How To Get Rid of Irritability and Anger Without Pissing Anyone Off

Stress and Anger Expert Doc Orman, M.D. Shares His Secrets To Curing Anger

If you want to be happier, healthier and more peaceful, this audiobook is for you! You will learn:

How To Eliminate Anger Before It Eliminates You

Dr. Mort Orman has been studying irritability and the impact of anger on your health, success and life for years. In his research, he found a proven strategy that works for getting rid of anger and irritability fast, without drugs or medications.

One Simple Process For Turning Negative Thoughts Into Fuel For Growth

When you eliminate negative thoughts and energy from your life, you'll feel a sense of calm an inner peace like you've never felt before. But this is the power of negative thinking - when you turn your negative thoughts around, you actually create more energy and power that moves you into the direction you want to go in your life faster than you've ever moved before.

Why Going For Happiness Is The Quickest Path To What You Want

So often in life we try to be right instead of being happy. We argue to protect our viewpoint when we could just as easily let the argument go and be happy. Learn how to reprogram your mind and subconscious habits and never have another unnecessary argument again!

Blah, blah, blah, 3x5 index card, blah, blah...

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

This book was almost entirely preamble to a guaranteed way to overcome irritability, but it never really got to the meat of anything. I have listened to it twice and I didn't glean anything from it other than a 3x5 index card to figure out why you're irritable, then no real solution to help you deal with it. I'm not going to lie. I found myself getting irritated at the book not getting to the point. I will listen a third time (because it's short) but I doubt I'll get much more out of this sales pitch for an index card.

Would you ever listen to anything by Doc Orman MD again?

No

Would you be willing to try another one of Matt Stone’s performances?

Maybe

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

No.

Short but very helpful

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

It is a hands on book on irritability and anger.
I was not expecting fast results, and I was wrong.
The method presented in this book is sound, it does not call for a long debate / analysis of every instance of anger that you would encounter. It offers a shortcut instead. I was extremely skeptic about the method but i decided to give a try and follow all the instruction. I was trull surprised when i noticed that this approach really works.

What did you like best about this story?

it's hands on approach.

What about Matt Stone’s performance did you like?

Very good narrator, his voice is vell matched for the content of the book.

Some good Info, but not worth the price

This little pamphlet essentially advises you to be mindful of what you are feeling. That's always good advice, but this presentation is poor: Very little advice or examples on how to put his idea into practice, very repetitive ( all this info could have been on 1 page - in fact, he sums it up on an index card that he suggests you write up), and for some odd reason he insults The Affordable Care Act, out of nowhere. If the author put some meat into this, it might have been a more helpful purchase. When listening I felt like I was sitting at a timeshare sales pitch in exchange for free ski lift tickets. Not recommended.

Try Pema Chodron ( any book ) or the RAIN meditation by Tara Brach .

Not that great

I wasn't super impressed by this book. It seems like he's trying to sell you something for most of the book.

Confused

This book was halfway all about the author. It didn’t give me anything useful to assist in the titles subject.

Includes a political statement

The audio book contains a biased political statement about the ACA. The statement is irrelevant to the book’s topic and gives no contextual information about the ACA. Don’t waste your time; there are other audio books that stick to the topic without cheap political shots.

Wish I could've gotten more.

Simplistic approach to the subject matter, I didn't find it compelling or particularly helpful. The author does offer tools and techniques that may or may not work for you.

Irritability

Dr Orman puts things into perspective as to why one gets angry. Very good points in the book and an action plan. Good book.

BASIC

I finished but it offered no new insights on anxiety and really didn't give much about how to overcome the problem. it only identified the problem. Not that helpful.

a perfect guide to self help anger management

the one thing we do automatically is judge others for their miss failings and this guide gives you the perfect answer to stopping yourself from losing contact with sociability in turn hopefully helping others to see within themselves that the most quickest response isn't always the best response

Excellent

I'm feeling hopeful for the first time in a long time, that I can resolve my anger issues. The book is short, but I think the index card method will be very helpful when I feel the dreaded red mist coming over me! I also enjoyed listening to the narrator of the book, who was very pleasant sounding. I am now feeling positive about healing the difficult relationships I have with others, although I acknowledge that it will still take work to implement the advice given.

Loved it!

I wish all self-help books were as short and to the point as this one! Gives good explanation of the universal causes of irritability and a practical and easy way to start managing it provided you are willing to be open to it and put some effort in.
