The Dance of Anger

"Anger is a signal and one worth listening to" writes Dr. Harriet Lerner, in her renowned classic that has transformed the lives of millions of readers. While anger deserves our attention and respect, women still learn to silence our anger, to deny it entirely, or to vent it in a way that leaves us feeling helpless and powerless.

Dr. Lerner teaches women to identify the true sources of our anger and to use anger as a powerful vehicle for creating meaningful and lasting change. The Dance of Anger has sold more than 2 million copies and been translated into more than 30 foreign editions.


“Of all the books that have been written about personal relationships of women and what to do about them, this is the most sound. Like a family heirloom, it can be passed from generation to generation, as it is based on profound lasting truths.”
     - Peggy Papp, M.S.W.

The Dance of Anger is such a helpful guide to understanding and reducing anger in close relationships. By showing how anger works to maintain the status quo as well as change it, Dr. Lerner gives readers information they can use to manage anger wisely and well.”

The Dance of Anger is a careful and compassionate exploration of women’s anger. It will be extremely useful to almost every reader.”
