"Thich Nhat Hanh is a holy man, for he is humble and devout. He is a scholar of immense intellectual capacity. His ideas for peace if applied, would build a monument of ecumenism, to world brotherhood, to humanity." —Martin Luther King, Jr.
"He shows us the connection between personal, inner peace, and peace on earth." —His Holiness The Dalai Lama
"Hanh doesn't limit his task to discussing anger between families and friends; he also deals with anger between citizens and governments. That expansive vision is not surprising (Hanh, after all, is a Nobel Peace Prize nominee) but it is refreshing, lifting this book out of the self-absorbed, self-help pile." —Publishers Weekly
"Reminding us that small spiritual matters are really large spiritual matters, the author offers wisdom and serenity to comfort readers as they work through anger to a place of 'being peace.'" —Library Journal

I have anger against me and I am not in a relationship
The lessons repeat throughout the book, and essentially boil down to the Buddhist idea of mindfulness; to pay attention to things, including yourself. If you're angry, stop what you're doing and figure out why. There is rarely anything more important than *stopping* when you find yourself angry. Practicing not being angry, over time, makes it much easier to not be angry, and so on.
As far as "easy to read", many self help books - heck, many books of many genres - seem to make the text more difficult, to make the author sound more important. This doesn't make that pretense, at all. It feels like an incredibly well written book report, written by the world's most enlightened fifth grader. It makes for an easy conversant tone, and a quick read, and a quick re-read.
For some people, the lessons and stories in the book might be very obvious. For others out here, it helps to read it once. If you've had problems with anger, if you have two to four hours to read through this, and trying to improve yourself is worth $10 to you, this book is certainly worth a shot.
