15. September 1989
"This landmark book" (San Francisco Chronicle) dispels the common myths about the causes and uses of anger -- for example, that expressing anger is always good for you, that suppressing anger is always unhealthy, or that women have special "anger problems" that men do not. Dr. Carol Tavris expertly examines every facet of that fascinating emotion -- from genetics to stress to the rage for justice.
Fully revised and updated, Anger: The Misunderstood Emotion now includes:
* A new consideration of biological politics: Should testosterone or PMS excuse rotten tempers or aggressive actions?
* The five conditions under which anger is likely to be effective -- and when it's not.
* Strategies for solving specific anger problems -- chronic anger, dealing with difficult people, repeated family battles, anger after divorce or victimization, and aggressive children.

Von dr.
It has been sixteen years since Carol Tavris first published this book, and she deserves credit for focusing attention on the terrific confusion in American society surrounding the phenomenon of anger. Dr. Tavris draws on her training and expertise as a social psychologist (not a clinical psychologist or psychotherapist) to presumably enhance the reader's understanding of anger: that undeniably most misunderstood human emotion. In so doing, she attempts to debunk some common assumptions about anger, e.g., that frustration causes anger. But in making her argument against the classic "frustration-aggression hypothesis," Tavris is guilty of cause-and-effect reasoning of the most simplistic, mechanistic and concrete kind. While frustration surely does not always lead to anger in the form of a reflexively automatic, knee-jerk response, and certainly not to aggressive or violent behavior, Tavris ignores the fact that different individuals have learned different ways! of dealing with frustration and anger-- which could explain some of the inconsistencies she finds in the research upon which this theory is based. For example, people who, feeling frustrated, crave ice-cream or head to the nearest multiplex may well feel angry about being frustrated, but be unaware of it; that is to say, they might be unconscious of their anger. The proper inquiry thus turns to how that specific person deals with feelings of frustration and anger--i.e., consciously or unconsciously--instead of whether frustration automatically "causes" anger, or, for that matter, whether anger "causes" aggressive behavior.

2.0 von 5 Sternen All the old norms and myths in a new package 19. Februar 1998
Von Ein Kunde
This book is extremely well written and contains many fascinating little tidbits of info on history, culture, religion and philosophy, but it was ultimately a bad book on anger. Anger is indeed the "misunderstood emotion" and Dr. Tavris understands it least of all. For her it is a mere social and/or political construct that is bad and can be programmed away. Her attitude reminds me of that old Twilight Zone eppisode aboute the society where everyone had to think "happy thoghts" all the time because the dictator could read your mind and would do horrible things to you if you weren't sunny and joyful. It seems obvious to me that the feelings in the rich spectrum of human emotions are fundamentally good because they were given to us by nature to enhance our survival if used properly. "Dark" emotions such as anger are tools to protect the self and the soul against physical or spiritual predators. Certainly many people overemphasize anger, but they are usually people who have been hurt a lot, so their defense systems have been programmed to be over-active. In her zeal against this emotion, Dr. Tavris glorifies cultures and religions that share her distaste for expressions of anger. Two of her favorites tend to be the early Christians (before the converion of the barbarians) and the traditional Japanese. Admittedly both of these groups had good traits, but they obviosly suffered from their rigid emotional control. For instance, they turned their anger against themselves. Frankly, I would rather live in a culture that tolerates a little too much swearing and bickering than cultures where the highest expression of virtue is to be fed to lions or to impale oneself on a sword.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A serious book worth reading 23. Juni 1997
Von Ein Kunde
Dr. Tavris has based this book on serious research on the subject of anger. She debunks many of the pop myths about the purpose of anger and helps the reader to understand the causes of expressed anger. Her central point is that anger is a self-reinforcing mechanism that does not have healthy outcomes in itself. She explains the physiological purpose and effects of anger, pointing out that we really don't need to be angry in our lives.

Instead she suggests various models and techniques to help understand what "sets us off" and how to manage anger. A number of situations are covered and illustrated by personal and clinical examples.

This is not a prescription for a quick fix for quick tempers - while Dr. Tavris is sympathetic about the many reasons why we get angry, she avoids simplistic behavioral techniques as well as overly introspective ones

5.0 von 5 Sternen A very well-done book on an important topic 3. Januar 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Tavris has authored a fine book on an important topic. She is a social psychologist which is a blessing because it allows her to review research rather than focus on her own navel (a.k.a. "clinical experience"). She does a fine job of refuting the frustration agression hypothesis even though it still seems impossible for people to accept the reality that individuals create their own anger and circumstances (such as traffic) have little to do with their emotional reactions to events. Tey to ignore the silly psychoabble of some of the other reviewers...probably Freudians anyway!

Von D. Hicks
I first read this book about eight years ago. Though some of Ms. Tavris' analysis is suspect, the vast majority is well-founded and accurate IF YOU APPROACH IT WITH AN OPEN MIND. Unfortunately, simply implying that anger is a learned, self-controllable response provokes a very angry reaction in many people (see other reviews) that makes it hard to get the point across. Tavris has a lot to say. Unfortunately, very few people will listen.
