I believe I will be able to deal with really angry people in a better way; more importantly I will be a less angry person :-)
Read this for one of my grad classes. I thought it was a very practical, easy to follow look at the physiology behind anger. The complexity of the brain is so fascinating.

I cannot say enough positive things about this read. I picked it up to help me better understand my clients with anger management concerns, and learned and gathered a world of knowledge about myself and my own relationships.

This was a fascinating read. The human brain is so amazing!
A good book, perhaps too focused on the brain-level functions of anger. The message that you can change your brain is great, and there are some good strategies in the latter half of the book. I think we could all stand to improve our empathy and empathic concern.

Helps me understand different stages of my anger, and how I can resolve it before it escalates into something that is out of control or that I will regret later. For people who gets angry, frustrated, irritable easily, short-tempered, this is a really insightful read to better help you manage your temper and anger.
A nice, solid, and concise guide to understanding how experiences, moods, behaviors, and feelings all mesh within the neurological-anatomical-biochemistry of the brain, as well as ways on how to change deep-seated processes.

Good, but very clinical. Dealt very much with the actual brain function. Some good tips on how to attempt to retrain.
Very informartive and easy to comprehend. Although may take time for people to actually achievem it does say that it's a 6 month program
A very good practical explanation but based on good science.
