Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Anger is a natural response to feelings of hurt, betrayal, and embarrassment, and a reliable outlet when we feel just plain stressed out. Yet many of us see anger as a negative, potentially dangerous emotion that should be suppressed.

But the truth is, anger is a gift—a natural, internal signal that unfailingly identifies an opportunity for healing and growth. The Gift of Anger shows you how to recognize this signal, discover the deeper meaning behind your anger, and change the relationships and situations in your life that frustrate you. In seven simple and effective steps, this book guides you past any level of anger, from mild irritation to rage, and toward a balanced approach to using anger for greater understanding and well-being.

By learning to see anger as a gift, you'll be able to:

  • Regain emotional balance after becoming angry
  • Identify and name the unmet needs at the root of your anger
  • Create an action plan for ensuring your needs are met
  • Understand and forgive others and have compassion for yourself

Review:

"Using anger-resolution techniques learned from other therapists and refined for her own clients, psychotherapist Cannon offers a seven-step blueprint for utilizing the positive potential of anger while dissolving its negative impulse. Cannon's process includes recognizing physical symptoms and mental patterns of anger and using a safe method, such as breathing deeply, to discharge one's initial rush of emotion; describing feelings about the anger-provoking experience by writing a self-discovery letter; and writing an affirmation statement that one's feelings and actions during the anger-provoking experience were correct. The other steps are identifying one's unmet need; deciding how to fill this need and taking manageable steps to do so, congratulating oneself after each step; exploring the other person's frame of reference during the angering incident; and freeing oneself by offering forgiveness to the person who angered one. If you're angry with yourself, Cannon offers a twist on the original with a nine-step gift-of-anger process, but this feels confusing and tacked on. The writing is pedestrian throughout, and although Cannon's process provides many helpful tools for self-knowledge and the harnessing of one's emotional turmoil, her anger-resolution techniques are best suited to accompany professional therapy or anger management sessions. (Apr.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)

Synopsis:

The Gift of Anger presents a radical approach to the concept of anger: instead of viewing anger as a problem, therapist and anger expert Marcia Cannon explains how it can be used as a gift and a cue for personal growth. Appropriately used, anger can help readers explore their core beliefs, strengthen their relationships with others, and fulfill their unmet needs.
