Overview

THERE ARE SOME PEOPLE who always seem to rub us the wrong way. Whether it's accidental or deliberate, one thing is clear, when someone pushes our buttons, it's up to us to control our reaction. In fact, it's the only thing we can control. We can't control how another person thinks, speaks, or acts. But we can make sure our reactions to them are guided by reason, rather than emotion.

In this extraordinary, practical guide to anger management, world renowned psychologist Albert Ellis and his colleague Arthur Lange join together to show us the most effective strategies for keeping our cool and disarming the powerful potential button-pushers in our lives, including:

  • Bosses, supervisors, and co-workers
  • Spouses
  • Children
  • Parents
  • Siblings
  • Bureaucrats

    Brining anger management into the living room and the office, How To Keep People from Pushing Your Buttons will help you lead a more productive and enjoyable life.
