Rage, resentment, envy, jealousy, and hatred- these emotions seem to dominate our times. They rule our highways, our workplaces, our homes, and our hearts. In this provocative book of essays, writer Garret Keizer considers anger in all its baffling forms. Poignantly aware of his own temper, and of his ties to a religion that glorifies meekness, the author looks at anger as a paradox in our struggle to remain human in the midst of an infuriating world. Interweaving personal anecdotes, mythological stories, sacred texts, and Keizer's insightful observations, The Enigma of Anger will prove a welcome companion for anyone who has ever wrestled with wrath-or wished to make better use of it.

"We are lured into a book that is both intensely personal and achingly universal.... What might have been merely a 'how-to' on anger management is transformed into a literary achievement." ("Publishers Weekly," August 12, 2002)
