Manage My Emotions: What I Wish I'd Learned in School about Anger, Fear, and Love by Kenneth Martz is a book on managing emotions and not letting them rule our lives. The book offers an insight into how our emotions can play with our lives and how we can gain back control if we pay attention. The author explains what emotions are, the process of emotional change, how we can manage our emotions, and how they affect almost every aspect of our life. The author eloquently describes our emotions and how we can easily balance them so that they don't become a hindrance to our social and personal life. With just a little bit of conscious emotional management, we can take back control and live our lives to the fullest.
Manage My Emotions is an educational and very positive self-help book. I am amazed at the way the author explains emotions in such an uncomplicated yet easy to digest fashion. Dr. Kenneth Martz presents a clear, concise, and impressive theory that is useful for readers. From getting a better grip on our emotions in any given situation to understanding how our emotions affect our daily lives, the author not only gives us the information to gain control but also motivates readers to anticipate the change. The exercises he suggests are doable in a real-life scenario and not impossible. This book promises a clear and happy mind, and I highly recommend it to anyone who wishes to achieve it.

Manage My Emotions: What I Wish I'd Learned in School about Anger, Fear and Love by Dr. Kenneth Martz is a book written by a professional. Dr. Martz is a qualified psychologist with 25 years' experience. Indeed, as Dr. Martz shares his experience in the book, the breadth, and depth of his experience in managing emotion come through clearly. It is demonstrated in the 4-part discussion on emotion: (1) Introduction to Emotion, (2) The Changing Process, (3) Managing Specific Emotions, and (4) Emotions Applications. There are many questions that help readers to understand and reflect on their emotions. There are also exercises that enable readers to actually feel their emotions. The book is well written, and the content is presented rationally (and not emotionally)!
How much better life will be if we can manage our emotions so that we become masters of and not slaves to our emotions. Manage My Emotions by Dr. Kenneth Martz definitely helps readers to become masters of their emotions. There are many suggestions throughout the book on how we can manage our emotions. I particularly like the suggestion that we should live with an awareness of our emotions and not on autopilot as awareness alone in healing. The book also shares many tools which we can use to cope with our emotions. For example, to cope with anger, there are tools such as breathing, identifying the underlying beliefs/expectations, physical exercise, and journaling. To top it off, the book doesn't just discuss the applications of emotions in motivation, communication, relationships, and the workplace, but also in politics - what a pleasant surprise! A highly recommended read for those who are looking for ways to manage their emotions better!

The author was able to come up with a very good and importat thing to discuss in this book especialy that we are dealing such a hard time with the Covid-19 pandemic situaton these days. The author is a licensed psychologist and what he pointed out in this book makes so much sense to me. If you want a sensible self-help book that would inspire you and take life positively, I recommend this.
There are some helpful suggestions on the importance of being aware vs. spending our lives “on autopilot.” I recommend Chapter 23 about emotions and culture. The concept of worldview is important to understand. Often our reaction to a situation is based on beliefs we have learned as children and never challenged.
The book highlights the importance of being aware – several tools are recommended. I would have liked to see information about Levels of Consciousness. This topic might fit in the discussion about Denial. According the Dr. David R. Hawkins, if your Level of Consciousness is low (anger, grief, guilt, shame) your ability to understand higher levels (acceptance, reason, love) is very limited. Dr. Hawkins has several very interesting books on this topic.
In Chapter 22 there are several helpful suggestions if you are struggling with an addiction. The author mentions the “12-step tradition” in this section, but does not elaborate. I would have liked to see more information about this approach. The 12-Step philosophy was initially pioneered by Alcoholics Anonymous. Besides the tools suggested in this book, you may want to learn about Step 1 and Step 2 of the 12-Step Program. In Chapter 16 (Respect and Grief) the author does have a brief comment about Spirituality/Religion. Another helpful resource is a book by Ravi Zacharias, "Can Man Live without God".
You have choices, choose to live. “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control". (The Bible - Galatians 5:22-23)
Questions lead to identify and understand their own emotions and exercises to emotional change.
This quote from the book can summarize the approach: Emotional management is the skill of balancing them so we can learn the lessons they teach, prevent unnecessary challenges, and shift emotions to a more pleasurable balance.
Management of emotions is a more advanced level than their understanding as they require more energy. But this is the only way to avoid and change painful emotions. The book covers subtle details.
However, I dislike the proposal to use specialized approaches such as yoga, mantra, acupuncture, Tai Chi, Ayurveda, or native healing, as these are rather spiritual and belief systems and techniques not proven scientifically. They can (and actually often did) cause more damage than good to some people.
