The toxic costs of anger are well understood: sabotaged careers, alienated family and friends, and even physical damage to a point where illness or an early death can result. Unlike previous models of anger control that began by combating anger-provoking trigger thoughts at a relatively low level of anger, The Anger Control Workbook introduces you to a streamlined new approach that allows you to exercise control at a higher level of anger so that fewer steps are involved in managing all of your problem anger expressions. Throughout, the book offers techniques in a clear, step-by-step format, arranged to make it easy to tailor a program to your own personal obstacles and triggering events

The Anger Control Workbook “...carefully and clearly shows how feelings of anger rip up people’s guts, destroy their relationships, and have many other disadvantages...Indicates how readers can constructively work—and keep working—to minimize anger and rage...Includes many exceptionally useful and practical self-help techniques and exercises. A fine workbook!”
—Albert Ellis, Ph.D., President, Albert Ellis Instistute, New York, and author, A Guide to Rational Living
“In The Anger Control Workbook, the reader learns by showing and telling...by rehearsing, trying out, and modifying. Delightfully, it addresses issues sometimes overlooked in self-help material...why anger is hard to give up and reasons why change may be difficult. McKay and Rogers provide a clear, concise, highly readable and user-friendly book on personal anger reduction. A good book to become a scuffed-up friend in the continued efforts at anger reduction.”
—Jerry Deffenbacher, Ph.D., Anger Researcher, professor, Dept. of Psychology, Colorado State University, Fort Collins
“...anyone reading this book and working the exercises will certainly develop the skills with which they can really control their anger and live happier lives. A job well done that helps people cope with the frustrations of day to day life.”
—Dr. Ronald T. Potter-Efron, Ph.D., author, Letting Go of Anger, Angry All the Time, and Working Anger
