Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
A self-described "angerologist" and licensed psychologist who specializes in anger management, Weisinger adds to his successful Dr. Weisinger's Anger Work-Out Book (Morrow, 1985) with this guide for managing anger that gives special attention to work-related situations, presently a "hot" issue. He describes dimensions of dealing with anger, typical anger-provoking scenarios, and practical intervention techniques. Weisinger's offering may be summed up as techniques for transforming anger into a positive learning experience, and his approach is effectively presented in this specialized management tool. Managers at all levels will find this a useful reference. Highly recommended. Dealing with anger in a different way, consumer advocate Horowitz, known mainly for his television exposure of frauds and ripoffs in business and government, now adds to his collection of "Fight Back" books (e.g., The Fight Back! Guide to Hospital Care, LJ 5/1/93) with this approach to workplace issues. Issues covered include the job interview, payroll requirements, organizing rights, retirement and pension protection, health protection, workplace privacy, termination, and other workplace-related labor laws and requirements. While all the information is technically correct, based on federal requirements, this material is already thoroughly covered in numerous other works on labor law designed for human resource and other managerial personnel. Obviously, in many businesses, something is still not quite right or there wouldn't be any need for this employee-oriented approach to learning about workplace rights. Recommended only for collections still weak in this area of labor law.-Dale Farris, Groves, Tex.
