Everyone can easily identify with this emotion called ANGER. We see it at home, in the office, in school, on public transport, on the roads, at the shopping malls, in sports stadiums, in the marketplace, in restaurants, etc. Anger is probably one of the commonest, and can also become one of the most dangerous emotions. Religious scholars, philosophers, poets, psychologists, psychiatrists, etc. have deliberated much about it. Some believe anger must be controlled—it is wrong to show it. Some believe anger must not be controlled— it is unnatural and harmful to do that. Others believe anger cannot be controlled—it is impossible to do it. Yet, others believe anger can be controlled. But how can we effectively tame this distressing and dangerous emotion before it gets out of control?
Yes, many of us are struggling with anger; others suffer silently. We feel ashamed, guilty and incapacitated by it. This book discusses this emotion including its functions, suggests how we can recognise it early and addresses ways of managing it appropriately.
“Dr Ko has astutely put together this book to help its readers understand anger better, including the components, causes, types, impacts, and an astonishing toolkit of coping with this rather volatile emotion… I am sure people who read this book will benefit from it tremendously.”
