"A good book...practical and down to earth...it will prove quite helpful to a great many readers."
—Albert Ellis, Ph.D., founder of rational emotive behavior therapy, and author of A New Guide to Rational Living
“The latest edition of When Anger Hurts is at the cutting edge of recent work on anger. The work on emergency anger control and the costs of anger is an important contribution to the literature. The new presentations on creating an anger coping plan and providing anger inoculation techniques add substantially to the armamentarium of individuals dealing with this problem.”
—Aaron T. Beck, MD, professor of psychiatry, University of Pennsylvania, founder and director of the Beck Institute for Cognitive Therapy and Research, and author, Love is Never Enough and Prisoners of Hate
“The authors have done an excellent job in revising an already excellent book. They have integrated new research topics, such as addressing anger when driving. McKay and collegues provide a wealth of practical strategies fo ranger management and making self-directed change. User friendly, simply and clearly written, without professional jargon, the book is a delight to read and should be very useful to clinician and lay person alike.”

Read it no matter if you think you have anger issues or not.
I decided I needed to change my apporach to life so my children did not follow my path. I no longer feel angry but am often perceived as such by language and mannerisms that are habitual. This book explains why anger is harmful to you and those around you. It explains how anger alienates its victim and perpetuates more anger. It dispels the notion that venting is cathartic. It provides specific examples, phrases and exercises that can be incorporated everyday life to practice. This book provides affirmation of concepts I had come to myself. The concepts and tools provided aide in continuous progress in adopting skills for positive communication which achieves far more than angry/negative means.
Understanding and incorporating the concepts and tools provided within this book provides the reader internal, personal and professional gains almost immediately. "Non-Violent Communication" by the same author is also excellent supplemental reading.
