"The Logic of Anger addresses a very common emotional state which is at the core of mankind’s suffering and a cause of depression, anxiety, physical malaise and worsening medical illness. Modern psychiatry’s reliance on pharmacological treatment has missed missed the target: McManaman shows that embracing forgiveness can heal a human being’s anguish and torment."
