3.0 out of 5 stars Not the answer to beating anger, but it helps, 3 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Beating Anger: The eight-point plan for coping with rage (Paperback)
If you think you have a problem with anger, the one point plan - get a therapist to help you deal with it. If you want to understand where it comes from, read the book. Understanding your anger will not make it go away by simply reading a book. You don't get feedback on how you are doing from reading.

What is helpful in the book is what it teaches you from the start. To recognize that anger is a very normal, healthy emotion, it is the rage and hostility you let yourself get you that are your problem. It does come handy for understanding what is happening in your head at the times the anger builds up and by reflecting on past outbursts, you can map up when and where in an argument you reverted back to some point of your life that is causing you to be this angry today. I guess you have to read this book to make sense of this. But, the exercises are somewhat unrealistic.The buddy network of quite few people you need to build in order to practice these exercises is unrealistic, in my opinion. This is not how many family members and friends you have in your life, but how many people do you know that would be willing to read this book for you, so they can understand their role in being your anger buddy, in order to then be still willing and able to help you deal with your rage at random 11pm on their relaxing Wednesday night(again and again...and again).
