Published in 2005, this book aims to challenge the reader that anger can be used positively, outlining four key truths: people or events may spark your anger caused by your own judgements, judging others prevents connection, being clear about your needs helps to identify solutions, and meeting your needs through strategies transforms anger into a positive. Using questions and answers, the author presents common misconceptions about anger, links to non-violent communication, the life-enriching purpose of anger, and how you can use anger to discover what you need and meet those needs in constructive ways.
