I purchased this book along with Rosenberg's Non-Violent Communication. I read this first in my haste to address my rage when dealing with my toddlers. I found it really helpful in understanding my own anger!! Not so helpful in amending my children's behaviour. If only there was a "magic bullet" to train and wrap toddlers with empathy - that will be a longer haul.

As with all books by Marshall B. Rosenberg, wonderful, thoughtful, provocative, life-saving. Non-violent communication should be taught in all schools, institutions, prisons, everywhere.

HASH(0xb5359174) out of 5 stars Best book on anger management. Cuts to the core Jan. 10 2008
By JC - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book beats all the crap all there. It tells you the truth. You are angry because you have a need and it's not being met. And the problem with anger is you are just trying to get it met in the wrong way! So easy, practice self ownership. It helped me get over my anger tendencies!

HASH(0xb50adc00) out of 5 stars Concise, invaluable information Jan. 4 2006
By Ann S. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I found this booklet so insightful, even life-changing. I don't need a lot of extra words, I like reading concise, on-target material. Radically shifting the experience of anger -- for only $7. That's worth five stars.

By jungman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book was clear, to the point, and filled with information. I have never read a book on psychology (especially anger) that made this much sense. Everything the author talked about I have experienced, but couldn't express it the way he did. I have learned from this book.

HASH(0xb535c744) out of 5 stars Astounding clarity, profound help for anyone afflicted with anger! Feb. 12 2011
By Zeno - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This books is only about 40 pages long, more a pamphlet than a book. I read the entire thing the day I received it. I wept. I felt sad, exhilarated and encouraged all at once. I felt a quiet revolution taking place in my head. I was tempted to purchase umpteen copies to pass out to everyone I know. The message is so simple and so profound. If you have come so far in your search as to read this review, you must read this book!

HASH(0xb535c684) out of 5 stars I love this book, but... Feb. 19 2014
By Orson HG Welles - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I spent $8.06 on this hard copy with my prime account only to find out that it is 1/6th of the book Living Nonviolent Communication: Practical Tools to Connect and Communicate Skillfully in Every Situation by Marshall Rosenberg. The 'Living NVC' book goes for $14.19 with Prime ($17.95 without) and also includes: 'We Can Work It Out', 'Being Me, Loving You', 'Getting Past The Pain Between Us', 'Raising Children Compassionately', & 'Practical Spirituality'. All of these titles go for around $8 with Prime. If you have any intention of buying more than one of these 6 titles consolidate and buy the 'Living NVC' book.
