"This is an excellent book for understanding and coping with the various scenarios that spark our anger. Gary Chapman's decision to read his own work, based on stories gleaned from his years of individual and couples counseling, is a strong one because it lends an intimate tone to this sensitive subject. Chapmans warm voice and use of colloquial expression make listeners feel that they could be sitting down with the good doctor himself. Chapman artfully sheds his reputation as an international author and speaker and allows listeners to connect with him and with the startling fact that anger, perhaps even more than love, is a universal human emotion."
