Millions of people have problems with anger, and best-selling authors and anger experts Ronald and Patricia Potter-Efron are out to do something about it. Their hard-hitting style gets to the core of anger feelings, empowering readers to take control of their behaviour and their lives. In this revised and expanded edition of their classic book Letting Go of Anger , the authors explore the eleven types of anger responses, how they function, and the best ways to manage them in daily life. Whether readers struggle with explosive, indirect, or chronic types of anger, they'll get straightforward advice for dealing with their feelings. New in this edition is a discussion of ways individuals with certain anger styles can actually benefit from studying other styles and how people with those inclinations manage their behaviour.
