Revue de presse

"His wealth of experience is evident throughout...packed with practical exercises, easy to read checklists and real-life case studies" (Big Issue)

Présentation de l'éditeur

We all feel angry at times. It can be an uncomfortable emotion, yet it is almost a taboo subject. We get very little guidance in our culture on how to deal with it, and the guilt or violence that may accompany it.

Here is the perfect book to help anyone from 16-75 years old to beat their anger - or help anyone else to do the same. Aimed at parents, families, young adults and teachers, social and youth workers, health care professionals, managers, customer service departments, psychotherapists and counsellors - there cannot be many men or women who have not felt uncomfortable when they are angry, and wondered what to do about it.

The British Association of Anger Management (BAAM) is considered the leading specialist organization in the field. Founded by Mike Fisher in 2001, its mailing list reaches approximately 10,000 people a month and it receives enquiries from all over the world, and from all walks of life.

Beating Anger is endorsed by BAAM, and used on all its anger management courses. It explains what anger is, what triggers it, the various different types of anger - and its substitutes - how to heal emotional aggression, and the 8 Golden Rules of Anger Management.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 good but inadequate, like all anger books 2 décembre 2012
Par D&D - Publié sur Amazon.com
This book offers good explanations and exercises, with emphasis on the need to take personal responsibility for and ownership of our anger and other emotions. There are good techniques on dealing with it in a positive non-confrontational manner. Unfortunately, all anger books - even the best ones - are inadequate. I have read many books on the so-called "negative" emotions and most helpful for me were "Nonviolent Communication: a Language of Life" by Marshall B. Rosenberg (his Center for Nonviolent Communication trains in North America, Europe & UK, Malaysia and India) and "To Love is to be Happy With" by Barry Kaufman, who founded the wonderful Options Institute in the U.S.

Also, I have done a huge amount of "work" on myself for well over 2 decades yet all this wholehearted work did not result in much success with anger. Eventually - after more than TWO decades of wasted time and money (lots of time, lots of money), I discovered uncontrollable anger is very strongly linked to health. ALL anger-advice books overlook insufficient adrenals, yet one of the MAJOR symptoms is constant irritation. (That's why this book gets it more right than most - adrenal fatigue definitely makes you fragile as well as a lot of other things, like trouble sleeping and/or difficulty getting to sleep, overreacting/defensive, fatigue and/or jittery, lightheaded getting out of bed, and much more.)

Finally, after decades of mis-diagnoses (very common, I have learned) serious low thyroid AND low adrenal function was identified, but only because I was finally lucky enough to come across "Stop the Thyroid Madness" (both website and book are excellent on both thyroid and adrenal issues). I had to arrange and pay for my own lab tests (the so-called "gold standard" tests are wrong!) and then (because most doctors, including endos, really do not understand) find a truly knowledgeable physician through patient recommendations on the "Stop the Thyroid Madness" website.

After a few months of PROPER treatment my anger/irritability simply melted away! (slowly)

The more stress you have had in your lifetime, the more likely you are to have adrenal issues (I had a high-powered job for 20 years but then had to limp through the last ten years before I was able to retire by going part-time - which of course meant low quality work at much lower pay). So, here are some FREE home/self tests for identifying struggling adrenals:

Take and compare two blood pressure readings--one while lying down and one while standing. Rest for five minutes while sitting before taking the first reading. Stand up and immediately take the blood pressure again. If either blood pressure reading is lower after standing, suspect adrenal gland problems, and more specifically, an aldosterone issue-another adrenal hormone. The degree to which the blood pressure drops while standing is often proportionate to the degree of hypoadrenalism. (Normal adrenal function will raise your BP on the standing reading in order to push blood to the brain.) It can be wise to do this test both in the morning and in the evening, since you can appear normal one time, and not another. (BP monitors are available cheaply on Amazon)

Let someone shine a bright light your way. Do you find yourself very sensitive and uncomfortable with the bright light (similarly with bright summer sunshine)? That could be a sign of adrenal fatigue. And this can also be true if you have searing headaches along with the sensitivity.

