Publisher's Summary

Thich Nhat Hanh is a holy man, for he is humble and devout. He is a scholar of immense intellectual capacity. His ideas for peace, if applied, would build a monument to ecumenism, to world brotherhood, to humanity' Martin Luther King, Jr, in Nobel Peace Prize nomination It was under the bodhi tree in India 2500 years ago that Buddha achieved the insight that three states of mind were the source of all our unhappiness: ignorance, obsessive desire and anger. All are equally difficult to control but, in one instant of anger, lives can be ruined, and our spiritual development can be destroyed. Twenty-five centuries after the Buddha's insight, medical science tells us that the Buddha was right: anger can also ruin our health. It is one of the most powerful emotions and one of the most difficult to change. Thich Nhat Hanh offers a fresh perspective on taking care of our anger as we would take care of a baby crying - picking it up, talking quietly to it, probing for what is making the baby cry. Laced with stories and techniques, Anger offers a wise and loving look at transforming this difficult emotion into peace and for bringing harmony and healing to all the areas and relationships in our lives that have been affected by anger.

Excellent and Practical

I listened to Thich Nhat Hahn's words as I struggled with my fury about a personal situation. I had been angry and said and done things I felt ashemed about. As I listened compassion grew in me and a sense of both control and accountablilty. I was able to understand where the anger came from and to make sense of it. By doing so I was able to begin to 'cool the flames' as it were. I would recommend this book to anyone who has been angry and feels horrible about it. It is not a self excusing squirmiing out of responsibility but instead encourages a reflective hard look at oneself, a forgiveness and a way to start again.

Best book for Understanding Our Anger

Would you consider the audio edition of Anger to be better than the print version?

If we are angry person, this is a book that has to be listen to as many times we could while travelling or doing house hold works.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Anger?

Argument with wife or Mother in law

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It did make me emotional as the part of the book was similar to my life experience.

Any additional comments?

Again BEST BOOK for ANGRY people... OR People who can easily triggered to get anger/
