    Caprice, Looking for Reputable Book on ANGER
    An_198072 posted:
    I have issues with anger that have gone on before losing a loved one but only seem to have gotten worse in the six years later. Can you or anyone guide me to the best reading rescources for anger management? I have anger that is not healthy and I would really like to find a way out of it but don't trust just any of the books out there on the subject. My anger seems to sometimes, often time turn to inner rage and I know it isn't healthy.

    Thank you for your time.

    I hope others have some ideas for you because I don't really know which books are best for this.

    In the meantime, try going to and searching on 'Anger' in Books and you'll find a slew of books there. Read the ratings and reviews and descriptions to find something that feels right to you. (I just looked there and found a lot, some of which looked really good, and including workbooks.)

    But also consider working with a therapist. Anger is often a secondary emotion (in response to loss, fear, etc.) and working on the core emotions and issues beneath that anger may really help. :-)
