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.
