Good morning. This is your wake-up call. Your life is a constant struggle. No matter how hard you work, things aren’t improving. You’re not happy. You haven’t been happy for so long that you don’t know what happy is anymore. And worst of all, you don’t have enough energy to do anything about it, because other people are stealing it from you. This energy is more vital and more useful than gas or electricity: it’s anger.

When you learn how to master your anger, you can avoid ever being a victim again. Your anger can help you to get everything you want. Ultimately, your anger can help you to become truly happy. But first, you have to learn to master your anger. If you don’t master your anger, it will master you, and you will continue to be victimized and manipulated. You will waste more energy, and feel less happy. In other words, your life will continue exactly as it is now. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

Follow the three-step Anger Mastery Process to: Take control of your life and stop being a victim. Reclaim your energy and use it to create the life you deserve. Protect yourself from the pain of loss by becoming truly Safe. Stop wasting your time on distractions and focus on what really matters to you. Become completely happy.

This book annoyed me. I went into it with high-ish hopes that I could learn something from it. I would love to learn how to have more power, or at least feel like I have more power, and happier. What I got was an anti-rich, anti-governement rant that told me to exercise.

There were a few interesting points about victim consciousness and how moods have varying power levels. But there wasn’t anything instructional about these sections.

The book seemed like it was meant to be humorous, but it fell flat time after time. It just wasn’t funny.

  1. That's too bad. Have you read Bryan Cohen's book, The Post College Guide to Happiness? I really liked that one.
