Publisher's Summary

Anger is a very strong emotion. If you know how to control it, there can actually be times when it is useful. But most of the time it will injure you and hurt others. You have worked hard to create a life for yourself. It's not perfect, but it is certainly substantial, has meaning to you, and it has not come without sacrifice and great effort. The thought of losing it all is frightening! So beware, the most likely threat to all you have accomplished is your anger. Countless people ruin their lives because of anger. There is a large body of scientific research that shows a direct link between anger and relationship breakdown, as well as physical and mental illness. Anger is perhaps the greatest menaces to our well-being. Yet, unlike many other threats, it is easily preventable. And, because anger is preventable, the "tragedies" caused by anger are that much greater. After you have eliminated "anger," you can go on to create loving and long lasting relationships.

Our Wisdom Scientific Self-therapy audio programs are not "audiobooks", "lectures", collections of "positive affirmations", or like anything you have used before. These programs are deliberately designed to be repetitive. Do not expect them to entertain. Do expect them to up-grade your quality of life, making you happier and your relationships more successful. We have developed what we believe to be the most effective audio programs ever made to help you develop a healthy mental attitude and master the practical skills necessary for success. We know they work well, many people have told us so. Each program is easy and simple; listen for eight minutes a day, for a few weeks, and directly apply what you learn. People have told us that using Wisdom Scientific Self-therapy audio programs they have learned to stay calm and improve their health, increase their happiness, and strengthened their relationships. We believe you can do likewise. Try it. You have nothing to lose except your anger!

Save face

This audiobook is very helpful if not essential for me. I am grateful for concrete steps to help me be the person I want to be.

Wonderful Program

This is a really incredible program. I have tried many Anger Control Programs in the past, but none of them worked, except for this program.

Using down to earth and effective techniques, it was amazing how quickly I learnt to control my anger.

I really love the way the program only requires you to listen for 8 minutes a day, this was very important to me, as I have a very busy schedule.

Changed My Life

Simplicity must be the ticket. There are basic concepts presented in this program that are easily grasped and get right to the core of it. They are not the concepts I had earlier heard which did little to assist.

With this program, within two weeks my family is awed at my newfound calm. My closest relationships have entered a new dimension. I urge you to try this program if you are prone to outbursts over calm in some situations, as I was.

As to the earlier review comment, this program is not God-based. "God" is mentioned I think one time in the program. There is no leap of faith required.

Best Anger / Emotional control program EVER!

This program is concise, very well constructed, easy to listen to, very dynamic in its approach, and a very good daily program.
8 minutes each day per session and I often do 2 sessions and sometimes all 3 because they are so short and easy to listen to. Session 3 is so relaxing, I often find myself dozing off at its close. Just Awesome!

AUTHOR is UNINFORMED about the emotion of ANGER

What disappointed you about Anger Control?

This author treats anger as always destructive, and an emotion to learn to aviod. His simplistic approach is not compatible with most mainstream schools of thought. This audio book will likely cause more damage to an already confused sufferer of inappropriate expressions of anger. Anger is just an emotion. How we choose to use anger determines the goodness or badness of it. This fact is ignored this author. Larry, LPC-S

What didn’t you like about Wayne June’s performance?

Not as clear as it could be.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

ho hum -- not much here

What could Abe Kass and R.S.W. have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

I bought this hoping for a quick and insightful look at anger -- hoping to get a nugget or 2 to use with patients I see. not much there

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

for this I spent money. i was not expecting earth shattering in 45 minutes, but, in reality, this could be condensed down to 2-3 sentences. Having said that, MANY of those who reviewed this book, REALLY liked it

Great content but wrong voice

I enjoyed the content. It has helpful exercises that one can do frequently, however, the background music was loudly harsh (my first reaction was that it has demonic-like undertones). My headphones could have been on a higher volume than I needed.

The narrator's voice was also too harsh for the nature of the exercises presented. It was good for the narration of text but a more soft and relaxed voice would have been more appropriate for the exercises.

I would still recommend this for others interested in anger control.

I'm angry I bought this

This is more relaxation than anger control. It should be listened to when angry as it will make you laugh.

Powerful book

A very effective and easy to use programme. I found it changed the way I felt and acted within just a few days and with very little effort. Highly recommended. Why not give it a try? It only takes eight minutes a day and you can listen during your commute.

Excellent narrator

This is a very good recording, it is a every day listening. It could it be longer, giving more details on how to manage our anger, but this is meant to be a short self therapy, and it turned out to be a good self control technique.
