Item description for Anger: Handling a Powerful Emotion in a Healthy Way by gary chapman...
Overview Research and real-life examples from the author's counseling experience reveal why people get angry, what they can do about it, and how they can use anger for good.
A relative makes a tactless comment about your child's weight. The guy behind you on the expressway follows too closely. Your wife lets the gas tank go down to empty...again. We live in an angry society. From road rage to workplace incidents to marital bickering, out-of-control anger is all around us. How can we handle our anger--and help those we love with theirs? How can we teach our children to deal with their anger? And what about those long-simmering feelings of anger toward people in our past? What's the difference between "bad" and "good" anger? Bestselling author and relationship expert Dr. Gary Chapman offers helpful--and sometimes surprising--insights on why we get angry, what we can do about it, and how we can use anger for good. Includes a 13-session discussion guide perfect for small groups, workplace studies, and book clubs. Each chapter ends with reflection questions.

Anger management at its best Jul 15, 2008
I got this book specifically because Gary Chapman, a Christian therapist and author, wrote it. His book The Five Love Languages has been an inspiration to many couples seeking a way to make their spouse feel loved and to also make the reader aware of what makes him/her feel loved. His Anger book has left me where I can start managing my anger instead of stuffing it down inside. Funny how in the Bible, God and Christ express anger - but we're told as Christians that it's not a "good" emotion and we should "turn the other cheek". There is a time and a place for everything. If you're angry, then do what you have to in order to come to terms with that anger and deal with it in a healthy way, not the way most of us were taught as kids. The lessons in this book are the groundwork for a healthy life, in whatever circumstances you find yourself. As with any book, read the full description, as it will clue you in as to what the author's motivation is. Chapman is a relationship therapist and his work is phenomenal. He's also a Christian and teaches how to deal with anger in a healthy way, instead of holding it inside until you are ill or you just totally lose it. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants a way to express anger in a healthy, constructive way. Too often, we use our anger to hurt others. This book, although based on Biblical teaching, can offer something to anyone who wants to stop the anger cycle and repair the relationships with those around them.

There was a lot of talk about God in this book. I am not the most religious person so I felt like it wasn't explaining enough on how to deal with it. I read the chapter on anger with kids and all it said was quote the bible with your kids, admit when you are wrong and listen. I needed more that that to guide me.

I did not realize how much anger I was holding on to and the effect it was having on me. I was able to see and admit my anger and then offer it up God. I feel a lot better and happier.
I will be able to use what I read and apply it to the future as well. I learned ways to recognize my anger and constructive ways to resolve underlying issues.
