No one likes to admit they have an anger issue. The truth is, in the world we live in today, their is anger all around us. I think that the stigma of anger is much like that of drug abuse, alcohol abuse, AIDS or any other "socially unacceptable" life trait. It is not something that we talk about or accept. Dr Gentry shows in this book how even a small amount of anger can take over your life if you let it. His easy steps that makes sense allow people to feel like they are normal. You don't have to be an angry person to read this book. It is based on practical life circumstances and I have found that it has helped me in not only a professional capacity in dealing with the general public, but those I work with, my spouse and frustration about the world we live in. I recommend this book to anyone who can be honest enough to admit that there is anger in every life and would like to deal with it through positive step-by-step applications.

Really good book. Very helpful, although some of the sections don't pertain to me at all. However, I realize author has to cover a general and wide spectrum of lifestyles, living arrangements and situations, so I give this book an A-. It actually has suggestions and recommendations that most people would be able to apply on a daily basis.

A good book by someone with an intelligent and nuanced understanding of anger. If you plan to buy only one book on anger this is a good one.

I bought this book because I have an anger problem and my spouse has an anger problem. This book helped me to recognize that I have a significant challenge with anger management and it has given me tactics to deal with my anger problem, as well as, how to cope and diffuse my spouses anger problem. In fact, my spouse has recognized my progress in managing my own anger and has read a few chapters of the book too. He actually admitted he suffers from anger, which he used to deny. That's amazing!

I read many chapters of the book and when I feel angry, I open it up on my smart phone, pick a random chapter that sounds interesting, and learn something new about managing my anger and ultimately leading a happier life.

When I read "try telling someone in the middle of a rage to count to 10", I knew the author understood that a rage isn't something you tackle while you're having one, but something to tackle BEFORE hand. The author writes well and doesn't make someone with anger issues feel like a bad person, but rather someone who needs to deal with their issues and make changes to prevent future outbursts. Well written.
