Publisher's Summary

What is anger?

Why does anger lead many people to aggressive and unhealthy behavior?

Does it have adverse physiological and psychological effects?

Can we term all anger as negative?

Do you feel too irritable or on edge?

Do traffic jams get you angry?

Do your coworkers or boss easily anger you? 

Untreated and uncontrolled anger can have very adverse effects on your physical, mental, and emotional health. It can take a toll on you and the people around you. Anger can also affect your relationships, career, family life, and even your general lifestyle.

In most cases, we suppress anger with the hope that it will not affect us and our relations, but that is not an effective way of dealing with it. You cannot ignore the emotion of rage forever - at one point, it will affect you. It’s best if you recognize it, accept it, and deal with it. Put yourself in a position where anger does not run your life. Learn how to use the energy it gives in positively.

This audiobook will help you to understand anger, guide you to identify your triggers of anger, and learn how to manage it. Managing anger can be very complicated if one does not have the right guidelines. To that end, this audiobook uses a simple language to explain the helpful and unhelpful forms of anger. It also describes the steps that you can use to manage it. You will find:

  • The definition of anger;
  • An expression of anger;
  • Understanding anger and smart anger;
  • The causes, signs, and symptoms of anger;
  • What is unmanaged anger;
  • The cost of anger;
  • Anger and mental health;
  • The choice to manage anger;
  • Steps to managing anger effectively;
  • Anger management and communication;
  • Selecting a good anger management program;
  • The use of anger management techniques;
  • Relapses and medication.

My husband listen this book

My husband listen this book because at times he had absolutely no patience with me or my four year old daughter. He didn't feel that the way he was reacting to the situations was wrong but it ahead actually started to put a huge stress on the relationship with him and our daughter.

This was written in a manner

This was written in a manner and in details that hit me directly. With every section I grew a better understanding of myself and my relationship with anger. I wouldn't guarantee that it will help everyone, but it has helped me, and given me the tools to continue to help myself.

This was written in a manner and in details that hit me directly. With every section I grew a better understanding of myself and my relationship with anger. I wouldn't guarantee that it will help everyone, but it has helped me. It may be very tough but it really helps to open up to them and just tell them everything. It has definitely brought us closer together!

Wasn't heavy and was written to make for a smooth listen. Exercises we're engaging but not overpowering. A great start to getting anger and emotions under control.

Narrator

Wow I’ve never heard or had to listen to someone so boring in my whole life, great book and great tips, but the narrator is a bore and makes it hard to get through!

Not helpful. 13 steps? Where?

Voice of reader sounds like a computer, which is slightly odd, with quite a few mispronunciations, & pauses in seemingly incorrect places, which ironically is kind of irritating.
The content is seemingly common sense, & the lack of refences, to back up statements, makes this feel less evidence-based & more like some guy's opinion.
Not actually helpful in addressing the issue, rather points out the obvious & advises seeking help elsewhere. [13 steps? Sorry, where?]
A couple of interesting points raised then just dropped, e.g. feelings underlying anger, PTSD, etc. but then just dropped.
Not worth your time.
