Simple and effective
Would you listen to Overcoming Anger and Irritability again? Why?
This book is not loaded with techniques to deal with your anger like deep breathing, it's more about noticing your anger and using your rational brain, instead of your primitive brain. By noticing your anger and shift in temperament by noting it in a journal, you get an idea of what sets you off. Just by noticing it and logging these things really helps. The book has much more details and examples and I have listened to it over and over again.
What about William Davies’s performance did you like?
The speaker has a great voice and accent that helped put me at ease.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Yes, the story about a person in prison for an act they committed while angry.

Great. I wish it was much longer!
Any additional comments?
I really loved it and there was so much content in such a little time. I wanted to know so much more of what he was talking about, please write a longer, much longer book or audio. highly recommended.

Short but helpful...
...in overcoming irritability. There are lots of useful tips, and I enjoyed listening to the author’s British accent.

Short, simple, real--doable--advice
All the advice was reasonable and doable. The reasoning behind the advice was explained, too.

Awesome awesome book!
I already tried a few of the technics discussed and noticed my irritability has gone down and I am much more aware of my anger instances! I can't wait to fully implement all the techniques and be a better person. The voice is very clear, calm and friendly, perfectly suited for a book like this!

Speaks Too Quickly
Speaker speaks too quickly. Love the overview and the techniques. Must listen at least 2 times.

I can highly recommend this book. It has been written by an experienced professional who has lots of useful and practical advice. It is also full of examples, stories and anecdotes - I didn't expect to enjoy it as much as I did. It has really challenged my core beliefs about anger and I think it will make a real difference to how I cope with angry feelings.

Good tips to take away from reading this. Thanks!
Great hints and tips to use in the real world. After reading other similar books that were not very good, I personally was impressed by this one. It doesnt drag on to the point you switch off which was particularly helpful too!

should never read your own writtings.
he makes it a bit awkward and fast. should have used someone else to read his work. apart from that, good material to read and apply

Fairly useful, its a short book so you can repeat it to understand examples of why certain extreme moods may overcome you. There is an exercise at the end although its just to sit there and breathe for 5 minutes.... download the headspace app if you want a better exercise thats similar

informative.. but too short, too simplistic and overpriced for what you get. little constructive content for everyday situations.
