Publisher's Summary

Is uncontrolled anger destroying your relationships?

Do you find it difficult to keep your cool in stressful situations?

Anger is a natural and healthy emotion to experience, but when it isn’t processed or expressed properly, it can become a destructive force with devastating consequences.

Letting Go of Anger explores simple, actionable strategies that will help listeners diffuse their negative reactions and become more mindful and emotionally literate adults.

In this audiobook you will learn:

  • How to understand the underlying causes and reactions associated with anger
  • To think deeply about what you are experiencing and resist the “reaction” impulse
  • How to ensure that your angry feelings are expressed productively and considerately, to avoid unnecessary conflict
  • What lifestyle changes will support your well-being and reduce anger responses
  • Simple strategies for relaxing your mind and body while angry, to de-escalate the situation
  • Why it is important to take ownership of your feelings and express them honestly to others.
  • And more!

Becoming familiar with the behavioral science and developmental psychology behind our most primitive emotions will empower listeners to understand their anger more deeply, and take back control from a reactionary experience that often makes us (wrongly) feel powerless.

John Ward is a professor, motivational speaker and author, and holds two degrees in psychology and neuroscience. He has devoted his life to helping people become their best selves both in the classroom and in countless books.

Great book

I kept listening over and over, it’s a great little book. I wish there was a more in depth study book so I could go deep and find my triggers. Definitely recommend it to everyone needing some piece of mind

Read this book.

The book won't tell you what to do with your emotions or feeling of anger because the whole point is thoughts create feelings, so change your thoughts and your feelings will also change by default. How do you change your thoughts? Read the book and you'll find out.

I love she comes at her topics from so many angles

Easy read with practical easy steps. Great overview of anger, the what, the why, and the how: what is it, why it occurs,, how it affects yourself and others, why its a concern (or normal) and how to deal in a easy to understand compassionate quick read.

Learning book.

The author provides multiple paths to mindfulness, as a tool to control anger. If one path does not seem to work well, there are alternate paths to try. The author also covers multiple situations, not just a blanket "emotional intelligence" or "mindfulness".

Found this book helpful.

Very clearly written, easy to read. Though the author addresses anger problems with practical advice and insights, she also occasionally seems to compassionately acknowledge the struggles of human nature.

Great book.

his will help, if you’re prone to getting angry easily when provoked, AND you’re willing to think rationally for a moment before losing it.
