Anger is a cruel master. If you struggle even a little with anger, you know how it feels to get mad too easily. To lash out at someone you love. To hold onto frustration. You might even notice others seem uneasy around you.

You know anger is hurting your life, but you don’t know how to fix it.

There is hope. When you understand why you get angry and what to do about it, you can change the course of your life for the better. In Anger: Taming a Powerful Emotion, counselor Gary Chapman shares surprising insights about anger, its effect on relationships, and how to overcome it. His advice and real-life examples will help you:

  • Understand yourself better
  • Overcome shame, denial, and bitterness
  • Discern good anger from bad anger
  • Manage anger and conflict constructively 
  • Make positive life changes
  • Let go of your grudges and resentment
  • Help others (like your children) deal with anger
    and more

Whether your anger is quiet or explosive, if it’s clouding your judgment and hurting your relationships, it needs to go. Learn to handle anger in healthy ways, starting today. Gary Chapman is wise and empathetic, and he'll help you turn over a new leaf.

Editorial Reviews

"Gary Chapman, best known for 5 Love Languages, will now be known for his superb book on Anger. All of us deal with anger. Anger can be thrown outward on everybody and everything or pushed inward mostly doing inner damage but eventually seeping out sideways and doing damage to others as well. Boundaries are crossed, relationships damaged and enormous stress wreck havoc within and throughout our lives. Chapman reveals the how and the why and more importantly the what now and where do I go in practical ways to tame this emotion. This should be in every small group, Sunday school, or Wed night study starting up this fall. Bravo!!"

"In a world where anger is largely glorified and we all have come to accept it as not only a part of life, but a means to protect oneself, Mr. Chapman has clearly highlighted the way out of the cage this self destructive emotion holds so many of us in. Rather than ignoring it, this book shows you how to recognize it, deal with it, and no longer be controlled by it or our situations. Though this book does teach you about anger, it also frees yourself to enjoy the rest of your life."

    This review was written for Anger: Taming a Powerful Emotion, updated.
    The purpose of this book, overall, is to pinpoint and examine the purpose and origin of anger. It is with this in mind that a person will then be able to control their anger.

    Anger is defined as "a strong passion or emotion of displeasure, and usually antagonism, excited by a sense of injury of insult". This illustrates that anger is a response, fed by feelings of disappointment, hurt, rejection, and embarrassment. It is a response that causes us irritation, frustration, pain, and other displeasure.

    One common mistake that people make is trying not to be angry at all. We bottle it up, which just causes explosions later. However, Chapman emphasizes that anger comes from the very nature God, as God experiences anger 375 times in the Old Testament alone. Anger comes from our concern for justice and rightness.

    Chapman uses examples from his own experiences and from what he has witnessed as a counselor. The main outcome of this book is for the reader to learn how to make anger productive, and the biggest thing, how to keep from sinning when we are angry. Anger itself is NOT sin.

    What I didn't like about this book is super dry and expository. A lot of the dialogue was unnecessary and just was annoying rather than adding to the stories he was telling.

    I gave this book 3.5/5 stars. I would recommend this book for someone who is struggling with anger, particularly within a marriage.

    This review was written for Anger: Taming a Powerful Emotion, updated.
    I finished reading Anger: Taming a Powerful Emotion by Gary Chapman several days ago and I am still thinking about it. In Anger, Chapman establishes anger as a sign of a deeper issue rather than a sin. His describes anger as evidence that we are made in Gods image; it demonstrates that we still have some concern for justice and righteousness in spite of our fallen state. This description removes some of the guilt and shame that has been tied to anger, preventing people from admitting and working through their anger.

    In chapter 4, Chapman differentiates between definitive and distorted anger and he revisits these two types of anger frequently throughout the book. This allows the reader to identify various circumstances that led to anger, and determine whether the anger was definitive or distorted. He also differentiates between explosive and implosive responses to anger. Although one may seem preferable, Chapman emphasizes the danger of both reactions.

    Throughout Anger, Chapman uses real stories to illustrate the principles he teaches. He also addresses confronting angry people, forgiving others, and processing anger that is directed at others, God, or self.

    I think Anger is a well-written and crucial read for a society that is increasingly quick-tempered, impatient, and, ultimately, angry. Chapman provides helpful suggestions for recognizing and working through anger, as well as tips for living or working with people who are angry. I highly recommend Anger to anyone who is looking for a challenging personal or small-group study.
