Most people stereotype anger by assuming that it always results in shouting, slamming fists, or throwing things. However, anger is not that one-dimensional.
In fact, all of the statements below represent feelings of anger:
- When I am displeased with someone I shut down any communication and withdraw.
- I get very tense inside as I tackle a demanding task.
- I feel frustrated when i see someone else having fewer struggles than I.
- There are times when my discouragement just makes me want to call it quits.
- I can be quite aggressive in my business pursuits or even when just playing a game.
The good news is anger can be managed. In The Anger Workbook Les Carter, Ph.D., and Frank Minirth, M.D., offer a unique 13-step interactive program that will help you:
- Identify the best ways to handle anger
- Understand how pride, fear, loneliness, and inferiority feed your anger
- Uncover and eliminate the myths that perpetuate anger-"Letting go of my anger means I am conceding defeat" or "No one understand my unique problems."
- Identify learned patterns or relating, thinking, and behaving in your life that influence your anger.

- Great for Everyone! by ThriftyMommy08 on 10/11/2012
"The Anger Workbook" is a workbook devoted to helping us begin to acknowledge and limit anger and the effect that it has on our lives. Les Carter, PhD and Frank Minirth, MD have based this interactive guide on 13 steps that help build an effective anger management mentality. This is a workbook, which I think works so well for a topic like this, because it poses questions and gives you plenty of space to write in your own answer. It is really a great tool for an honest assessment of your anger, and it offers solid guidance for controlling/limiting/managing anger in your everyday life. This book isn't just for people who have serious anger management issues - this would be perfect for the stressed out mom, busy working father, or moody teenager! I thought that "The Anger Workbook" really helped me be honest with myself about situations I can look at differently, and attitudes I can change in order to have a healthier mentality. I would recommend this to anyone - it is a very useful book!
