Front Cover
Guilford Publications, 2004 - Self-Help - 246 pages
Angry people often get into trouble--with spouses and kids, bosses and colleagues, friends and strangers--and "putting a lid on it" is easier said than done. Yet this powerful, often destructive emotion can be tamed with the effective six-step program presented in this book Anger expert DL Robert Nay, who has conducted popular trainings and workshops nationwide on his proven approach, combines innovative self-discovery tools and targeted exercises for understanding and managing the five unproductive faces of anger, from passive aggression to all-out rage. Quizzes, worksheets, and practice tips help readers assess when and why their anger becomes a problem, switch gears before it escalates out of control, and channel anger in more productive ways. Beyond just learning textbook strategies, readers gain skills to make anger control second nature in stressful, hot-button situations.

The book is all about psychology. I am looking more for biblical based information on anger. I was disappointed because I felt that a book being sold on a christian web site would be more christian based. The examples it had in the book at times were definitely not what I was looking for.
