Format: Hardcover
The authors present both an overall framework for controlling anger and a multitude of specific techniques you can use. This very practical book is written in a much more modern style than most of Ellis' previous books. If you want results and are willing to work for them, order this book--and start working. These methods work!

Format: Paperback
In order to take advantage of this book, you need to focus on the thoughts creating anger. That's the whole clue. The book won't tell you what to do with your emotions or feeling of anger because the whole point is thoughts create feelings, so change your thoughts and your feelings will also change by default. How do you change your thoughts? Read the book and you'll find out.

I purchased this book to be used in a paper I was writing for school only to find myself sucked into it and realizing how easy it is for anger to become the primary reaction. I wish these types of book were available in schools.

This type of self help can be used in all areas of our lives. It helped me take control of how I feel and how I express my feeling. If you get angry or depressed, these these techniques will help.

It has a lot of good stuff you can use. I used it with teenagers in counseling. Obviously it is REBT, so you have to be at least CBT to appreciate it. Personally, I love Ellis, I have studied at his institute, and always find his teaching incredibly useful.

A little hard to follow but has a great deal of very useful information. There seems to be a lot of filler fluff but I still would recommend it to anyone looking to help control their anger.
