Synopses & Reviews
The fun and easy way to get anger under control
These days, anger is all the rage: 80 percent of drivers have been involved in road rage incidents, 65 percent of office workers have experienced office rage, and the FAA reported a 400 percent increase in air rage incidents between 1997 and 2000. This friendly guide explains how to disengage from rage and deal with anger constructively. Written for people with anger problems and their loved ones, the book shows how to analyze anger triggers, helps people understand what they re feeling and what they re doing during angry outbursts, and explores the effects of anger on families, coworkers, and health. Packed with illuminating case histories, it details a host of practical, proven techniques for thwarting anger, dealing with angry feelings, and forgiving.
