Licensed clinical professional counselor Karmin (Anger Management Workbook for Men) says it’s the little things (e.g., traffic congestion) that usually set people off. Using cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), Karmin helps readers control their anger by identifying their interpretation of events (e.g., “they did that on purpose”) and then exploring options for the expression of anger. He advises eating and sleeping well, practicing mindfulness, and learning progressive muscle relaxation to defuse a situation. The author also demonstrates how one can maintain a positive outlook and express oneself effectively.
VERDICT Excellent, easy advice for those who live with a short fuse.
