My favorite recommended workbook for people who are looking for effective, down-to-Earth strategies for learning to cope with their anger. The approach is hands-on, so be prepared to do some writing and actively put into practice the suggestions and exercises the author outlines in every chapter.
The author explains how anger works in our lives, how it perpetuates, and how to recognize it not only in your own life, but in others as well.
