Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
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.

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!

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.

jungman Dec 5 2007
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.

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!

Don't Be Fooled By Its Briefness Dec 18 2010
By Dharma Brownie Girl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Don't be fooled by the briefness of this booklet. When I first opened the packet and found this thin book, I was worried. How can 38 pages resolve the anger issues that I have been experiencing for over three decades? I'm not going to lie; it can't perform any miracles. It's going to take time for me to work on my anger issues, but the advice that was given, in four steps, are very practical, useful, and easy to apply. While I was reading it, I caught myself trying to justify my anger or come up with exceptional examples. "Yeah, that might be true, but it doesn't apply when it comes to racism." Well, guess what? There's actually an example in the book on racism and Rosenberg's explanation makes sense to me. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is overwhelmed with anger (like me) or who is going into the profession of helping others deal with anger issues.
