Book Review: The Anger Workbook


Title: The Anger Workbook: An Interactive Guide to Anger Management

Authors: Les Carter, Ph.D. and Frank Minirth, M.D.

Publisher: Thomas Nelson

Anger can be a difficult emotion to understand. From throwing things and derogatory language, to crying spells and “the silent treatment,” anger is an emotion that impacts everyone differently. The only commonality is that we all experience it at one point or another in our lives. So how does one utilize resources to overcome anger if it can be so wide-ranging? This was the question I had for some time until I read The Anger Workbook.

The Anger Workbook is a detailed exploration of anger that, although easy to understand, challenges readers to truly evaluate their anger and depend on God for a peaceful outcome. This quality of The Anger Workbook does not take away from the information being shared, but compliments it in a unique way. In fact, the incorporation of scriptural references throughout the book provide a subtle yet constant reminder that God is ever-present help.

For readers who subscribe to other belief systems, or none particular, the book still provides useful tools to self-assess one’s emotions without being preachy. Although there are many self-help books on this topic, I have never read one that incorporates the Bible so seamlessly.
