Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"A good book...practical and down to earth...it will prove quite helpful to a great many readers."
—Albert Ellis, Ph.D., founder of rational emotive behavior therapy, and author of A New Guide to Rational Living

“The latest edition of When Anger Hurts is at the cutting edge of recent work on anger. The work on emergency anger control and the costs of anger is an important contribution to the literature. The new presentations on creating an anger coping plan and providing anger inoculation techniques add substantially to the armamentarium of individuals dealing with this problem.”
—Aaron T. Beck, MD, professor of psychiatry, University of Pennsylvania, founder and director of the Beck Institute for Cognitive Therapy and Research, and author, Love is Never Enough and Prisoners of Hate

“The authors have done an excellent job in revising an already excellent book. They have integrated new research topics, such as addressing anger when driving. McKay and collegues provide a wealth of practical strategies fo ranger management and making self-directed change. User friendly, simply and clearly written, without professional jargon, the book is a delight to read and should be very useful to clinician and lay person alike.”
—Jerry Deffenbacher, Ph.D., professor of psychology and anger researcher, Colorado State University, Fort Collins, Colorado, and coauthor, Overcoming Situational Anger and General Anger

    This book is the answer and solution to half the world's problems.

    I personally think this work ranks next to the Christian Bible. If you read and understand this book and Proverbs your life will be far less stressful. It has the key to reducing divorce, murder, war, heart attacks, etc. Anger in this world is an atomic bomb without heat that causes great suffering and destruction.

    I am a very angry man and my anger is killing me. This book is a spiritual gift that has given me hope and direction to gain control of my prideful anger. Buy this book and save your life. Save money on divorce attorneys, shrinks, funerals, bail, going to jail, etc.

    This book and a behind kicking would have straighten Hilter and Stalin out. It gets to the bottom of the prideful, self focused foolishness that we tell ourselves, such as that we have a right to be angry because the world doesn't function our way. It shows you how to wrestle with the lies that we joyfully tell ourselves.

    I didn't realize that my anger was just like a drug addiction and a coping cop-out.
