The Anger Control Workbook: Simple, Innovative Techniques for Managing Anger and Developing Healthier Ways of Relating. Matthew McKay & Peter Rogers, $32.50

The Anger Control Workbook offers a new and highly effective approach to anger control that gives you the tools you need to manage anger in your day-to-day life. You’ll get a deeper understanding of how anger affects all areas of your life — both physically and emotionally — and within a few weeks feel the benefits of controlling destructive anger. This workbook shows you how to practice new coping behaviors that allow you to gain control in anger-stimulating situations. Throughout, the techniques are streamlined and presented in a clear, step-by-step format, including numerous exercises and worksheets. It’s arranged to make it as easy as possible to put together a program tailored to your own personal obstacles and triggers.


The Anger Cure: a Step-by-Step Program to Reduce Anger, Rage, Negativity, Violence, and Depression in Your Life. Kathleen O'Bannon, $19.95

Anger is not just an emotion — it's a way of life based on all the things you eat, think, and do. Specific biological, nutritional, and psychological states feed anger. So if you don't change your lifestyle and cure your problem, you're headed for degenerative diseases that increase with age — things like diabetes, cancer, heart disease, stroke, arthritis, obesity, and addiction. In her book, author Kathleen O'Bannon, C.N.C., uses her accumulated wealth of knowledge about lifestyle-based conditions to provide a series of tests to help you diagnose what's causing your anger problem. She then guides you through a series of lifestyle changes necessary to cure it. For instance, spikes in your blood sugar after you eat a candy bar instead of a nutritious lunch cause anger attacks, as do yeast infections, a lack of B vitamins, and excess stress.

Not only does O'Bannon describe the many factors that contribute to and promote anger, she provides diets, exercises, and stress management — a complete Anger Cure program — based on nearly thirty years of lifestyle counseling. Being angry is a choice you make when you allow your body to control you instead of you controlling your body. The goal of The Anger Cure is to help you learn how to become more balanced and anger-free. Are you ready to take control of your life? The choice is yours.

Plenty, if you learn the lessons of this wise and practical book, which teaches how anger, that most destructive of emotions, can be put to good, constructive uses — if only it's recognized, understood, approached, and managed mindfully. An eye-opening how-to book on making the most of anger, The Anger Workbook combines the latest scientific research with provocative questions and exercises to take you to the very source of your anger, your attitudes about it, and your power to use it as a positive force for change and growth.

When Anger Scares You: How to Overcome Your Fear of Conflict and Express Your Anger in Healthy Ways. John Lynch, $32.95

Anger is a natural response that can be, if properly channeled, a powerful source of energy and motivation for growth. Some people, though, habitually shy away from their own angry feelings and potentially anger-provoking situations. When confronted with a provocative or confrontational situation, an anger avoider feels that to express anger is to risk losing control, hurting someone else's feelings, or appearing to be a rude, unlikable, or bad person. By side-stepping healthy anger expression, anger avoiders may suffer more than just frustration and resentment: panic attacks and depression, subservience and passivity, headaches and chronic pain often plague people who deny themselves a constructive outlet for their anger.

With this book, first you'll learn to separate anger from rage or fear. Then you'll practice a series of simple, easy-to-follow exercises that coach you to openly express your anger and constructively address difficult people and situations. The book directs you to align yourself with your anger, using it as a tool for positive change. It helps you to set and achieve goals for constructive anger expression.
