Publisher's Summary

Anger is something we feel. It exists for a reason and always deserves our respect and attention. We all have a right to everything we feel - and certainly our anger is no exception.

"Anger is a signal and one worth listening to," writes Dr. Harriet Lerner in her renowned classic that has transformed the lives of millions. While anger deserves our attention and respect, women still learn to silence our anger, to deny it entirely, or to vent it in a way that leaves us feeling helpless and powerless. In this engaging and eminently wise book, Dr. Lerner teaches both women and men to identify the true sources of anger and to use it as a powerful vehicle for creating lasting change.

For decades this book has helped millions of listeners learn how to turn their anger into a constructive force for reshaping their lives. With a new introduction by the author, The Dance of Anger is ready to lead the next generation.

    "Great Material, delivery feels dated"

    I read this for a class and it was an ideal supplement to my other class texts. The material is good, sometimes the delivery sounds dated. Great read for a man or woman.

    "A Great General Guide"

    A very good surface book but lacks the depth and intensity that many relationships carry. I wish she had at least clarified if her method worked in all relationships or if it is discouraged in abusive ones. She presents the information as if all relationships are equal.

    "Terribly outdated!"
    What would have made The Dance of Anger better?

    An update for the 21st century! Very simplistic attitude about women and anger set in the 1950s ... more appropriate for my grandmother than me. No thanks!

    "Enlightening and helpful."

    Great therapy to discover no one is at fault. Helpful tools are given to recognize your own patterns on the patterns of others.

    "Insightful"

    This book has definitely opened my eyes about family dynamics. A little bit hard to put down. Very interesting.

    "Most helpful self help book ever!"
    Any additional comments?

    I originally read this book 20 years ago, and recently felt the need to revisit it. I downloaded the audio book (long commute) and found it just as helpful. The narrator was excellent, and I love the stories and different examples of how to put the advice into play. I only wish that there were a non gender specific version for reluctant men, because the advice given does bridge the gender gap if one is able to "hear" past the she/her narrative.

    "Learn to benefit from power of anger!"

    Helpful for either gender, and for any relationships. Dr. Lerner explains how we can break the cycle of blaming in a relationship.

    "Should be required reading or listening by all women."

    This is a book that is so useful to our understanding of roles and family interactions that it should be required reading by all women. I read it years ago. Not everything stuck. Listening to it again was revelatory! Going to suggest it to my women friends to read, as it is a still relevant book.
