Publisher's Summary

Anger is universal. Unchecked, it can cause lasting damage in our lives: wrecked relationships, lost jobs, even serious disease. Yet in these increasingly stressful times, all of us have acted in anger - and often wished we hadn't. Is there a way that really works to solve problems and assert ourselves without being angry?

The answer is a resounding yes, if you follow the breakthrough steps of Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT). This proven approach, developed by world renowned psychotherapist Dr. Albert Ellis, has withstood the test of time, helping countless people deal effectively with emotional problems.

Using easy-to-master instructions and exercises, this classic book will show you how to apply REBT techniques to understand the roots and nature of your anger, and take control of and reduce angry reactions. Here you will discover:

  • The rational and irrational aspects of anger
  • Special insights into your self-angering beliefs
  • How to think, feel, and act your way out of anger
  • How to relax
  • How to accept yourself with your anger
  • ...and much more that will help you challenge and eliminate the anger that can frustrate success and happiness at home, at work, anywhere

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Another Great Ellis Book

This is another great Ellis book. It is enough different from the other book on anger that it is worthwhile to have both.

Also, this book ends with a tutorial on relaxation.
