This class has helped me in so very many ways. I’m so glad that I spent my money on this course to help myself to help others to improve all of these situations. So I am writing you to let you know that I do feel like I have improved myself through your book and through the 15 hour anger management course. I was very upset, frustrated and mad at the beginning but I got myself together, saw that it was someone else that was having a bad day and move forward, where before I would’ve exploded, blown up the phone, text over and over and over, and made the situation worse. So, I want to say thank you, thank you, thank you so very much for your knowledge, for your time and your help that you have allowed me to grow and to better handle myself in situations to help others and to help my health!
