Theodore Isaac Rubin's The Angry Book-Fighting With Anger.

When I was dealing with "inappropriate" anger (over-reacting to a situation)I read this book to help me. This author spoke about deep seated anger that was never resolved; in my case from childhood abuse. He said that this unspoken anger can "accumulate" so that when you might get angry for some small thing - all this "old" anger comes out in an over-reaction

Don't get even -- get mad, and get over it! When your love life is boring, maybe you don't fight enough? When sex leaves a person cold, is frozen anger the problem? If you work too much, eat too much, drink too much, is it because you are afraid to get mad? Did you ever think of your anger as something constructive? When you lose your temper honestly, it can be good for you. In this perennially bestselling book, eminent psychiatrist and bestselling author Dr. Theodore Isaac Rubin shows how one of the most powerful human emotions can change your life. Suppressed or twisted anger can lead to anxiety, depression, insomnia, psychosomatic illness, alcoholism, frigidity, impotence, and downright misery. But understanding and releasing anger can lead to greater health, happiness, and emotional wholeness. Let Dr. Rubin show you how to be what you are: a human being.

This is an enlightening meditation on the nature of anger by an experienced psychiatrist, a rough guide. But ultimately it seems to raise more questions than it answers.

Anger is a very misunderstood and abused force in this world. The author ponders the nature of anger - how it needs expression and outlet before it poisons us from within. By presenting various case histories, he shows that our own style of dealing with anger may be shaped by our culture and upbringing, with lasting consequences to our relationships and health.

This is best approached as a kind of workbook, to be read in bite-size chunks and digested slowly. It is simply written and the chapters are brief. It is not a scientific treatise, its conclusions are not backed up with reams of studies, but it has a natural truth to it.

You will find your self-understanding grow as it prompts you to reflect on how you may have suppressed, mishandled or misdirected anger in the past.

But what are we supposed to do with anger? How do we express anger to family, to superiors, at work? in adverse situations where we risk much by expressing it? to grandparents, cousins, aunts and uncles? These are difficult questions and I don’t think the author goes far enough in providing answers. He gives a few useful hints and points us in the right direction, but I think the book would’ve benefited from more examples of how people successfully resolved such scenarios in real life.

I have been in therapy for years due to an abusive childhood, so when I received this book and saw how simply it was laid out and written I thought it would probably not have anything to teach me that I hadn't already learned. Still, I decided to flip through it. I ended up reading it all at once, I just couldn't put it down !
Yes, the book is very simply laid out and very simply and clearly written , and it has a great deal of very helpful information. I have struggled with feeling guilty and afraid every time I got angry, and this book helped me see that it's okay to be angry, in fact it can be an indication that you care about another person and want to preserve your relationship.

This book was a struggle to get through. Not because of the density of the reading, but more because it was just so dry. The chapters are small, which is good for conceptualization and quick reference, but the overall material was just difficult to relate to. The book has loads of information but most of it is explained in abstract theory style writing which is hard for some people to grasp. I bought this book hoping I could use it as a book to hand off to clients to spark some conversation but I just don't see a client reading it because it is just so freaking boring. About half way through this book I began to think of it as the "anger grocery list" because it was chapter after chapter of; anger concept number 134, anger concept number 135,....

This book does have some value in that if I wanted to look through the chapters and possibly have a client look at a single chapter to possibly spark some converstation, then I could see it being usefull. Unfortunately, other than that, it is not a book that has really bowled me over.

Anger is one of the only emotions people are afraid to express. Most are so scared to show anger that they've fooled themselves into believing they don't experience this common emotion at all. I was one of them. I thought I didn't have a problem with anger because I never lash out verbally or physically. But after reading "The Angry Book" by Theodore Rubin, I know different. My repressed anger has been seeping out in dozens of unhealthy ways my whole life.

Rubin says that we block anger in a couple of ways, the major one being, "playing the nice guy." The nice guy doesn't want to make waves or offend anyone with ugly displays of wrath. So his anger is repressed and stored in a reservoir, or "slush fund" as Rubin calls it. This "perverted" anger is then "twisted" into poisons. The poisons are so subtle and distorted that they are not recognized as anger at all. They seep out in many unhealthy ways: anxiety, depression, insomnia, eating disorders, drug abuse, and other more obvious ways such as gossiping, bullying, holding grudges, using the silent treatment in relationships, and road rage, just to name a few.

Rubin explains how expressing anger immediately, which allows it to dissipate quickly, is a fundamental part of healthy relationships. Anger is not hostility and hatred unless it is held in and perverted. Love and anger are not mutually exclusive. Acknowledging your anger and expressing it when it's felt allows the air to be cleared and corrections or reparations to be made if necessary. Anger is not appropriate or inappropriate no more than other emotions are justified or unjustified.

Rubin is also the author of "Compassion and Self-Hate", a book that I believe everyone should read, and likewise for "The Angry Book". He's good at getting to the point without being too self-helpy or touchy-feely. He's given me a lot of insight into my own behavior and I look forward to reading his other books.

Anger is a God given emotional reaction to a displeasing thought, story, event or action. Each individual has their genetic, experience and environment factors which combine to form their response to anger percipetating factors. This book helps one to look closely and better understand their own and other's anger. I purchased multiple copies in order to share them with men I coach in drug and alcohol rehabilitation.

I read this way back when it first came out and it's still relevant 20+ years later.
Yes you are. This helps!
