—Thich Nhat Hanh”One of the best books we’ve ever seen on the issue of dealing with anger…Getting angry is normal. The question is how do you deal with your anger. In this incredible story, Anh gets really angry and gets sent to his room to ‘sit with’ his anger. Anh not only sits with his anger, he chats, dances, and plays with his anger. This story is simply amazing, healthy, beautiful…a gem.”
