Editorial Reviews

Westport News
Her readable book is a workbook- it offers a lot to think about. Written in a conversational tone, it provides ideas and exercises that help you understand and take charge of the wrath in your life.
MidWest Book Review
It's Not Personal! is a practical self-help guide...ideally suited for the non-specialist general reader seeking to get a handle on their temperament. It also holds great value for anyone having to deal with a chronically angry individual by helping to identify and understand the effects of frustration and fear which translate themselves into anger states and statements.

Read an Excerpt

The whole process of getting angry may only take a few seconds or a few minutes, and it can happen automatically without your awareness of it. However, all along the way, you have an inner dialog of thoughts, perceptions, beliefs, and feelings. At any point, you have the ability to interrupt these thoughts and question their validity. You can ask yourself why people seem to be mistreating you, if you should take it personally or if their reasons really have nothing to do with you. When you can do that, you can stop yourself from becoming angry.
