This review is from: Beating Anger: The eight-point plan for coping with rage (Paperback)
This book is totally life transforming.
I would strongly recommend this book to anyone interested in the practicalities of dealing with one's own or a loved one's stress, anger or rage.
The author, Mike Fisher, does away with the patronising psychobabble and jargon, normally associated with US style 'self-improvement' books.
Instead, he delivers a reassuringly user-friendly step-by-step guide, in accessible everyday language, on how to manage - and harness positively - the every day issues that cause us to feel stressed / frustrated / powerless.
Mike starts from the refreshing premise that the only thing that makes us angry is our self! The rest of the book builds on this robust theory - and teaches us to take personal responsibility and ownership of our own feelings and emotions. He then suggests techniques how to communicate 'clean / healthy' anger to the world about us in a positive non-confrontational manner. Very empowering!
I hope this book helps you as much as it has done me.
