From Library Journal:

Nay (Georgetown Univ. Sch. of Medicine) is an expert on anger management whose Taking Charge of Anger is a significant contribution to the literature. His new book addresses the more challenging matter of maintaining one's boundaries when confronting displays of anger by a significant other. He devotes much of this helpful book to educating readers about the manifestation and impact of anger within relationships. Most significantly, he provides advice about recognizing destructive dynamics and breaking dysfunctional patterns. With workbook exercises, this title is designed to be a practical guide for the lay reader, but it is also an excellent resource for mental health professionals, who could learn from it and also "prescribe" it for their clients. Nay's concluding chapter, "Coping with the Expected and Preparing for the Unknown," is particularly valuable in that it suggests strategies for dealing with the inevitable "pushback" that readers will experience when establishing firm boundaries. VERDICT A welcome complement to Carol Tavris's definitive Anger: The Misunderstood Emotion; indispensable.-Lynne F. Maxwell, Villanova Univ. Sch. of Law Lib., PA (c) Copyright 2010.
