I got this book as part of a 6 month anger-management course I took to better myself in 2005. Four years later, the tools discussed in this book have helped me, my best friend in her marriage of 7 years, my now-ex-husband in HIS new relationship, several OTHER friends in anger filled relationships, AND all of my partners. Look, if an abuser is looking for an excuse to abuse, EVERYTHING will offer him an excuse. This book, other books, etc. He will FIND his excuse if he wants to find one. But THIS book is so stellar becuase it makes the one with the anger issues REALLY take control of their anger. A lot of abusers use the cop out "Well I just lose control" and this book REMINDS all anger sufferers that you do not just "lose control". If your boss or some other important person showed up in the middle of a heated fight, the heated fight would stop, PROVING you have CONTROL over your anger in the right circumstances. And this book teaches you to CONTROL your own anger BEFORE you "lose control". I especially like the "Time Out" strategy and the fact that it's talked about EARLY into the book. It's an easy technique to use, it deflates even the WORST of heated arguments, and it MAKES SENSE when you think of the biology of anger and how it takes TIME for the adrenaline to stop pumping.
This book is a must have. I own like 6 copies now and I pass them out to anyone I know who has a volatile relationship.
