Working with Anger is a wonderful, wise, and life-changing book.

If you are looking for a practical guide to overcome anger and live with greater tolerance, love, and forgiveness, I highly recommend this book.

Thubten Chodron is one of our freshest voices of the Dharma. Echoing the clarity of H.H. the Dalai Lama’s own teachings on forgiveness and healing, in Working With Anger she brings us helpful, practical insights from her deep training in Himalayan wisdom traditions. Written in clear, user-friendly language, this superb handbook offers us concrete strategies for dealing effectively with the painful afflictions of anger, criticism, and betrayal in contemporary life situations. Can we ever tire of such necessary, good advice?

Presented with clarity, wit, anecdotes, and examples, the material is easy to read and to absorb. If you have an anger problem (who doesn’t?) or are dealing with someone who does (who isn’t?), you will be glad you found this book.
—Light of Consciousness
Combining the teachings drawn from Shantideva and the lojong teachings of Tibetan Buddhism with present-day examples, Chodron presents a compelling and accessible guide for practitioners in the Western Dharma community.
Here we have a psychology that leads to true liberation … What I like here is that this work is not just about moralizing and sermonizing, but gives practical, useable techniques to neutralize anger … It has a clarity and simplicity that can only come from someone who actually lives what she writes. Highly recommendable.
