(2016) The bestselling Games People Play is the book that has helped millions of people understand the dynamics of relationships, by psychiatrist Eric Berne.
We all play games. In every encounter with other people we are doing so. The nature of these games depends both on the situation and on who we meet.
Eric Berne’s classic Games People Play is the most accessible and insightful book ever written about the games we play: those patterns of behaviour that reveal hidden feelings and emotions. Wise and witty, it shows the underlying motivations behind our relationships and explores the roles that we try to play – and are forced to play.
Games People Play gives you the keys to unlock the psychology of others – and yourself. You’ll become more honest, more effective, and a true team player.
‘A brilliant, amusing, and clear catalogue of the psychological theatricals that human beings play over and over again’ Kurt Vonnegut
Eric Berne was a prominent psychiatrist and bestselling author.After inventing his groundbreaking Transactional Analysis, he continued to develop and apply this new methodology leading him to publish Games People Play. This became a runaway success and Berne leaves a remarkable legacy of over 30 other books and articles, as well as the founding of the International Transactional Analysis Association.
Dr Berne’s other works include Principles of Group Treatment, A Layman’s Guide to Psychiatry and Psychoanalysis’, and What Do You Say After You Say Hello? He died in 1970.

Confronting and solving problems is a painful process which most of us attempt to avoid. And the very avoidance results in greater pain and an inability to grow both mentally and spiritually. Drawing heavily on his own professional experience, leading psychiatrist Dr M. Scott Peck suggests ways in which facing our difficulties – and suffering through the changes – can enable us to reach a higher level of self-understanding. He discusses the nature of loving relationships: how to recognize true compatibility, how to distinguish dependency from love, how to become ones own person, and how to be a more sensitive parent. This is the bestselling self-help book that will change the way you live, and love, for good.

هل أنتِ غبية؟ هل تحبين العيش في دور المغفلة؟ هل تحبين إهانة نفسكِ إلى هذا الحد؟ هل إذا كان له الاختيار بينكِ وبينها كنتِ تعتقدين أنه سيختاركِ أنتِ؟ لماذا؟… ضعي لهذه المهزلة حدًّا! أنتِ تجرحين
نفسكِ ومَن حولكِ بأفكاركِ ومشاعركِ وأوهامكِ الغبية! سئمتُ من كذبكِ على نفسكِ وعليَّ، وسئمتكِ أنتِ شخصيًّا!».
أردت الاختفاء، وكنت على وشك البكاء، لكنَّ شيئًا ما جعل الدموع متحجرة، تأبى الخروج من مقلتيَّ. أشعر أنني على وشك الانفجار. هاتفت شمس في وقت متأخر من الليل. وجد صوتي مختنقًا بالبكاء، ولم أكن أريد أن أحكي له أي مشاعر أكنها لأدهم على الرغم من أنه الأقرب لي في هذه الدنيا.
– مالك؟ في إيه؟
– متضايقة شوية!
– مالك طيب؟ فيه حاجة؟ أجيلك؟
– لأ. أنا بس… هوَّ أنا ليه دايمًا الأوبشن التاني عند الناس

دوما ننتظر شخصا ما .. نظن أن بتنزله تنمحي كافة أوجاعنا .. نتوهم أن بإشراقته علي ظلمة أكواننا يتبدد التيه والحيرة ويغمرنا السلام .. نخدع ذواتنا خديعتنا الأعظم حين نهمس لأنفسنا وقت الوجيعة .. أن يوما ما .. وجوار شخص ما .. سنشعر بالإكتمال ! ولكننا ننسي أن عطبنا ذاتي .. وأن نقصنا مثبت فينا كنظام تشغيل ..
وأن ذاك الشخص ذاته الذي رأينا فيه المخلص وسبيل التحرر ..ربما هو من سيمنحنا خيبتنا الكبري .. ويجمع فجواتنا جميعا في فجوة واحدة .. أعظم !
وربما بدلا من أن نثمر جواره .. قد نذبل .. وننزوي .. ونتلاشي .. ونذوب !
ننسى أننا نحتاج أن نحسن صحبة أنفسنا ونداوي عطب نفوسنا .. قبل أن نترقب تنزل الآخر ..
لن يكون الآخر جنتنا أبدا ما دمنا فقط نسعى لتخدير أوجاعنا عبره .. وليست تلك العلاقة في حقيقتها سوي تلاهي لاواعي عن مقابلة الذات ومواجهة حقيقة أنفسنا !
العلاقات المرضية تبدأ هنا .. حين تصير العلاقة محض هروب وفرار .. ولا شيء أكثر ..
وإن أكثر الناس اقترافا لأخطاء الاختيار هم أولئك الذين ينتظرون بشغف ويترقبون بتلهف .. فتشتبه عليهم الوجوه .. ويسقطون فراغهم العاطفي علي وجه عابر ما ، فيشاهدونه بخلاف حقيقته ..
أولئك الذين يظنون أنهم يداوون الظمأ .. عبر تتبع السراب .. !
(حتي إذا جاءه .. لم يجده شيئا) !

