5.0 out of 5 stars Finding the Gift
The Surprising Purpose of Anger, is indeed surprising! I can only recommend this book, truly a gift. Marshall Rosenberg talks about the mechanisms behind anger, what really causes it. If we can learn to listen empathically, which is the basis of Non-Violent Communication we can refocus and diffuse the anger, which is caused by our own thoughts about any given situation...

3.0 out of 5 stars Didn't do what I was looking for
A very short book that has a good philosophy for dealing with everyday anger, but I was disappointed it does not cover how to handle or harness for good the deep-seated anger that comes from serious abuse or threats to the person, which is what I was looking for.

This book, deals specifically with anger and that's what makes it special when compared to the other NVC books. The examples given by the author are so self-explanatory that we only need to follow him. Fantastic!
