Anger: Wisdom for Cooling the Flames - Thich Nhat Hanh

Nobel Peace Prize nominee Thich Nhat Hanh tackles one of the strongest human emotions - anger. The Vietnamese monk attempts to put complex ideas into simple packages, and in the book teaches that in the end, to be angry is to suffer, and that it is our responsibility to lessen our own suffering. Our anger begins and ends with ourselves. Many of his suggestions go against some of our popular ideas of anger management. For instance, Hanh says that actions such as punching a pillow, rather than expressing and reducing our anger causes us to actually rehearse our anger.
