Grounded in psychological science, the strategies in this book are simple yet surprisingly effective. Try them for yourself—and for the person you love.

Editorial Reviews

"One of the best books I have read on how to repair destructive patterns of communication in an intimate relationship. Dr. Nay's practical, step-by-step instruction firmly supports readers who want to work their way back from ugly fights that undermine their love and commitment. I was truly inspired by this book."--Pepper Schwartz, PhD, author of Love Between Equals

"There are lots of books for angry people, but too few for people who have to deal with someone else's anger! This is a wise and practical guide to one of the thorniest problems in couple relationships. Dr. Nay shows how to change your own response to your partner's anger and feel better about yourself."--William J. Doherty, PhD, author of Take Back Your Marriage
 
"I loved this book. It's a powerful tool for understanding anger and its effects on relationships. I have applied some of the techniques and suggestions offered by Dr. Nay in my own personal life and have found them to be very effective."--Sandra, Maryland
