Perhaps you have read a bit too much nontzense on the evils of anger, or are too mild-mannered by nature. Either way, you’re scheduled on the 4:19 to Disaster if you don’t toughen up and start that big old furnace that’s sitting in your basement, waiting for a match….
….you must do what successful warriors do and turn that annoyance into a white-hot coal of anger that can be doused only by the death of your enemies.
This you can do in a five-step program of anger management—not in the sense that term is usually employed, of course. In your case, we’re going to manage your anger upward, so that it may be used as a weapon in itself, and as fuel for other weapons that are relatively toothless without it.

- Don’t plunge head first in to intense fighting.
