Incorporating recent scientific data and the methods developed in the authors' anger-reduction workshops, this practical guide explains how to recognize anger points and control them using seventeen proven, successful strategies, from deflecting anger to improving relationships to adopting a more positive attitude.

About the Author:

Redford Williams, M.D., is director of behavioral research at Duke University Medical Center, professor of psychiatry, and associate professor of medicine. He interned at Yale University School of Medicine and did two years of research at the National Institutes of Health. He is the author of The Trusting Heart as well as dozens of scientific papers.

From Library Journal:

This clearly written book is a continuation and elaboration of Redford Williams's earlier work, The Trusting Heart (Times Bks., 1989), in which he described recent scientific evidence linking hostile thinking and behavior to cardiovascular risk. In Anger Kills , the authors convincingly describe the damage that cynicism, anger, and aggression can do to personal health and to interpersonal relationships. A brief "hostility" questionnaire is followed by 17 proven techniques for changing these insidiously deleterious personality traits. The strategies are straightforward and practical. Follow even some of them and, at the least, you will improve the quality of your relationships. You may even prolong your life. A promotional tour should ensure high demand. Highly recommended for public libraries and wherever interest warrants.
