I read this book over 10 years ago and have happily employed the wisdom and techniques found in it ever since.I came online to see if it might still be available to give as a gift to someone who recently demolished his computer - with a baseball bat!I'm thrilled to see that it's still in print. It deserves a wide reading (even after all this time!)This is very positive, constructive and USEFUL view of our God-given gift of anger. Anger that, used wisely and with understanding, can enhance and protect our lives. Or - used automatically and without awareness or comprehension - can ruin everything we love.Thank you to Mr. Warren for this nurturing gift to our rage-prone society.Read it, think about it, practice it and do it - you'll be a different person!
This is a self-help book that empowers you with practical example to truly help yourself, without any goody-two-shoes feeling, but with actionable steps and insights.
I found this book to be an excellent help in what to do with your anger. I can and do recommend to everybody who feels that anger is impacting in their lives negatively.
Towards the end, the content is more christian-focussed, but whether you want to agree with that or not, the main part of the book is extremely helpful and not religion based.
This book changed and improved my life, however, reading some of the other opinions, I would agree that if somebody suffers from depression or other mental illnesses, this book may not apply as much, as it is more geared towards a person who in mentally healthy and therefore has the capacity to control their feelings and actions to a greater extend than those suffering from mental illness or other medical problems.
This is a marvelous read.Dr. Clark has made a complex problem easy to understand, with the solution to anger problems easily accessible.Everyone should read this book. Everyone. Even people who do not believe they have a problem.
As someone that let anger control them and being very explosive at times! I knew that something had to be done or I would end up in Jail or worse! I find that i have found out what my triggers are and use those triggers as a response to do something positive and constructive rather then the old me of blowing up and hurting even the innocent bystander!
This makes a great gift for friends and relatives that may suffer from anger mismanagement!
Dealing with anger is a process that takes time and effort and if you are ready to change how you deal with this emotion then this book is a great starting point! The book is out of print but there are many used copies around!
