Overview

Anger plagues all of us on a personal, national, and international level. Yet we see people, such as the Dalai Lama, who have faced circumstances far worse than many of us have faced—including exile, persecution, and the loss of many loved ones—but who do not burn with rage or seek revenge. How do they do it?

Working with Anger presents a variety of Buddhist methods for subduing and preventing anger not by changing what is happening, but by framing it differently. No matter what our religion, learning to work with our anger is effective for everyone seeking personal happiness as well as world peace.

Working with Anger was chosen for a Spirituality and Health Magazine Award as one of the Best Spiritual Books of 2001.

"Thubten Chodron is one of our freshest voices of the dharma. Echoing the clarity of H.H. the Dalai Lama's own teachings on forgiveness and healing, in Working With Anger she brings us helpful, practical insights from her deep training in Himalayan wisdom traditions. Written in clear, user-friendly language, this superb handbook offers us concrete strategies for dealing effectively with the painful afflictions of anger, criticism, and betrayal in contemporary life situations. Can we ever tire of such necessary, good advice?"—Trevor Carolan, David See-Chai Lam Centre for International Communication

If you are looking for a practical guide to overcome anger and live with greater tolerance, love, and forgiveness, I highly recommend this book."—Howard C. Cutler, MD, coauthor of The Art of Happiness

"Here we have a psychology that leads to true liberation. . . . What I like here is that this work is not just about moralizing and sermonizing, but gives practical, useable techniques to neutralize anger. . . . It has a clarity and simplicity that can only come from someone who actually lives what she writes. Highly recommendable."—Diamond Fire
