Read an Excerpt

From the introduction by the author:

"I am convinced that anger is an epidemic problem both in the larger world and in our homes and work places. I've written Anger Management not as a technical work describing the social science of anger, but as a practical work intended to help people understand their own anger and the anger of others. ...By reading this book, you will learn that managing your anger is a series of skills that (you) can learn over time...With this program, (you will) learn to raise the temperature we often refer to as "the boiling point"-that moment at which reason is consumed by rage."

Anger may well be the number one problem in modern society. If left unresolved, it distorts people's perception of reality, negates happiness and serenity, can cause depression and addictive behaviors, reduces resistance to illnesses, and cause a wide variety of self-destructive behavior. In the extreme, it explodes in physical or emotional violence, which ultimately breeds more anger and more violence.

Anger Management is a practical and down-to-earth program that will teach you not only to understand your own anger, but, perhaps just as importantly, how to deal with the angry behavior of others. It details the role anger and conflict play in day-to-day interactions at home, at work and in social environments. Real-life examples discuss anger that erupts in intimate relationships, on the road, on the job with co-workers, or when dealing with people who are rude, irritating or intimidating.

Anger Management also provides two unique sections. The first describes the psychology and behavior of predatory people; the other teaches you how to deal with situations where remaining "cool under pressure" can be a vital survival tactic.

Anger Management is one of the most comprehensive and easy-to-follow anger-management programs available today. It is the ultimate self-help guide, but also an invaluable resource for corporate human resources departments in any business where tension and conflict occur during negotiations or in customer-service interactions.

    Stay cool by reprogramming your assumptions

    Peter Favaro provides numerous tools to help those who want to get a handle on their emotions, particularly anger, and to improve their relationships with others. He is always careful to define his key terms and reinforce essential principles, and he provides example after example of difficult situations and how to deal with them. The book is well organized and full of techniques that will help you overcome frustration. Favaro¿s suggestions are all useful. However, the book does not explore the risks involved in some of the techniques. While Favaro is careful to explain that not all techniques work for everyone, he downplays the possibility of negative reactions to conscientious, careful communication in many work-focused organizations, and underestimates the power of context and workplace culture. Otherwise, this is familiar but useful conflict resolution material. We recommend this book to self-help beginners who want to improve their conflict resolution skills by changing their behavior.
