Publisher's Summary

A revised and updated edition of the popular self-help book for men that addresses contemporary issues and how they impact the way men deal with anger

Men tend to express their anger differently than women do. Research shows men are often more violent and less willing to confront and deal with their emotions than women. Written by a psychologist who specializes in the treatment of male rage, Beyond Anger shows the angry - and miserable - man how to change his life and relationships for the better. 

This book helps men understand their anger by explaining what the specific symptoms of chronic anger are and by showing angry men how their actions negatively affect family, friends, and coworkers. It helps men control violent feelings by using simple exercises - developed especially for men - to identify when and why anger occurs and by helping them form new habits to prevent anger before it starts. Women, too, will learn essential strategies for understanding and helping the angry men in their lives. 

Beyond Anger is honest, tough, and real. In this revised edition, Harbin will update references throughout and discuss new topics such as the role of the internet and social media in fueling anger and how to protect yourself against these pitfalls, as well as a discussion on anger and aging, the political landscape and anger, PTSD, a brand-new section on preventing relapse into anger, and many other relevant, timely topics. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Eye Opener

I have a hard time sitting down and reading so I listened to the audiobook. This is a very good book for all men as it really clarifys whether or not you are an "angry man". Most of my anger stems from my upbringing and how my father acted. I encourage you to read this book if you are considering the possibly that your are angry.

A great resource in understanding Anger.

I wasn't sure what this audio book had in store, but I was happy I had listened to it. It covers a wide variety of anger issues from having small anger issues to being a full blown rageaholic. I didn't realize how much anger I had built up inside over the years. Our mind does a very good job of masking problems that are hard to face head on. I think that everyone should listen/read this book for we all come in contact with angry people on a daily basis. Some of my anger I felt was justifiable, but soon found out that I was wrong. The story was well narrated and flowed consistently with great examples. I think this book can help parents or people who have to live or work with angry people. There are a few people in my life that I wish were more opened minded to material such as this. I would recommend this book to anyone that is willing to learn about anger. I think the wisdom and stories in this book can help a large variety of people. We should all be open minded to personal growth and this book has helped me in that aspect. Thank you and take care.

I’ve read 5 books on Anger Management ....

I’ve read 5 books on Anger Management and this was the best out of 5! Highly recommended, however the only flaw of this Audible book is the narrator- he sounds like he’s angry himself.

Great read for anybody.

This book is great for anybody b/c it explains anger on a different level. If you suffer from uncontrollable anger like myself then I definitely suggest this book for you! It’s also good for people w/o anger issues but may need help in understanding a loved ones anger problems.

chapter 8 - 17 glitch & stop.

it's a great book from what I've been able to finish. it won't play chapters 8 through 17 for some reason. it actually forces the app to close entirely. audible hasn't tried to fix the problem on their end.

Recommended

After the first two chapters, I was already well on the way to recovery from verbal abuse to others. It was a real eye opener to see what was classed as what people like me think as normal and abnormal behaviour, this book also covers a range of situations from partners, children, friends, family, work situations and childhood upbringings to really widen the range of audience. If I could meet this Author, I’d thank him for changing my outlook on anger, and in turn, my life and future.
So yeah, I recommend it.
