Working on an anger book, perhaps we should not have been surprised when anger showed up in our collaboration. In the process of improving communication between the two of us and developing a process for working together, we stumbled upon the idea of inviting certain qualities into the process and the book itself.

Anger is a normal human emotion. How a person deals with that anger is what, metaphorically, "separates the men from the boys."

Many of our attitudes toward disputes and conflict resolution are formed by our families while we are still children. Anger can range from loud and violent to giving each other the silent treatment to blaming the other person and being judgmental. Such people have never learned healthy attitudes toward conflict and anger.

Everyone has things that they don't like about themselves. Whenever they are mentioned by others, intentionally or unintentionally, they can cause feelings of shame or self-hatred. No one can make you feel like a victim unless you allow it. Whenever your height, weight, ethnicity, etc. are brought up, have a response ready to say to the other person or to yourself, to keep that comment from getting you upset.

There are many unhealthy ways to express anger. Among them are constant whining, throwing temper tantrums, being convinced that you are perfect and the rest of the world is wrong, people who remember every injustice ever perpetrated against them and aren't afraid to throw them in your face, bullying & intimidation and gossiping. The book tells how to deal with each type of person.

Perhaps the cause of your anger is more physical than emotional. Maybe eating too much sugar, or not drinking enough water, will cause a meltdown. The cause of your anger could be lack of sleep, or consuming too much alcohol. The book explores what happens to our bodies in the midst of long-term, unhealthy anger.

For married couples, notice your partner's anger style. Are they passive-aggressive or a shouter? At your next argument, consider: taking a time-out, avoiding hurtful words, admitting your frailties, not interrupting and changing your behavior.

At the end of each chapter, there are exercises and places to write down your thoughts and feelings. This is a practical and easy to read book that can help bring about changes in our relationships, and inside ourselves. This is very much worth the reader's time.

What I like most about this book is its underlying premise that everyone is worthy of respect and no one needs to live under a cloud of anger. Furthermore, these authors express a belief that it's possible to get free of old patterns learned early in life, and not pass them on to others. And they also tell us that it is possible to get rid of, or at least control, physical effects of anger, like overeating or high blood pressure, through these pretty easy techniques they outline. These are very empowering themes and they are presented in an accessible and engaging way in this book.

The writing is supportive, benign, amusing at times, informative, and, I think, very helpful. The book is set up with illustrations and exercises and room for notes ("Mad Pad"). Whether you actually do the exercises or not, I found it interesting and thought-provoking to read them.

The authors provide numerous examples of ways people feel, things they say, and situations in which anger comes up. I could relate to lots of their examples. They give some analysis of each situation, and suggest ways to deal with in a positive and affirming way. I found it engaging and pleasant to read, and I think the simplicity of the language they use makes the suggestions easy to implement.

This reminded me of one of my other favorite books, How to Talk so Kids Will Listen--and Listen so Kids Will Talk, by Adele Faber. These two titles share the basic idea that if you treat yourself and others with respect, you will be treated that way. I would happily recommend both books.

This book should be mandatory reading for leaders of nations! I found this book to be one of the more important offerings of the Self-help genre. It is user friendly, holds your hand like a good friend, and gently opens one's eyes and one's heart to how anger can be one of the most healthy tools in human relationships. It also helped me to understand how this emotion operates in others, and I find myself having more compassion for humanity as a result.

Without a doubt, this is one of the best self-help books I've ever read. Right away it gets down to the nitty-gritty of why people are really angry. This book guides you down paths and shows you things you might not have known that have been fueling your anger.

Although it describes the types of anger and what it does to you and your relationships with others, it is a while before you get to what should be done about it.

The Angerobics workouts at the end of each chaper are thoughtful and down to earth. However, my favorite part of this book is in the last few chapters where it discusses anger at the world. What if you're not angry at one person or small group, but a large organization, or even a government? Even better, what if you are mad at God? The book covers all those points and gives you real world solutions to help you move on with your life.

This is an excellent book for anyone with anger issues, especially those stemming from other problems or losses. I highly recommend this book to anyone wanting to improve him/herself.

In clear easy to understand prose, this book explores anger from every angle, giving many examples, exercises, and suggestions for recognizing one's rage, dealing with it, and transforming it into serenity and compassion. Especially enjoyable and helpful are the wonderful cartoons by one of the co-authors, Peaco Todd. Her colorful drawings and humorous take on the subject provide the perfect accompaniment to this very hot and sensitive subject. Highly recommended.

Are you a parent? Do you commute through obnoxious traffic? Does your mate do inexplicably irritating things on a daily basis? Pick up this fun book and realize that you're not alone AND that there are many positive ways to respond to the inevitable challenges to your daily equilibrium. A great read that's full of insight, humor, and ideas that require some work to implement, but then you can't expect to deal with this subject without some work on your part!