(2021) From Dr. Nicole LePera, creator of “the holistic psychologist”-the online phenomenon with more than two million Instagram followers-comes a revolutionary approach to healing that harnesses the power of the self to produce lasting change.
As a clinical psychologist, Dr. Nicole LePera often found herself frustrated by the limitations of traditional psychotherapy. Wanting more for her patients-and for herself-she began a journey to develop a united philosophy of mental, physical and spiritual health that equips people with the interdisciplinary tools necessary to heal themselves. After experiencing the life-changing results herself, she began to share what she’d learned with others-and soon “The Holistic Psychologist” was born.
Now, Dr. LePera is ready to share her much-requested protocol with the world. In How to Do the Work, she offers both a manifesto for self-healing as well as an essential guide to creating a more vibrant, authentic, and joyful life. Drawing on the latest research from a diversity of scientific fields and healing modalities, Dr. LePera helps us recognize how adverse experiences and trauma in childhood live with us, resulting in whole body dysfunction-activating armful stress responses that keep us stuck engaging in patterns of codependency, emotional immaturity, and trauma bonds. Unless addressed, these self-sabotaging behaviors can quickly become cyclical, leaving people feeling unhappy, unfulfilled, and unwell.
In How to Do the Work, Dr. LePera offers readers the support and tools that will allow them to break free from destructive behaviors to reclaim and recreate their lives. Nothing short of a paradigm shift, this is a celebration of empowerment that will forever change the way we approach mental health and self-care.

(2021) An instant #1 New York Times bestseller, the new novel from the author of A Man Called Ove is a “quirky, big-hearted novel….Wry, wise and often laugh-out-loud funny, it’s a wholly original story that delivers pure pleasure” (People).
Looking at real estate isn’t usually a life-or-death situation, but an apartment open house becomes just that when a failed bank robber bursts in and takes a group of strangers hostage. The captives include a recently retired couple who relentlessly hunt down fixer-uppers to avoid the painful truth that they can’t fix their own marriage. There’s a wealthy bank director who has been too busy to care about anyone else and a young couple who are about to have their first child but can’t seem to agree on anything. Add to the mix an eighty-seven-year-old woman who has lived long enough not to be afraid of someone waving a gun in her face, a flustered but still-ready-to-make-a-deal real estate agent, and a mystery man who has locked himself in the apartment’s only bathroom, and you’ve got the worst group of hostages in the world.
Each of them carries a lifetime of grievances, hurts, secrets, and passions that are ready to boil over. None of them is entirely who they appear to be. And all of them–the bank robber included–desperately crave some sort of rescue. As the authorities and the media surround the premises, these reluctant allies will reveal surprising truths about themselves and set in motion a chain of events so unexpected that even they can hardly explain what happens next.
Proving once again that Backman is “a master of writing delightful, insightful, soulful, character-driven narratives” (USA TODAY), Anxious People “captures the messy essence of being human….It’s clever and affecting, as likely to make you laugh out loud as it is to make you cry” (The Washington Post). This “endlessly entertaining mood-booster” (Real Simple) is proof that the enduring power of friendship, forgiveness, and hope can save us–even in the most anxious of times.

(2020) Jewish women exiled from Egypt to New York share glimpses of a lost world, by the author of Khul-Khaal: Five Egyptian Women Tell Their Stories
Between 1948 and 1957, a period that witnessed two wars between Egypt and Israel, 60,000 members of Egypt’s 75,000-strong Jewish population left the country, compelled by growing hostility to them because of their presumed links to Zionism, economic insecurity, and after 1956, overt expulsion. Decades later, during the 1980s and 1990s, the personal reminiscences of eight Egyptian Jewish women, presently residents of New York who had left Egypt, were meticulously collected by Nayra Atiya.
While Atiya’s sample of eight narrators represents only a tiny percentage of the Jews who left Egypt, their accounts tell us much about the middle- and upper-class Jews who migrated to the Americas and Europe, giving us a vivid sense of their lives in Egypt before their departure and the dynamic role they played in Egyptian society. They were the children or grandchildren of generations of Jews who migrated to Egypt from around or near the Mediterranean to escape economic hardship and persecution or, in one case, a family conflict.
With one exception, Atiya’s interlocutors resided in relatively upscale neighborhoods in Egypt near other Jewish families. They lived in elegant apartments, with servants, fine foods, memberships in elite clubs, and summers spent near Alexandria or in Europe. In Zikrayat, Atiya movingly captures the essence of these women’s characters and experiences, the fabric of their day-to-day lives, and the complex, many-layered mood of those times in Egypt. In doing so she brings to life the ties that bind all Egyptians, offering a glimpse into a now vanished world?and the heartbreak of exile and migration.

