Summary

Never Get Angry Again, by New York Times and internationally best-selling author David J. Lieberman, is a comprehensive, holistic look at the underlying emotional, physical, and spiritual causes of anger and a practical guide to what the listener can do to gain perspective.

David J. Lieberman understands that a change in perspective is all that is needed to help keep from flying off the handle. In Never Get Angry Again, he reveals how to see anger through a comprehensive, holistic lens, illuminates the underlying emotional, spiritual, and physical components of anger, and gives listeners simple, practical tools to snuff out anger before it even occurs.

Take a deep breath and count to 10. Meditate. Visualize your happy place. You've probably heard all of these anger management techniques and more from friends, family, and experts, but somehow they miss the mark when it comes to coping with the complex emotion of anger.

Let's face it: If anger-management techniques were effective, you wouldn't be listening to this audiobook. These clumsy attempts to maintain calmness are usually futile and sometimes emotionally draining. The fact is, either something bothers us (causing anxiety, frustration, or anger), or it doesn't. A state of calm is better accomplished by not becoming agitated in the first place. When we fight the urge to blow up or melt down, we fight against our own nature.

Talks about God, utter nonsense!

I frequently had to tell the narrator to f*** off. What’s God got to do with it?!mentions the soul a lot. Awful. Made me very angry.

Too religious

Starts off great! But then goes all religious. Felt completely let down by the book. Should have been clearer that it was a religious book.

This is a religious book posing as a scientific book.

This book is annoying and shallow. It pumps out platitudes as if the complex and sometimes compromising experience of being a human being can be “solved” with a few choice instructions. It is patriarchal in tone. It is not particularly compassionate. It treats anger as a problem that can be fixed. It describes its own advice - which it is necessarily giving out to people the author has never met and knows nothing of - as “fool proof” and “proven”. Arrogant and trite. Do not buy.

Way too religious

Was expecting psychology and got a religious book instead. Halfway through starts with biblical references and tell the reader how God will help them.
Not what I expected and not in the slightest but helpful

Not for me

Started off being very interesting and relatable but then the writer starts linking everything to “God”.
I don’t believe in god, I can’t rely on God... book returned to the shelf.

This is a religious self help book and should state that clearly in the title.

Narrator grates!

Tried hard to continue with this book but the narrator's voice was too irritating! The content started off well but then moved into talking about God and linking everthing to him - far too religious for me. Like other reviewers, it simply made me angry and defeated the whole object! Gave up and have cancelled membership as most books I have tried through Audible have incredibly lrritarting narrators sadly. Not for me.

Christian propaganda alert!

There is a point in this book where it becomes clear that god is the only way you can get past anger. Great for christians, not for me.

This book should be categorized in religion.

I was very surprised at how religious the story was. It was not at all marketed as religious but it was overwhelmingly distracting throughout the first half at which I could no longer listen. I wouldn’t have minded or noticed a couple comments but there was constant reference to scriptures and a constant message of “trusting in god to make your anger go away”. I was surprised because there was no mention of this in the description, and had I known it was a religious book I would have known it was not for me before buying it. So I wish it was categorized correctly. Boo

It was good until...

I liked it up until the author stated it was impossible to move beyond anger without accepting God and having faith. I don't think a belief in a sky daddy is going to do much in any fashion to make you a better person, let alone help with anger management.

Principles on how to lead an authentic life.

This is more a book about how to lead an authentic, meaningful, happy, fulfilling life, in accordance with the dictates of our conscience so that anger never arises at all. It covers a diverse range of principles and useful practices along this line. There are some useful anger management techniques as well. Be warned that the author does assume a belief in God and the soul but there is still some very useful material if this is an issue for you. Although the audiobook was narrated very well, there is so much material here that it would also be helpful to get a printed copy of the book.

Very Worthwhile Listen

I don’t know what happened to the author between writing “How to Get Anyone to do Anything” and this book, but I’m glad for it. From the outset, he goes far deeper and more introspective than his original titles. Instead of manipulating other people or situations, the author asks of to take personal responsibility for how we feel and the honest circumstances causing those feelings. Then he provides a rich assortment of tested strategies for resolving (not managing) our anger.

Fantastically insightful and powerful

I’ve read some other listeners comments about his mentions of God or a higher power. This should not put you off to this book. Any mention of this was more for the purpose of understanding the fact that we are not in control of everything. It was certainly not a strong theme within the book. This book focuses on extensive clinical research and data driven solutions according to the authors interpretation of these studies. I found the book insightful, real, powerful, and solution oriented. This is a great read for every person on earth let alone those of us with anger issues. This is also a fantastic read it for clinicians and those who have friends and family with anger issues. Highly recommend it.

The best book ever!

It has made me reassess how I approached things in life. Love this book. Will listen to it again when I feel I am derailing. “Expect nothing, accept / appreciate everything.” It’s powerful.

Great Book

There is some religion mixed into this book but not much. I really learned a lot about why anger occurs and how to manage anger in new ways.
I enjoyed this book so much I listened to it over and over again.

great book!

loved this book!
At first, it wS downright frustrating with all the groundwork in the first ten chapters. As I read on, it all came together and made sense.
Worth the time!
