Discusses the causes and effects of anger and provides advice on how to control and channel it. From the author: "Dear Friend: When I was a boy, I often got very angry. Some people told me to 'let all my anger out.' So I didn't hesitate to yell and scream, shake my fists, and stomp my feet! I let my anger out all right. But that kind of behavior got me into a lot of fights and arguments. It also got me into trouble at school and home. Now that I am an adult, I still get angry. But I don't get as angry as often as I used to, and I don't stay angry as long. I have learned how to control my behavior when I'm angry. I no longer get into fights, and I don't get into as many arguments. I get along much better with other people, and I stay out of trouble. That makes me a much happier person. It is important that you understand your own anger and learn how to deal with it in positive ways. So I wrote this book just for you. Your Friend, Adolph Moser"
But we wouldn't think it was funny if we saw the president of the United States on national television, and he was jumping up and down, yelling and screaming, and beating his fists against a podium. We would probably say: "Even if the president is angry, he should be able to control his BEHAVIOR better than that!"Kind of interesting that these words were written more than a quarter of a century ago.
