Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Don The Idea Guy Snyder | 2/20/2014

    " I literally just finished reading this book and its message is still ricocheting around in my brain. I keep thinking... "should I just read this book over-and-over all year long?" I know that even though I've already come away with a shift in perspective and plenty of new lessons to apply, there are dozens of others that I really need to go back and explore between the pages of this book. There is just the right mix of modern and ancient examples of how to overcome your anger and conquer the stress that it brings. I'm torn between lending it to a friend who I know could benefit from its message or simply diving back in and reading it again for myself. Perhaps I'll buy them their own copy and do both... "

    " I found the book to be a quick yet insightful read. One point in the book is that anger arises from an unmet demand. This idea had never crossed my mind. I have zero background in Buddhism but I was still able to gain some new insight. This is a book that I will re-read in a couple months. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laura Jean | 1/26/2014

    " absolutely excellent and totally perspective changing thus far. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vitor Moreira | 1/16/2014

    " For me the book worked as purposed. Schaff and Susan really teach you some small budhist tricks that make you feel a bit more peacefull and greatfull for the live we have. Even though it's not the final solution, this handbook it might give you a little help. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Zen Meditation | 1/12/2014

    " A Buddhist examination of the psychology of anger. Scheff does a remarkable job of documenting (literally, for he approaches the subject somewhat empirically) the causes and subsequent effects of anger while delicately outlining how to, not remedy, but avoid such instances entirely. Recommended. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Fritz | 12/25/2013

    " helpful to think most transgressors against me would have transgressed against someone else standing in my place. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Diana | 12/6/2013

    " Really enjoyed this book--I'd give it 3.5 stars. Really got me thinking about the things beyond our control that irk us day-to-day and how to deal with anger in a positive way. But I must say, the voice/accent the guy reading the book used for the Dalai Lama had me LOL'ing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dennis Schvejda | 12/4/2013

    " A book I should have read years ago, since I don't have much to be angry about today, save a few aggressive highway drivers and nutty politicians! Well-written, a worthwhile read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 MJ | 3/9/2012

    " This is a wonderful book but most of the examples see more appropriate for men than women. That said, it was excellent. Wish my type A spouse would read it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alison | 3/13/2011

    " If someone stole your parking spot, you'd be mad. If a cow wandered down the lane and took your space, you'd laugh. With all the fighting going on in the world, and an election season to survive, this book was a great reminder that anger is a choice. "
