This clearly written book is a continuation and elaboration of Redford Williams's earlier work, The Trusting Heart (Times Bks., 1989), in which he described recent scientific evidence linking hostile thinking and behavior to cardiovascular risk. In Anger Kills , the authors convincingly describe the damage that cynicism, anger, and aggression can do to personal health and to interpersonal relationships. A brief "hostility" questionnaire is followed by 17 proven techniques for changing these insidiously deleterious personality traits. The strategies are straightforward and practical. Follow even some of them and, at the least, you will improve the quality of your relationships. You may even prolong your life. A promotional tour should ensure high demand. Highly recommended for public libraries and wherever interest warrants.
