    The Most Definitive Anger Book

    As a therapist working with people who have anger issues, I cannot praise this book enough. This is the most definitive book about anger on the bookshelves today. Most authors try an intellectual approach to dealing with anger, but Mr. Lee goes to the heart of the problems and explains why we need it, why we avoid it, and most importantly, how to deal with it appropriately. I ask all my clients (I do group therapy with abused women who have a lot of anger and with men who are charged with Domestic Violence) to read this book so they will have an understanding of what they and others are facing in their healing work. Also, a great book for non-professionals, because it explains anger and confronts in everyday language myths and misconceptions about anger. A must have for anyone who deals with anger (Don't we all?).
