Publisher's Summary

Do you find yourself:

  • Becoming so angry you have trouble thinking?
  • Acting impulsively during angry outbursts?
  • Getting so mad that you feel out of control of your actions?

If these strong, sudden bursts of anger sound all too familiar, you know the impact they have over your life. Over time, these responses can actually hard-wire our brains to respond angrily in situations that normally wouldn't cause us to lose our cool. These anger pathways in the brain can eventually disrupt your work, strain your relationships, and even damage your health.

Written by anger management expert Ronald Potter-Efron, Healing the Angry Brain can help you short-circuit the anger cycle and learn to calmly handle even the most stressful interactions. You will learn which areas of your brain are causing your reactions and discover how to take control of your emotions by rewiring your brain for greater patience and perspective. This fascinating, scientific approach to anger management will yield long-term results, helping you develop greater empathy and put effective conflict resolution skills into practice for years to come.

Too detailed.

This is very detailed and talks a lot about brain anatomy. I was hoping for some useful information to use in my therapy practice. I found myself getting angry at the brain anatomy detail.

Very complicated and complex

Way to much emphasis on technical and complex terms of the brain. Was very hard to follow. Does have some interesting concepts on brain and anger.

Helps but wasn't super engaging

I learned some skills from this but I wouldn't say the book is life changing. There are probably better anger books to read.

Detailed explanations & very helpful understanding

I have seen some reviews claim this book is 'too technical' However I found the biological details very helpful in understanding. The techniques are sound and have made a difference in my own anger management.
