"Will my quality of life be greater if I choose to hold on to my anger rather than releasing it?"

There is no lack of anger in our world today. There is anger, especially this year, with elected officials, and on a daily basis with family, bosses, teachers, and even the family pet. But the question asked by the authors of The Anger Workbook: An Interactive Guide to Anger Management, Drs. Les Carter and Frank Minirth, is a question that many people are asking and seeking answers to. I believe that
Bluerose's  Heart
I think anger is one of those things that people are afraid to admit that they struggle with. I think almost all(if not all)of us struggle with it. We simply deal with it in different ways. Some have learned to deal with it in healthier ways than others. We're all imperfect, selfish creatures! I never realized I had anger issues until I got married and had children. You really HAVE to learn the art of being unselfish when you have to share EVERYTHING! "Me" time? Ha! It ceases to exist. ;) Don't ...more

The book for review is “The Anger Workbook” by Les Carter, Ph.D. And Frank Minirth, M.D.

This workbook has many layers to it. It starts off with how to identify one’s anger. It continues in saying how anger thrives on unmet needs and it is also created by other emotions. It includes methods in reducing your anger. What I really liked about the book came in the first few pages. It had a list of the 13 steps toward anger management which breaks it down in layman terms.

I chose “The Anger Workbook: An Interactive Guide to Anger Management” (ISBN 9781401675431) by Les Carter and Frank Minirth because I’m usually consumed by anger — not merely what could be categorized as bipolar disorder, which I’ve diagnosed with.

"Anger is an emotion that is common to every person. Because we are imperfect people in an imperfect world, we are guaranteed to regularly encounter this emotion."

The authors include a check list of what it means to be subject to anger.

Anger can be a difficult emotion to understand. From throwing things and derogatory language, to crying spells and "the silent treatment," anger is an emotion that impacts everyone differently. The only commonality is that we all experience it at one point or another in our lives. So how does one utilize resources to overcome anger if it can be so wide-ranging? This was the question I had for some time until I read The Anger Workbook.

The Anger Workbook is a detailed exploration of anger that, al

Talk about a life changing experience. I just got this workbook and couldn't put it down because God was really challenging me through some difficult stuff over the last year or so and I didn't realize how MUCH anger I had built up inside me. Through this workbook, I learned more about myself and how to let go and let GOD.

What I found the most personable was the stories in each of the chapters. The begining of each new chapter brought the story of a new person and how anger had infected them. Th

Special guest review by the wife:

"Confession: I have what you might call an anger problem. When circumstances don’t go the way I think they should, I have a tendency to fly off the handle and/or succumb to a fit of the sulks. One setback can ruin my whole day … to say nothing of the days of those who have to put up with me.

So when I was given a chance to read a new book called The Anger Workbook, I eagerly agreed. After all, I have anger. I could use help managing it. And the book is by no less
This workbook was very helpful to me early in my Christian walk when I needed it. I'm very passive-agressive and this book was the first I read and opened myself up to shortly after I became a Christian. The anger & depression cycle was something I began to live nearly every day for a number of years before finding True healing in Christ. This book deals with the shame, hurt and inner pain that simmers below the surface of a perpetual angry person's life; in addition, it gives practical tool ...more

I debated whether to add this to my books since it is a very personal thing, but the more I thought about this, it's good to discuss issues like this out in the open. It's long and takes a lot of effort to work through this book, but it has caused real change in my life. Highly recommend this book to anyone who has dealt with this issue before. I anticipate re-reading this book again in the future whenever I feel I need a refresher.

The Anger Workbook gives an excellent and practical method for recognizing anger and learning to express and control anger. I read this book some time ago and recognized I had a problem with anger, though I didn’t rant and rave. This book helped me let go of frustrations and relax control. The authors make the point that anger can be subtle or violent. Frustration, criticism, irritation and depression can be traced to anger. The Anger Workbook gives clear, psychiatrically and biblically sound in ...more
I didn't care for the Christian tone of the book, and especially disliked the chapter on pride, though I do think humility is a virtue. I did find a lot of ideas in the book useful though (such as fear and inferior feelings causing anger).

A decent book, but not quite good enough in some areas. Definitely best if you actually go through the workbook questions and stuff. Would probably work better as a group exercise or to review with someone on a regular basis.

This book was so horrible I couldn't even finish it will be sent to the thrift store to collect dust.
