Ruth is clearly a brilliant expert on rage. I never read a book that more accurately described my orientation toward rage, or a book that was more helpful in framing how and why we might give rage less control over our lives. I also very much appreciated her extensive discussions of how rage can relate to racial and economic injustice, and how we can utilize this rage in a way that does not deplete our own resources.

The middle of this book dragged for me, but it did give me some new things to consider, and I would find myself thinking about what was in the book long after I closed it. So it obviously resonated more with me than I originally thought.

Good resource for learning how to listen to the "rage child" and heal from the messages she is sending.

This is a helpful book. I first met Ruth King in the 1990's at a Women of Color Camp. I recently took her one-day-workshop on "Emotional Wisdom for People of Color. I like how she has grown wise over the Years.

Feel good nonsense. I seem to have absolute zero tolerance for any sort of self-help therapy book. I picked this up because the forward is by Alice Walker and it's just another "heal your inner wounded child" work of claptrap. I read a few pages and took it right back to the library.
