The Gift of Anger (eBook)
The Gift of Anger presents a radical approach to the concept of anger: instead of viewing anger as a problem, therapist and anger expert Marcia Cannon explains how it can be used as a gift and a cue for personal growth. Appropriately used, anger can help readers explore their core beliefs, strengthen their relationships with others, and fulfill their unmet needs.
