those who are not proessionist in the field but it is understandable overall and gives you interesting hints.

Great book as always with Eric Berne, you'll learn a lot about how your mind works and why you think and act the way you do (might even be scary...).
The only complain is that sometimes the author doesn't get too much into the subject and leave it to the reader to understand what he's talking about. Without prior knowledge of Eric Berne's work it might be hard to understand sometimes (even with).
You have to remember that this book was published after he died, so it might sometimes feel like it's not quite finish.
