Summary

Anger is a completely normal, healthy human emotion. But when it gets out of control and turns destructive, it can lead to problems - at work, in personal relationships, and in the overall quality of life. Anger Management for Dummies provides trusted and authoritative information on anger management methods, skills, and exercises that will help you or a loved one identify sources of anger and release them healthily.  

Anger has become one of the most intimate issues in today's world - as life, in general, has become increasingly stressful.... Anger Management for Dummies shows you how anger is often a bi-product of other more primitive emotions, such as fear, depression, anxiety, and stress, and arms you with the strategies that can help you conquer them. Inside, you'll discover how to overcome obstacles to change, rethink rage, confront anger head-on with healthier responses, and much more.  

With the tools, tips, and strategies provided in this hands-on guide, you'll find everything you need to overcome anger and live a happier, more productive life.

Ok-ish

Although this book was comprehensive, I didn't come away with what I was hoping for: a quick fix. After reading it, I couldn't really articulate practically what needed to be done. Maybe I wasn't paying close enough attention... probably due to my next point.

The first few chapters seem more suited for the Dummies printed book format as there are too many bullet points/titles/small sections - I just got lost in the audio version. There should be more auditory pointers as to what is a title, a bullet point etc. Either way, I don't think this book works in audio format. A more effective format would be longer flowing sections. I couldn't listen to this book at 1.25x or 1.5x as I do with most others. I didn't encounter this issue as much with another Dummies audiobook I listened to.

I also wasn't too keen on the voice initially - too advertise-ey - but I got use to it.
