About This Book

In Anger Kills, Dr. Redford Williams reveals ground-breaking research that confirms that hostility not only is a serious barrier to happiness, but can lead to heart disease and other life-threatening illnesses.

Dr. Williams and his wife, Virginia, team up to present the latest research in the field and offer seventeen practical strategies that can help readers translate scientific theory into meaningful action. Begin by taking the Hostility Questionnaire, which will help you assess the degree to which hostility, cynicism, and aggression rule your life. Then start a Hostility Log and follow the Hostility Roadmap to keep track of those incidents or people that really push your buttons. With these insights, you can then move on to sample any or all of the seventeen different strategies to reduce the wrath that sabotages your health and can drain your life of joy and pleasure.

In writing Anger Kills, the authors draw not only on the latest research, but on their own experiences as a couple for more than twenty-nine years and on the experiences of couples who have used the Williamses' methods successfully in various workshops the authors have led. The result is a combination of solid science with empathic explorations of the nature of human relationships and caring. This is science with a heart.
