Men tend to express their anger differently than women do. Research shows men are often more violent and less willing to confront and deal with their emotions than women. Written by a psychologist who specializes in the treatment of male rage, Beyond Anger shows the angry - and miserable - man how to change his life and relationships for the better. This book helps men understand their anger by explaining what the specific symptoms of chronic anger are and by showing angry men how their actions negatively affect family, friends, and coworkers. It helps men control violent feelings by using simple exercises - developed especially for men - to identify when and why anger occurs and by helping them form new habits to prevent anger before it starts. Women, too, will learn essential strategies for understanding and helping the angry men in their lives. Beyond Anger is honest, tough, and real.

Review: Beyond Anger: A Guide for Men: How to Free Yourself from the Grip of Anger and Get More Out of Life

User Review  - Steven - Goodreads

I was wary when this first got recommended to me, but Harbin not only talks sensibly about how to recognize you have anger-related problems, but provides useful coping strategies that have all the more credibility for his having to deal with his own anger. Highly, highly recommended. Read full review

Review: Beyond Anger: A Guide for Men: How to Free Yourself from the Grip of Anger and Get More Out of Life

User Review  - Jlefevre - Goodreads

I started reading this like three years ago and only got about 1/4 of the way through. It is really boring. Maybe it has some good points, but when you can't stay focused enough to figure them out, the points don't mean much. Read full review
