Publisher's Summary

Anger Management: How to Take Control of Your Anger, Develop Self Control, and Live a Happier Life

If you want to live a more successful, healthier, and more enjoyable life, you have to learn how to overcome negative emotions.

Strong and raw emotions like anger often rob us of the joy we could otherwise be enjoying. Anger burns - not just emotionally, but psychologically and physically as well.

Sadly, most people hang on to their anger or try to handle it in less than optimal ways. No wonder too many people are struggling with careers and relationships that are not as successful or as happy as they could be.

This book steps you through the process of highly effective thinking processes that can defuse and re-channel your anger. Unlike the typical anger self-help book, this book uses a step-by-step experience-based approach.

This book helps you deal with your anger issues by starting at the beginning how you choose to judge the stimuli or feedback you are receiving from the world. 

From this strong foundation, you will be able to handle situations without getting angry, or if you have no choice but to respond with anger, you will be able to do it positively.

Yes, there is such a thing as positive anger. By channeling this powerful emotion to more productive releases, you not only get out from under the risk of reacting in the worst way possible, you also achieve great progress in other areas of your life.

Listen to this book to finally make anger work for you instead of against you!

Jeremy Basko narrated this book by Bill Andrews well. At first, I wasn’t sure if I was going to like it; however, the information quickly captivated me. Hence, I’m very grateful for this book and plan to acquire more books by Bill Andrews. I recommend this book.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

a good intro

* I received a copy of this in return for an honest review. *

There comes a time in every middle-aged man's life when he stops returning Little Tim Nextdoor's ball, when everyone needs to just get off his lawn, and when he ought to read these anger management books. For Old Man Koivu, the time is nigh...nay, now!

The problem for me is that these "reduce stress", "tone down tension," and "alleviate anger" books make me angry. So many of them are about mediation and such, which isn't bad, but they often try to set a mood that I find loopy and just plain silly. I don't want to do sloth aerobics to the sounds of whales making love while I rub essential oils on my inner child.

Luckily, Bill Andrews' slim book doesn't suggest any of that. He gives a few straight-forward, practical suggestions on dealing with the rise of anger in your life. He intentionally simplifies the techniques, demystifying psychologist's practices, to give the reader the basics. There are no clinical studies cited and I don't believe Andrews' qualifications are ever mentioned. The suggested methods of reducing anger are not ground breaking. The slimness of the volume means none of the various facets of the subject is dealt with in great depth. A quarter of the audiobook is devoted to promoting Andrews' other books. Having said all that, you still get some helpful suggestions. Calling this an "introduction to..." the topic would be more accurate, because I would recommend it as a first-step book.

I received my audiobook copy from the narrator Jeremy Basko through a site called Audio Boom. Basko's work on this is solid. His pacing and the tenor of his voice fit the topic.

Great narration, awful tips

I received a free copy of this book and exchange for an unbiased review. unfortunately there's really nothing you can read in this book that you could not read just by googling anger management tips, it really adds nothing to the genre.

This is a practical book on anger management.

This is a practical book on anger management. The exercises were properly balanced. I only wish there were follow up services or online group meetings to help with putting some of the material into practice.

Given me the tools to continue to help myself.

This was explained 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.

Really a great audiobook!

It's doesn't tell you that anger is bad, it just helps you deal with how you react to it. It has a handful of her previous clients and uses their stories as apart of the lessons. It helps to normalize the feelings you have and it makes me feel like I'm not alone I'm feeling this way.
