My counselor recommended this book to me in December because I've had major issues all of my life in shutting down mentally when getting angry. If taken to heart, I believe this book can provide some real benefits to Christian men, especially those of us who have never really known how to put anger in it's proper perspective. I say it this way because this is who I am. I have loaned my book to my brother & my sister and I also have purchased the kindle version. Like anything else in life, you are going to get the benefits out of a book only if you are willing to put in the time and effort into implementing it's strategies yourself. Remember folks that we, as individuals, are each responsible for our own actions!
