Publisher Comments:

The 20th Anniversary edition of The Dance of Anger, with a new introduction by the author, celebrates the renowned classic and New York Timesbestseller that has transformed the lives of millions of readers, dramatically changing how women and men view relationships.

In Dance of Anger, Lerner shows women how to turn anger into a constructive force for reshaping their lives. She illuminates the causes and patterns of anger while providing specific strategies for making meaningful and lasting changes in important relationships. Basing her conclusions on her clinical work and drawing on psychoanalytic and family systems theory, she illustrate how, and why, our anger (be it vented through fighting and blaming or silence and emotional distancing) often protects rather than challenges existing relationship dynamics. And she explains the difficulties women have not only in getting angry but also in using their anger to gain a stronger and more independent sense of self.

As the 20th Anniversary of The Dance of Angerapproaches, anger is an even bigger issue in our society than it was 20 years ago. In our troubled times, anger and intolerance are at an all time high. Like a family heirloom passed from one generation to another, The Dance of Angeris ready to be introduced to the next generation.

Synopsis:

"Anger is a signal and one worth listening to," writes Dr. Harriet Lerner, in her renowned classic that has transformed the lives of millions of readers.While anger deserves our attention and respect, women still learn to silence our anger, to deny it entirely, or to vent it in a way that leaves us feeling helpless and powerless. In this engaging and eminently wise book, Dr. Lerner teaches women to identify the true sources of our anger and to use anger as a powerful vehicle for creating lasting change.

Synopsis:

The author of "The Dance of Deception" moves readers away from silence and ineffective fighting and blame as she explains how relationship patterns operate and how to change one's own steps in the dance.

This is even better than The Dance of Intimacy, which I read first. I highly recommend this to anyone, particularly women, who wants to learn how to deal with anger and intense feelings constructively in relationships. It's also invaluable when it comes to understanding the weird ties that bind people together, and the ways they can cause tension. I would recommend reading this before The Dance of Intimacy, if you can, but both are excellent.
