A practical,insightful, and excellent guide for those whom have debilatating anger, where anger has seriously dealt destruction and havoc to all areas of living a productive and enriching life; the book doesn't shy away from facing the cycle of thoughts and feelings that have led to self-destructive behavior, and offers a realistic and rational approach to overcoming it through various exercises.

Well, let's just say CBT based therapy like this does not work for me. I ended up being very angry with this book (which sounds funny I know) and returned it to the library and told my social work that I never wanted to discuss this book again. I'm more of a DBT person.
