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 combatting anger-provoking trigger thoughts at a relatively low level of anger this workbook introduces a streamlined new approach that allows you to begin a higher level of anger so that fewer steps are involved. Throughout the techniques are presented in a clear step-by-step format and arranged to make it easy to tailor a program to your own personal obstacles and triggering events. --from the publisher