(2018) The Shadow of the Wind is a stunning literary thriller in which the discovery of a forgotten book leads to a hunt for an elusive author who may or may not still be alive…
Hidden in the heart of the old city of Barcelona is the ‘Cemetery of Lost Books’, a labyrinthine library of obscure and forgotten titles that have long gone out of print. To this library, a man brings his 10-year-old son Daniel one cold morning in 1945. Daniel is allowed to choose one book from the shelves and pulls out ‘The Shadow of the Wind’ by Julian Carax.
But as he grows up, several people seem inordinately interested in his find. Then, one night, as he is wandering the old streets once more, Daniel is approached by a figure who reminds him of a character from the book, a character who turns out to be the devil. This man is tracking down every last copy of Carax’s work in order to burn them. What begins as a case of literary curiosity turns into a race to find out the truth behind the life and death of Julian Carax and to save those he left behind..
الهروب حل أنيق جدًا وبسيط جدًا عندما نتخيله، يمكنك أن تجمع حاجياتك في حقيبة سفر وتختفي في ساعة متأخرة متأخرة من الليل من دون أن يلاحظ أحد هروبك. لكن المقابل ضخم: أنت وحدك تمامًا، من دون رفيق أو صديق.
هذه هي لعبة الحياة القاسية. تريد شيئًا؟ سأعطيك إياه لكني سآخذ في مقابله شيئًا آخر. مقايضة رخيصة، ويجب أن تكون مفاوضًا جيدًا لكي تخرج بأقل الخسائر، لكن في كل الأحوال هناك خسارة. لن تنتبه لهذه الخسارة إلا عندما تحتاج إلى ما خسرته في وقت ما.
ولأن ألاعيب الحياة قذرة، لن تدعك تشتاق إلى ما خسرته في البداية، ولكنها ستجعلك تندم عليه على نحو أو آخر لاحقًا. وعندها لن تجد إلا أنصاف الحلول. هذه هي قواعد اللعبة. إذا لم تعجبك يمكنك شنق نفسك بأقرب حبل”
(2014) With the same extraordinary skill that he used to demystify scientific abstraction and the new physics, Gary Zukay, the award-winning author of The Dancing Wu Li Masters, here takes us on a brilliant and penetrating exploration of the new phase of evolution we have now entered.
With lucidity and elegance, Zukav explains that we are evolving from a species that pursues power based upon the perceptions of the five senses — external power — into a species that pursues authentic power — power that is based upon the perceptions and values of the spirit. He shows how the pursuit of external power has produced our survival-of-the-fittest understanding of evolution, generated conflict between lovers, communities, and superpowers, and brought us to the edge of destruction.
Using his scientist’s eye and philosopher’s heart, Zukav shows how infusing the activities of life with reverence, compassion, and trust makes them come alive with meaning and purpose. He illustrates how the emerging values of the spirit are changing marriages into spiritual partnerships, psychology into spiritual psychology, and transforming our everyday lives. The Seat of the Soul describes the remarkable journey to the spirit that each of us is on.

“Notes on Grief is an exquisite work of meditation, remembrance, and hope, written in the wake of Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s beloved father’s death in the summer of 2020. As the COVID-19 pandemic raged around the world, and kept Adichie and her family members separated from one another, her father succumbed unexpectedly to complications of kidney failure.
Expanding on her original New Yorker piece, Adichie shares how this loss shook her to her core. She writes about being one of the millions of people grieving this year; about the familial and cultural dimensions of grief and also about the loneliness and anger that are unavoidable in it. With signature precision of language, and glittering, devastating detail on the page—and never without touches of rich, honest humor—Adichie weaves together her own experience of her father’s death with threads of his life story, from his remarkable survival during the Biafran war, through a long career as a statistics professor, into the days of the pandemic in which he’d stay connected with his children and grandchildren over video chat from the family home in Abba, Nigeria.
In the compact format of We Should All Be Feminists and Dear Ijeawele, Adichie delivers a gem of a book—a book that fundamentally connects us to one another as it probes one of the most universal human experiences. Notes on Grief is a book for this moment—a work readers will treasure and share now more than ever—and yet will prove durable and timeless, an indispensable addition to Adichie’s canon.”
