Berne, E., 1964. Games People Play. London: Penguin. This is a classic study of the psychology of human relationships, with much of practical use for the project manager.

Gallwey, W.T., 2000. The Inner Game of Work. New York: Texere. Chapters 1, 8, 9 and 10 are particularly relevant to topics covered here.

Greene, R. and Elffers, J., 2000. The 48 Laws of Power. London: Profile Books. An excellent and highly readable manual of how to acquire and use power in organizations.

Harris, T.A., 1995. I'm OK, You're OK. London: Arrow. This book is much better than the title might suggest. It discusses how people are triggered to adopt different attitudes, labelled 'parent', 'child' or 'adult'. The 'child' behaves as if everything in the world can be fixed or changed by a 'parent'. 'Adults' realize that this is not always possible, no matter how desirable.

Maslow, A.H., 1998. Maslow on Management. New York: Wiley.
