According to the authors (English, SUNY-Albany), rage defines women's lives. But this pastiche of tabloid vignettes (concerning, among others, Amy Fisher and Princess Di) and superficial case studies of "average" women does more to confirm stereotypes of angry women than to reveal the "secrets" of that rage. The authors' musings are set in the frame of the Medusa myth, to which they repeatedly advert, supplemented by outmoded popular psychology and undigested snippets of theory drawn from a variety of disciplines. The appendix includes a quiz entitled "How Enraged Are You?" with a scale that ranges from "low-grade anger" (up to 40 points) to "filled with rage and unresolved anger" (120 to 186 points). A second appendix, which offers advice on "channeling your rage," includes the admonition, "Lighten up!" Not a worthwhile purchase.-Cynthia Harrison, Federal Judicial Ctr., Washington, D.C.
