"Shoshanna extends an empty and richly filled hand, offering both the sublime and the practical", Publishers Weekly once noted of Brenda Shoshanna, PhD. Now Shoshanna unites the sublime and the practical once again, this time to show us how to rid ourselves of anger and become immune to its toxic effects in a new 30-day program called The Anger Diet.
Road rage, school shootings, workplace violence, domestic abuse, drug addiction, and even the national obesity epidemic are manifestations of an overarching problem gripping our society: anger.
Other books about anger are on the market, but this is the first and only diet from anger: a practical, step-by-step, 30-day program designed to help listeners cleanse their lives of the toxic effects of anger. As Dr. Shoshanna points out, it's one thing to have an intellectual understanding of what is harmful. It's something else to know how to actually get rid of anger in your life.
The Anger Diet is the book that bridges the gap between intellectual understanding and practical action. The practical actions correspond to the 24 forms of anger, many of which are hidden; each form is identified and addressed in its own chapter. Each day listeners are asked to give up one form of anger and are given a replacement for it. One chapter per day, one day at a time, listeners will learn how to loosen anger's hold on their lives and gain greater happiness, health, and peace.

This is a book about anger and all of its manifestations, such as passive aggression, depression, and being the victim. I was surprised not only about how many forms of anger there are, but how many I have experienced personally or are experiencing right now. Dr. Shoshanna's lessons are simple and can be painful when you go through the work. But without this pain and hard soul-searching work, you won't heal your inner anger and let it go. I wish I had read this book years ago. I wish that if I had, I'd have been receptive enough to do the lessons. I'm sharing some of the lessons with my pre-teen son, so that he will have the foundation to recognize his anger and have proper tools to deal with it. Great book! Do the lessons slowly and often!
It broke down anger and seemed to be good at first for understanding then every emotion seemed to be steeped in an underlying anger. I stopped reading it.
