(This) very readable book (...) is clearly laid out with diagrams, food for thought sections and highlighted at the end of the chapters of the key concepts covered... Throughout the book there are handouts which cover a variety of aspects of the discussion... I found that this book also provides some interesting discussion points and reflections which would be valuable for practitioners to reflect upon their own experiences for practitioners to reflect upon their own experiences of anger... The key strength of the book is in recognising alongside our clients that feeling angry is OK but it's what you do with it that matters... It's definitely a book to return to and be explored further especially with others within a support group too. -- Tiffany Louise Allen, PTUK Accredited Play Therapist, Clinical Supervisor and Editor * Play for Life *
