It may seem a little confusing at first, but if you stick with it, a new way of thinking about conversations emerges. The Parent - Adult -Child axis is still incredibly helpful in understanding our own behavior and that of others, and in providing a language with which to find a way of understanding.

I remember from my Social Worker class that the Transactional Analysis is the concept of the Parent, Adult, and Child ( P-A-C) ego states that are compose every one of our personalities.
The Parent ego state contains all the information we accept as true that we have gathered from authority figures including our parents.
The Adult ego state is the collection of all information that we have proven to ourselves as being true using our personal logic.
The Child ego state is our natural good and bad side of feelings - love, anger, greed, empathy
To understand yourself or others this is the book to read it will at least give you a break down on possible situations, feelings either your own or somebody's else.
I complete this book having ideas on how to tackle difficult people, and also some guidance on how to avoid myself falling into argumentative traps.
I wish I had have encountered this book sooner.
I found the first two chapters boring as they were focused on giving a preamble to the TA technique, but after that it was a good read.
