About the Book

Anger, nowadays, seems to be everywhere. It is deadly because it spares no one — no age or no socio-cultural group. It is a global phenomenon and getting further worse. Since it is inside of one-self, first it burns us, then our loved ones and finally the society. In return, one only gets mental agony and physical illnesses, especially young adults who find themselves in a stressful situation as they approach higher classes/studies. Pressure from peers and family members leads to frustration which further translates into anger.

This book attempts to explain – What is anger? How does it arise? And finally, how can one manage it? The book may help in learning skills derived from scriptures, philosophers, scholars and advances in modern day science to facilitate in leading a peaceful, productive and quality life.
