"There are lots of books for angry people, but too few for people who have to deal with someone else's anger! This is a wise and practical guide to one of the thorniest problems in couple relationships. Dr. Nay shows how to change your own response to your partner's anger and feel better about yourself." - William J. Doherty, author of Take Back Your Marriage
