Being a man in the twenty-first century isn't easy. In fact, trying to live up to a masculine ideal that may be nothing more than myth has left many men frustrated and angry. Often unable to express their emotions, these men appear buttoned-up until a seemingly minor setback unleashes a torrent of rage that can destroy personal and professional relationships.

Does this sound familiar?

  • The mistakes of other drivers fill him with road rage
  • Setbacks at work send him into a tailspin
  • Unmet expectations in his relationship leave him seething
  • Holidays and other occasions are filled with tension instead of joy

Suppressed anger, when it finally boils over, scalds everyone involved-including loved ones, co-workers, and even strangers.

Christian counselors David Stoop and Stephen Arterburn offer solutions in this trade paper version of The Angry Man. They show what happens when men's deep-rooted anger starts to ruin relationships, jobs, and health, and they help sufferers find their way back from the brink. Men will find the help they need to reimagine a positive image of their masculinity; their loved ones will find advice on reaching a man at his boiling point.
