I had justified my anger for years, showing frustration with my kids and frequently yelling at them. I didn't realize what I was doing to them. Now I know. I also know what I have done to my wife. It is a non nonsense book that puts it on the line and gives you hope of a better life. Well worth the money; less than 15 minutes with a therapist.

If you feel really !*@! all the time as a result of being Constantly "jangled" after an angry outburst. This is the book for you. It gets straight to the point. To the really harsh realities of what out of control anger can do . Its practical,easily readable and cuts no punches. I feel the very best self help book I have read on anger. It can only take your life forward in a positive way if you follow its advice.

My husband is a rageaholic and has been in need of help for a long time. He "happened upon" this book in the bookstore and it has been a Godsend. It has been the only glimmer of hope in relation to his problem. in years. I have read the book, and it was as though the author lived in my home. I felt so validated by the book. I don't think anyone has ever made me feel so "not crazy". I cannot explain the power and freedom that I have felt since I read it. If you are reading these reviews, there is probably a problem.......get the book!

If you are reading this review, chances are that you are like me, someone who gets really angry once in a while (and find it difficult to control the things you say or do) or maybe you live with someone with an anger problem. I have to say: this book will help.

I thought I was a calm person and that I respected people. I could not understand why I lost many friends and almost lost my job. I used violent communication and angry body language, but I was not aware of it. It was one of my angry outbursts at work that made me realize this behaviour was not acceptable and that I needed help.

Straight to the point:
1- This book helps you understand why you get angry
2- It teaches techniques to help you control yourself
3- It gives examples of good communication. What to say, and most importantly, what not to say when angry
4- And teaches you techniques to calm yourself down and to change your self-talk
5- There is also a section especially written for people who live with an angry person.

This book also explains how to find out what created the anger in the first place.
The importance to let the past go and how to do it.
Makes you understand why people around you may think you are angry all the time. It can be something you are not aware of, like body language, voice entonation and choice of words.
Makes you understand how the way you talk to yourself affects your behaviour.

In addition the author recommends a couple of books from other authors; things that might offer extra help, for example relaxation techniques and assertive/non-violent communication.

I chose this book based on the good reviews and because the title said it was en emergency guide to anger control. I don't regret my choice. This book helped me. It saved me my job and my relationship. Therefore I recommend it. I hope it will do the same for you.

Format: Paperback
My problem was that i was just not consious of how much anger I was carrying around and what it was doing to me and the people in my life, especially those that I loved the most. When I first read the book, I saw my life unfold before my eyes. It was shocking to say the least. I read the entire thing in one night. Then I read it again and and a third time just to make sure I understood everything. I did what it told me and my life has changed because of it. I now have the ability to be conscious of my anger and have learned to let it go. Consequently, I have more patience, more energy, less stress and I can finally feel happiness, compassion and love. I cannot say enough good things about this book. I would highly recommend it for anyone who thinks that they may have a problem with anger. Even people who don't think they have an anger problem may learn something about themselves by reading this book. It has changed my life for the better. Thank you Ron.

I saw this book next to another book by the same author and felt compelled to look at it more closely. The introduction that I read was clear and concise. The author gave me the impression he wasn't going to take any *#$# from anyone who had the courage to admit they have a serious anger problem. I liked that. It was enough for me to buy it -- not because I'm an angry person, i.e., someone who is "angry all the time" (e.g., a rageaholic), but because it provided unusually clear guidelines for getting to the sources of anger and doing something about them. I know what's it like to experience anger (some don't). Sometimes it feels good, but other times it feels like &$#*. Sometimes it lingers, but other times, it stays with me longer than I would like. I was curious to see where I stood with respect to someone who is "angry all the time". This remarkable (and strangely humorous) book is divided into two parts: understanding anger and taking action to deal with it -- not to eliminate it from your life -- but to control it and use it well. I must admit, I like that concept of using your anger well. Everyone within reason (and I do mean everyone) could learn to use their anger well AND be consciously aware of what that means (I would also strongly recommend Letting Go of Anger by Pat and Ron Potter-Efron). This book, Angry All The Time, could be read by a lot of people. You might feel that you are habitually sneaky with your anger or feel unduly paranoid about the world. You might feel that you frequently get angry for no apparent reason or get angry a lot because you feel ashamed. You might feel that you become deliberately angry to always get your way or enjoy the rush of pleasure that comes with raging at the top of your lungs.Read more ›