This is called the Pupil test and primarily tests your levels of aldosterone, another adrenal hormone. You need to be in a darkened room with a mirror and a flashlight/ torch/ penlight. Do this later in the day as results are more reliable then. From the side (not the front), shine a bright light towards your pupils and hold it for about a minute. Carefully observe the pupil. With healthy adrenals (and specifically, healthy levels of aldosterone), your pupils will constrict, and will stay small the entire time you shine the light from the side. In adrenal fatigue, the pupil will get small, but within 30 seconds, it will soon enlarge again or obviously flutter in its attempt to stay constricted.

Why? Because adrenal insufficiency can also result in low aldosterone, which causes a lack of proper amounts of sodium and an abundance of potassium. This imbalance causes the sphincter muscles of your eye to be weak and to dilate in response to light. (Note: there are over 50 sphincters in the body and stress incontinence caused by adrenal fatigue is difficult to fix just with pelvic floor exercises.)

Take your temp 3 times a day, starting three hours after you wake up, and every three hours after that, to equal three temps. (If you have eaten or exercised right before it's time to take your temp, wait 20 more minutes.) Then average them for that day. Do this for AT LEAST 5 days. If your averaged temp is fluctuating from day to day more than .2 to .3 (with a lean towards .2), you need adrenal support. Again, your daily average temps should lean towards the .2 when on enough cortisol for your needs.

If your temps are fluctuating but overall low, you need both adrenal and thyroid support. If your temps are fluctuating but averaging 98.6, you just need adrenal support. If it is steady but low, you need thyroid support and adrenals are likely fine.
(mercury thermometers are the most accurate but very difficult to buy nowadays, next best are liquid thermometers, then digital thermometers - which can be wrong by up to 1degreeF. Do NOT use ear thermometers.)

This is the easiest home test for adrenal deficiency, from Wilson's excellent 2001 book (still a classic) called "Adrenal Fatigue": all you need for this test is a ball point pen. Drag the dull end of a pen across your abdomen for about six inches (my guess would be about 2 fingers' width above or below your belly button) but don't press overly hard or scratch the skin. If your adrenals are functioning normally or are only mildly affected, the mark will turn from white to red within about 10 seconds. If your adrenals are fatigued, however, the line will widen and stay white for about 2 minutes. This test isn't terribly accurate as it only shows up on about 40 per cent of people with low adrenal function. It generally tests positive only if the adrenal fatigue is fairly severe.

The outer cortex of our adrenal glands produces the hormones cortisol, aldosterone, testosterone, DHEA, DHEAS, androstenedione and estrogens. Dysfunctional adrenals equates first to combined highs and lows of cortisol that are not normal, then to low cortisol (and sometimes low aldosterone as well as imbalances in other hormones). The Stop the Thyroid Madness website has much free practical information on adrenal issues as well as low thyroid. If you want a lab test, to confirm any self-test results, the most useful - and most accurate - is the 24-hour saliva test which is not very expensive (don't let your doctor insist on the unreliable blood test or urine test).

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Exsactly what I needed 6 août 2011
Par Instinct - Publié sur Amazon.com
If you start noticing yourself getting upset/angry/depressed over things that don't bother others, if you're worried about how you're behaviour is effecting your relationships, if you're wondering why you're loved ones are pissed off with you when you've done nothing wrong, if you're just fed up of being fed up and want to make lifelong positive changes in your life then read this book!
It strips every type of conflict down to its roots and teaches you how to express your anger healthily because one way or another, your anger will find a way out, weather you let yourself loose control or repress it so that it has to find passive ways of escaping.
There should be lessons in school dedicated to this book because so many of us grow up without learning how to cope with such a volatile emotion.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Good resource to have on hand 13 janvier 2013
Par Seeker - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
After reading this book, I realized anger was not my main issue. However, I am holding onto it because I believe it contains a lot of good and practical advice for those who struggle with this problem. There are some eye opening explanations in it for why people behave the way they do, and, as I said, it's a good resource to have on hand in case there is someone along your way who needs help with this issue.
