Author Biography

50 years on the planet and counting. I have four brothers, one sister and mid-western parents who relocated our family to the fast paced New York suburbs when I was 2 years old.

"People pleasing" was how I won friends and influenced others in business and family affairs. Credit analysis, real estate, mortgages, and advertising consulting are all areas I have succeeded in. As one of my therapists told me, people pleasings ugly cousin is resentment.

I am a father to three, have lived amongst the rich and famous, as well as, in the bleakest of circumstance. I bring to readers an easy to read honest look at how we all feel justified, even entitled, to act-out against others when we feel they deserve it.

I break it all down so that regardless of where your anger stems from; anger at God, your parents, over lost loved ones, financial circumstances, marital controversy or any other; you will see the world anew and feel at peace with it.

Reviewed by Kristie Ingerto for Readers' Favorite

"Anger Management" is Mark Hour's personal account of his struggle to deal with past hurts and manage his own anger. It has come out as a book to help and encourage others to manage their anger in healthy ways to avoid the consequences that Mark faced. However, this book is based upon the Bible and the Lord's way of dealing with anger. The book implies that it is impossible to be successful and have healthy lives and relationships without His help. This book is split into well-defined sections and contains Mark's personal experiences, things that he has learned from professionals working with him and Biblical verses and passages. Each chapter begins with questions for the reader to think about and reflect upon in their own lives.

This book is a quick read; however, I would encourage the reader not to rush through it as there is a lot to think about and reflect upon in each one's personal life while reading this. Each of us are molded by our own personal experiences and interactions, whether they are negative or positive. Mark shares through his own experiences that the past must be dealt with in order to have a healthy life and relationships. I admire the author for opening up and sharing his own experiences and struggles in order to help others. The personal feel throughout this book makes it one that people will want to read and they will be led to seek help and make changes in their own lives.
