"This is an excellent book for understanding and coping with the various scenarios that spark our anger. Gary Chapman's decision to read his own work, based on stories gleaned from his years of individual and couples counseling, is a strong one because it lends an intimate tone to this sensitive subject. Chapman’s warm voice and use of colloquial expression make listeners feel that they could be sitting down with the good doctor himself. Chapman artfully sheds his reputation as an international author and speaker and allows listeners to connect with him and with the startling fact that anger, perhaps even more than love, is a universal human emotion."

INCLUDES A PERSONAL ANGER ASSESSMENT designed to help you see hose you manage anger.
Are you handling your anger, or is your anger handling you?
Life is full of frustrations-some big, some little. And while you might not be ready to blow a gasket, it's easy to get angry in the wake of rejection, hurt, or embarrassment-and anger can have a really tight grip. ¿ ¿
In Anger: Taming a Powerful Emotion, Dr. Gary Chapman offers helpful (and sometimes surprising) insights into why you get angry and what you can do about it. Using real-life examples of transformed lives and relationships, Chapman explains how to:
- Recognize the difference between "bad" and "good" anger
- Use anger to motivate you toward positive change
- Release long-simmering resentment
- Teach others (like your children) how to deal with anger
Anger is a reality of life, but it doesn't have to control our lives. Learn how to handle anger and use it for good.
Includes reflection questions in each chapter and a 13-session discussion guide that's perfect for small groups, workplace studies, and book clubs.
