Format: Paperback
This book outlines a very simple model of why we get angry and why that anger can be either unhealthy or healthy (yes, its OK to be angry!). The model is simple to understand and works for me. The style of the book is to repeat each element of the model over a range of examples and points. At first I found this a bit irritating, but by the end of the book I had memorised the model and its applications. I can now intepret my anger on-the-fly, which is quite a remarkable achievement for a book after one read. Well worth a read if you are trying to understand your own anger.

A complete waste of time. I have the same anger issues as most people and thought this would give me a few ideas/tips on how to control my emotions better......this book did not help at all.....the pathetic examples given by the author were so annoying I had to constantly remind myself of his qualifications...I kept jumping a few pages ahead to see if things improved...they got worse....I will never read any more of his books....he is rubbish...

Format: Paperback
It's quite an achievement - a book on anger management that goes beyond being a poor book and actually makes you angry when you read it.Ironic. But it really is that poor.

Like many fathers of a teenage son I'd like some insight into what's happening when we go 'head-head' for the umpteenth time. I know it's all part of the growing up process (for both of us), but it would help if we could minimise the spats. This book did not help at all.

Firstly it's very difficult to understand what is being said, the language is dressed up to sound intellectual. It takes a lot of effort to translate it into simple english; great for the authors ego and professional standing no doubt. But a real barrier to getting something out of the book. I persevered.

Mistakenly as it turned out. In practice the author merely describes what is happening, not what to do about it. The book is 98 pages long, it's not until page 86 that you get gem's like 'pinch yourself until the urge goes away' as a way of coping with anger. Or 'scream STOP to yourself internally'. Hardly psychological rocket science, my gran could have done better.

I read the book in one evening, at first poring over each difficult sentence to get its essence. Then I started scanning things, eventually realising that much of the book repeats itself tediously (as implied in the previous review above). Finally I read the section titles only. All along my frustration was growing, eventually passing through anger to laughter. My wife found the whole process very amusing.

A good use of an evening and a few pounds? Most definitiely not, go to the pub and have a pint or two instead, far more effective.
