“Williams and Barlow offer a very useful manual for the practitioner to understand the many facets of anger and to remedy the personal and interpersonal distress that it can cause. Their book does a splendid job of teaching basic concepts, and provides valuable tools for clinical practitioners who may otherwise struggle in dealing with the obstinate problem of unregulated anger.”
