Overview
It's easy to identify rage in people who lose their temper at traffic jams, unruly children, unresponsive coworkers, and unrealistic bosses. But we may not recognize more subtle manifestations of anger, such as being uncomfortable with loose ends, acting impatiently, or being More...
overly critical. That is anger, too. And, as is so often the case, angry folks don't seem to realize that the behavior causing them problems at home or at work actually stems from unrecognized and unresolved pain and emotional injuries from the past. Is all this negative emotion inevitable, or are there choices about how to respond, choices that can improve personal relationships as well as emotional health?

The Anger Trap is a landmark book that strips away the myths and misconceptions about anger and reveals how you can learn to distinguish between healthy and unhealthy anger so that you may choose-- or help someone else to choose-- a better, more spiritually enlightened path. The Anger Trap examines the root causes of anger and can help you realize your patterns and break the destructive cycles of criticism, frustration, and irritation that hurt you and others around you. Drawing insight from timeless spiritual wisdom as well as cutting-edge research, Dr. Carter offers practical techniques to free you from anger, its hidden insecurities, fears, and selfishness and thereby improve the quality of your home and workplace life. The book clearly illustrates how the change process works and The Anger Trap is filled with real-life examples of the ways people have come to terms with their anger by applying the concepts Dr. Carter outlines.

Reviews - What do customers think about Anger Trap?

Very, very helpful and insightful book  Mar 3, 2007
I just finished reading this book and it's really opened my eyes up to a lot about myself and the traits of anger.

I've been dealing with my anger now for about six months. I waited too long to finally pick up a book and read it, and this was the first one I read. Dr. Carter uses many actual therapy sessions to demonstrate various traits of anger, and how they can affect a person. At the end, he gives you many options and ideas on how to better yourself as a person while releasing yourself from the bad side of anger.

If you are feeling a sense of anger that does not help in your everyday life, be it your relationship or profession, I highly recommend reading this book. It will open up your eyes and make you think, and make you want to change.
 
Well Done.  Feb 19, 2007
This is a great book book Dr. Carter. I found it very eye-opening and to the point.
 
Easy to Read and Very Practical  Jan 7, 2007
This reference is one of the best self-help books out there. The author has obviously spent a great deal of time in this field, and he has a knack for imparting his accumulated knowledge so that anyone can understand it. He uses stories about real people to illustrate various problems that can arise, and then shows how they can be resolved. Very easy to read. Also very easy to use, as the author gives concrete methods to handle many common situations. I very much appreciate the time and effort Dr. Carter has taken to put this together, and believe it will help many to deal not only with their own anger, but with the anger of people expressed around them. Excellent work!

Great first effort  Feb 24, 2006
This is the first book I have read about anger. I grew up with an angry mother and a rageful father so this is an issue that needs attention in my life.

I basically chose this book after doing an this site search simply using the word anger. Then I read reviews of several of the options and chose this one.

The author seems to have an experienced and reasonable approach to the subject. As with most books, a definition, exposition is at the beginning, wherein the author firmly places responsibility for change on the reader, which in my mind is where it must be.

I liked that fact that the author does not make any promises of erasing a persons anger, but rather gives options of how to deal with it effectively.

I would like to recommend this book to anyone who deals with anger as the person experiencing it or living with someone who suffers from it. Perhaps this work is no magic bullet, but if taken seriously, can bring some relief and illumination to this often daunting emotion.

My two cents... ; >
