The Logic of Anger

In The Logic of Anger Douglas McManaman dissects and exhibits the many sources of anger. All of these are shown to originate in a single cause: the limitations and misuse of reason. The remedy is seen to lie in an awareness of these limitations and of our errors in reasoning, but above all in the power of forgiveness, vividly illustrated in the author’s own life.

McManaman addresses the pathology of anger, which disturbs so many lives, with the gentleness of a pastor and the lucidity of a careful thinker.
~ Graeme Hunter

The Logic of Anger is an antidote for uncontrolled anger. The logical, step-by-step approach is illustrated by vivid examples we can all relate to; a must-read for parents, teachers and, in fact, everyone.
~ Diane Wood

The Logic of Anger addresses a very common emotional state which is at the core of mankind’s suffering and a cause of depression, anxiety, physical malaise and worsening medical illness. Modern psychiatry’s reliance on pharmacological treatment has missed missed the target: McManaman shows that embracing forgiveness can heal a human being’s anguish and torment.
~ Steve Stokl
