The Little Book of Anger has been written as an antidote to the genre of inspirational books which aim to make the reader a better and happier person.
It is a diatribe about many of the aggravating and irrational aspects of modern life, but done with much humour, a certain amount of research and a great deal of observation and some ill-suppressed exasperation.
There are thirty chapters in all, each focussing on an aspect of modern life that can cause irritation - from chewing gum to the assault on the English language.
The book explores some of the major irritants of life in way that will chime with readers, even if they don't agree.
As one reviewer put it, the pleasure of the book is in agreeing with most of it - and getting cross with the rest.
This book is not intended as a literary version of Grumpy Old Men and Grumpy Old Women, but if you liked those, you'll love this!
