"Anger is a signal and one worth listening to," writes Dr. Harriet Lerner, in her renowned classic that has transformed the lives of millions of readers. While anger deserves our attention and respect, women still learn to silence our anger, to deny it entirely, or to vent it in a way that leaves us feeling helpless and powerless. In this ngaging and eminently wise book, Dr. Lerner teaches women to identify the true sources of our anger and to use anger as a powerful vehicle for creating lasting change. Book jacket.

Mostly worth the read. Some points dragged, but most of the salient points were actually useful to know. Will probably mull this over and read it again in the future. It's a lot of information to take in, but worth the read. Read full review
