Hate-less: Violence Prevention & How To Make Friends with a F&#!ed Up World Ian Brennan read online review & book description:

Hate-less: violence prevention & how to make friends with a f&#!ed up world  is a rare and valuable resource for any one struggling with the phenomenon of violence, whether they be an aggressor, bystander, victim, or all of the above. Addressing aggression’s various forms--- physical, verbal, and emotional-- throughout these pages the author provides multiple exercises for coping with destructive impulses and darker emotions. This handbook is written in a highly-accessible and condensed manner, designed to be a catalyst for introspection, dialogue, and even, debate. But be forewarned: though sometimes using humor, the author pulls no punches here, and often takes a stand while exploring complex and controversial themes. Ian Brennan has been providing intensive lectures worldwide on the topics of violence-prevention, anger management, and conflict resolution since 1993. This is the follow-up and sister volume to his first publication, Anger Antidotes: How Not to Lose Your S#&!

"This is a terrific book. From the first page Ian Brennan's Hate-less is insightful and useful for all of us -- both in dealing with our own anger or the anger of those around us. A valuable resource that I will give to both friends and clients, this powerful book can be life altering."
--Judy Tatelbaum, LCSW

and You Don’t Have To Suffer

“Ian Brennan has already given us sage advice and practical skills in his book Anger Antidotes. With Hate-less, he now zooms out and gives us a perspective on how our use of words reflects and reinforces cultural biases, creates patterns of thinking, and ultimately contributes to our inability to communicate effectively with each other.
Brennan calls for a restructuring of how we speak as a way to expand our ways of thinking, eliminating all or nothing/black and white words and creating a world without hate.
Sounds extraordinary. And it is an extraordinary journey with Brennan as he details the importance of thinking, speaking, and paying attention to what we say. Of course Brennan doesn’t just stop with the thoughtfulness that we have come to expect of him. He, once again, creates a practical program to guide us to mindful talking as an antidote to automatic and extreme communications.”
--Patt Denning, PhD

“For anyone (and that would really be everyone) who has ever ‘lost it’ in a moment of anger and frustration, Ian Brennan's Hate-less is a welcome antidote. Practical, witty and easy-to-read (and more importantly, easy-to-implement) Brennan's advice is sage and thoughtful. This is a book you will wear out.”
