The author of the bestseller Anger: The Misunderstood Emotion challenges the false assumptions that govern how we think about women and men, and dissects the myths that perpetuate misunderstandings. Tavris then moves the discussion beyond us-them arguments, and forces us to think anew about how women and men together can create the lives, the loves, and the society we most want.
