“As a therapist, I have found anger to be one of the most complicated, confusing emotions that people have, yet few resources deal with this topic. Instant Anger Management provides a comprehensive and easy-to-understand guide to coping with anger, including why we get angry and how to handle anger without becoming destructive. People will like the ‘try this’ sections, which clearly describe strategies to manage anger and stay emotionally healthy.”
