"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 engaging 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.

Review: The Dance of Anger: A Woman's Guide to Changing the Patterns of Intimate Relationships

User Review  - Aliya - Goodreads

A great book for the ladies, especially the ones who frequently feel frustrated in a parental/spousal/sibling/work relationship. I finished it in a few hours, it's an easy read. However if you have a dysfunctional family or toxic co-workers/boss, then you can skip this one. Read full review
