This book is the best of its kind on the market. I am a psychologist who has worked for years in both the business and clinical realm. I have often had the challenge of coaching executives whose career has been stymied because of their anger and aggression, managers who are neither liked nor respected but feared because of their reactions, and employees who are on the cusp of losing their jobs because they lack the understanding and/or motivation to take responsibility for their angry responses. Historically, in all these cases, I had been forced to cobble together information from different sources in an effort to educate and support my clients; this book changes the playing field. This is the first book I have found that offers a comprehensive approach to changing one's anger responses, from offering a substantial education on the basics of anger, to a strong discussion on change readiness, to its 7 proven ways to change anger and ultimately living a happier life, this book has been long awaited and is a welcomed addition to anyone who has worked with angry people. Moreover, it is a gift to those people who have had difficulty managing their own anger. Whether they are currently aware of how their anger affects them and others around them, this book is an excellent tool to make them aware and create the opportunity to create change. One of the strongest facets of this book is its structure. It is broken down into 3 parts, each part containing various chapters that provide important information in easily consumed sections. Part I: Anger Basics. This section is among the clearest most concise and comprehendible reviews of anger and is broken down into 3 chapters. Part II: Seven Proven Ways to Control Anger. The seven chapters in this section identify strategies and tactics, as well as give specific examples on how readers can better control their anger. Part III: Other Issues. This final section includes two chapters that can be seen as follow up and maintenance steps for readers. The two strongest, must read chapters in this book are Chapters 7 and Chapter 10. Chapter 7: Forgiveness. This is a particularly unique chapter and is among the strongest in this book. With this chapter the authors have really hit-their-stride. They offer powerful examples of unforgiving and forgiving responses and a "how-to" forgive process. The closing snippet of this chapter is a particularly robust example of the power of forgiveness. It should be read and seriously considered by anyone who is stuck holding a grudge or who believes doing so is desirable. Chapter 10: Express Your Anger in an Assertive, Productive Way. Reading this chapter is like walking down a path with well-marked signs along the way. You don't have to worry about getting lost or missing a turn because the authors keep you well informed every step of the way. This book should be considered a must read for anyone who has ever had issues with anger or anger management. It would likely be helpful to those people with partners or family members with anger issues, as well as therapists who would like to offer their clients concrete and specific guidelines on how to better manage anger. It is well written, clear, instructive, and offers information in a well thought out format, unlike many books in this genre, and offers a structure that can easily be applied. This book is a standout in the self-improvement genre. I recommend it

Tafrate and Kassinove have done it again. On par with Edna Foa's "Stop Obsessing!" and Greenberger & Padesky's "Mind Over Mood," this book is a true self help resource for all individuals. The reader is introduced to the nature of anger, and how this can affect one's life. This is followed by a great chapter that is left out in most self help books, which is a section designated to assessing the reader's readiness to change their thinking and live a happier life. Not everyone is ready to change right away, and these authors take this into consideration and help the reader to achieve readiness. After the introduction and the motivational chapter, readers are taken through a series of steps that allow them to gradually and systematically address their anger. These steps are arranged from the easiest to master to more intricate methods later in the book. Throughout the text, readers are provided with samples of how others have used the techniques detailed in the book, which further helps to make the reader's goals seem more achievable. The illustrated methods are also accompanied by worksheets that can be copied and used in multiple situations where anger might present a problem. Basically, all the bases are covered and the reader is provided with an arsenal with which to battle their anger. I highly recommend this book to not only those people who's anger is getting out of control, but to anyone who is interested in learning about how they think, and how they might be able to change their thinking. The methods that are presented to the reader are applicable to many different situations and feelings, and as such I would without reservation tell anyone I know to pick a copy up. You have nothing to lose, but a lot to gain.

These two characters have posted the exact same review for the book on Amazon as well. Seems a little fishy to me, especially since they both have very few reviews overall. Perhaps they are paid to write reviews...who knows. Also, I have not read this book and cannot comment on its quality.
