I reserve the right to take my rating down to 4 Stars if I ever get angry again.
I don t understand the other reviewers who praise the way this book is written It is very slow and repetitive, and it uses multiple metaphors in one paragraph when none would do I was already becoming turned off when the book started talking about mazel and how all the challenging situations in your life are your destiny because they re needed for your development, and then I hit the super religious chapter about trusting in God I m sure that is useful to some readers, but not to me There s no magical force of fate that deliberately matches you up with challenges designed to promote your personal development, and I don t believe in a higher being so there s nothing there to trust.
Actually, speaking of trust, I should have trusted the wariness I felt upon reading the black and white thinking title Never Get Angry Again Anger is a normal human emotion It s not wrong to feel angry Some of the ways people may deal with it are not desirable, but it s impossible for any emotionally balanced, healthy human to never feel anger Any book that promises such a thing is unrealistic.
Mixing in some stuff about God and religion in this book was a deal breaker for me.
