Games People Play - Eric Berne
This is one of the densest and most serious books on my shelf.
I think I've read it four or five times, each read is slower and more careful.
At first this book was just interesting. After study it now helps me avoid most human games, or at least be aware when I am involved in one.
This skill is invaluable.
Top ten for sure, mandatory reading.
