Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Both of these titles address the destructive potential of men's anger and present step-by-step methods to effect positive behavioral changes. In Dealing with Your Anger (first published in Australia but edited for an American audience), Donovan, a psychotherapist and director of the Anger Clinic in Melbourne, offers a self-help resource that is also designed for practitioners in one-on-one or group therapy sessions. Using his many years of clinical experience with angry men and his own personal struggle with anger and a potential for violence, Donovan shares sensible procedures for understanding, reducing, and eliminating anger. He covers anger's definition, anger sources, emotional strategies for healing anger, practical ways of controlling anger, and positive uses for anger. Also included are Assistive Guidelines for Practitioners and an extensive notes section. Hightower, a licensed psychotherapist and director of the Center for Anger Resolution, Inc., in Houston, presents a highly practical and easy-to-follow guide for managing anger problems. Anger Busting 101 uses the author's Recovery Approach, which gives pointers for diffusing anger before it gets to the boiling point. This method debunks the psychological myth that stifling anger will hurt you. Hightower combines his personal experience, his clients' personal stories, and scientific research to support his methods for handling anger. His ABCs are Abstain from certain behavior and phrases; Believe in the principles for peace, happiness, and permanent change; and Communicate with new phrases. Donovan's guide is more complicated to follow without a therapist's guidance, while Hightower's is more straightforward and simpler to use on one's own. Both are well documented and are recommended for self-help collections in academic and large public libraries and for mental health practitioners.
