This book will change your life." -Bob Esposito, Dealer Principal, General Manager, Yankee Automotive Group "This book is for everyone . . . especially someone like me who struggles with anxiety. It offers a way to take control back instead of feeling tossed by the waves." -Jennifer Roberts, Sales Manager, Genesee Valley Ford "This book has forever changed the way I view interactions with people, both professionally and personally." -Jason Standley, Business Development Center Manager, Rowe Auburn/Rowe Westbrook "The world needs more people who know how to manage conflict. Much of what is wrong in our society today could be changed if everyone understood how their anger is triggered. To adapt a quote from the cartoon character Pogo, 'I have met the enemy and it is me.' Everyone, even those who do not have a concern about rage, need to read this book." -Linda Mitchell, author of Choose Change . . . Before Change Chooses You! Thirteen Weeks To the Life You'll Love!
"R.W. Burke shares his wisdom and insights about how to manage conflict well in Quiet the Rage. Read this book and prepare for a peaceful life!"
-Marshall Goldsmith, international best-selling author/editor of thirty-five books, including What Got You Here Won't Get You There and Triggers
"In this thorough, explorative, and highly personal work, Burke gives readers tools and ideas for self-examination, growth, and conflict resolution . . . successfully tackles a complex subject that's relatively uncommon in self-help titles . . . What makes it particularly stand out is Burke's willingness to show his story in all lights in the service of his project-what his wife, Denise Burke, in a preface, calls 'the good, the bad, and the ugly of my husband's life.'"
