Publisher's Summary

Never Get Angry Again, by New York Times and internationally best-selling author David J. Lieberman, is a comprehensive, holistic look at the underlying emotional, physical, and spiritual causes of anger and a practical guide to what the listener can do to gain perspective.

David J. Lieberman understands that a change in perspective is all that is needed to help keep from flying off the handle. In Never Get Angry Again, he reveals how to see anger through a comprehensive, holistic lens, illuminates the underlying emotional, spiritual, and physical components of anger, and gives listeners simple, practical tools to snuff out anger before it even occurs.

Take a deep breath and count to 10. Meditate. Visualize your happy place. You've probably heard all of these anger management techniques and more from friends, family, and experts, but somehow they miss the mark when it comes to coping with the complex emotion of anger.

Let's face it: If anger-management techniques were effective, you wouldn't be listening to this audiobook. These clumsy attempts to maintain calmness are usually futile and sometimes emotionally draining. The fact is, either something bothers us (causing anxiety, frustration, or anger), or it doesn't. A state of calm is better accomplished by not becoming agitated in the first place. When we fight the urge to blow up or melt down, we fight against our own nature.

Principles on how to lead an authentic life.

This is more a book about how to lead an authentic, meaningful, happy, fulfilling life, in accordance with the dictates of our conscience so that anger never arises at all. It covers a diverse range of principles and useful practices along this line. There are some useful anger management techniques as well. Be warned that the author does assume a belief in God and the soul but there is still some very useful material if this is an issue for you. Although the audiobook was narrated very well, there is so much material here that it would also be helpful to get a printed copy of the book.

Very Worthwhile Listen

I don’t know what happened to the author between writing “How to Get Anyone to do Anything” and this book, but I’m glad for it. From the outset, he goes far deeper and more introspective than his original titles. Instead of manipulating other people or situations, the author asks of to take personal responsibility for how we feel and the honest circumstances causing those feelings. Then he provides a rich assortment of tested strategies for resolving (not managing) our anger.

The best book ever!

It has made me reassess how I approached things in life. Love this book. Will listen to it again when I feel I am derailing. “Expect nothing, accept / appreciate everything.” It’s powerful.

Lots of God and Shakespeare talk

Needs real life examples to relate to, not story book examples. Get rid of god and Shakespeare and talk about actual real life stand points in today's world.

God is mentioned far too much

God god I was finding the book good until god was bought in and then every other chapter god was mentioned. Not everyone believes in god

Starts off brilliantly, but then God somehow sneaks into it

There should be a warning when Christianity is going to be shoved down ones throat. Such a shame because the words before the God part were great, but now I don’t trust the authors judgement.
