If anger is starting to rule your life, or someone else has urged you to "get a grip--or else," anger expert Dr. Robert Nay has a six-step plan that can help you regain control, even in the most stressful, hot-button situations. This proven program shows you how to stand up for yourself without losing your temper. Put a lid on destructive anger once and for all with fine-tuned strategies that help you:

*Figure out which of the five "faces of anger" are a problem for you, from passive-aggression to all-out rage.
*Recognize the early warning signs of anger in your physical sensations and thoughts.
*Identify and change unrealistic expectations you have for yourself and other people.
*Communicate effectively when differences arise--with your spouse, family members, colleagues, or others.
*Practice anger-management skills alone and in public until they're second nature.

For anyone who needs help with anger, Dr. Nay's program is effective, easy to learn, and--unlike other methods--brings about lasting change.

User Review  - Amy - Christianbook.com

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.
