'Into TA is a much-needed overview of contemporary thinking and practice. The authors have successfully applied a format in which readers with different levels of insight or experience in transactional analysis can find their way. In each chapter the authors take the reader on a journey from basic to deeper and broader understanding of the concepts and their context, making bridges to other psychological and organisational theories. By paying attention to the development of theory and practice, the book integrates the notions of changing by insight and changing by doing. In the tradition of Eric Berne, this is a highly recommended book for professionals, clients and patients.'- Servaas van Beekum, teaching and supervising transactional analyst, social scientist and past president of EATA and ITAA; winner of the 2015 Eric Berne Memorial Award'This great book responds to a perceived need in the TA community, something completely new in the literature: a comprehensive textbook of TA theory and practice. The book offers a rich and detailed review on the development of TA theory, which is covered from its beginning to the more recent advancements. It roots Transactional Analysis in a fascinating way into the contemporary discoveries of psychology and neurosciences and presents a complete connection and integration of TA with other psychological theories and approaches. A highly appreciated book, an invaluable present for transactional analysts.'- Marco Mazzetti, psychiatrist, teaching and supervising transactional analyst, past president of EATA; winner of the 2012 Eric Berne Memorial Award
