I picked up this book because the rating was so high. Then I read it. It wasn't bad, but for me it wasn't good either. The first 2/3rds the characters lives are rather depressing. For me, life in general is depressing enough, I want a book to make me laugh, to make me forget my bills, crummy job, and not remind me of them.

The three women meet at an eight-week anger management seminar at Henderson Community College hosted by arrogant know it all psychologist Dr. Hugh Danforth.--------------- Emergency room nurse Susan Roth feels h pressure from her job that leaves her wound tight and ready to snap and from raising children following her divorce last year. Dennis who is proof alien abductions must be real insists they are dating just because she was too polite to say no to his joining her for lunch. He insures she loses her cool, which she does when she threatens to rip off his testicles.---------------- Brassy hairstylist Tonya Rutherford is outraged when she finds her spouse cheating on her. She literally gives him the big boot emphatically so the judge sent her to this eight week class.------------- Classy former executive Assistant Monica Saltzman has used her looks and sexual favors to charm her boss. She becomes irate when he dumps her for a younger siren so she feels justified for putting a flowerpot through the windshield of his hummer while he was in the driver¿s seat.---------------- The trio becomes buddies as their antipathy towards their obnoxious instructor grows as he uses vernacular and a holier than thou attitude. That is until the ladies decide to test his cool under pressure.------------- MOOD SWING is an intriguing somewhat superficial look at anger that does not go deep enough inside the heads of ¿Ms. Class¿, ¿Ms. Brass¿, and Ms. Nurse except to a degree through the challenges by their insufferable instructor. The trio bonds as each suffers from a raging incident that is not their norm, but soon believe pressure caused them to explode and are ready to do so to Dr. Pest. Fans who appreciate the need to get even will root for these three females.-------------- Harriet Klausner
