We live in an angry society.  From road rage to workplace incidents to marital bickering, out-of-control anger is all around us.  How can we handle our anger--and help those we love with theirs?  How can we teach our children to deal with their anger?  And what about those long-simmering feelings of anger toward people in our past?  What's the difference between "bad" and "good" anger?  Bestselling author and relationship expert Dr. Gary Chapman offers helpful--and sometimes surprising--insights on why we get angry, what we can do about it, and how we can use anger for good.
