Publisher's Summary

Discover 10 vital and extraordinary life lessons from one of the most important and influential philosophers and peace activists of the 20th century - Mahatma Gandhi - in this poignant and timely exploration of the true path from anger to peace, as recounted by Gandhi's grandson, Arun Gandhi. In the current troubled climate, in our country and in the world, these lessons are needed more than ever before.
"We should not be ashamed of anger. It's a very good and a very powerful thing that motivates us. But what we need to be ashamed of is the way we abuse it." (Mahatma Gandhi)
Arun Gandhi was just 12 years old when his parents dropped him off at Sevagram, his grandfather's famous ashram. To Arun, the man who fought for India's independence and was the country's beloved preeminent philosopher and leader was simply a family member. He lived there for two years under his grandfather's wing until Gandhi's assassination.
While each chapter contains a singular timeless lesson, The Gift of Anger also takes you along with Arun on a moving journey of self-discovery as he learns to overcome his own struggle to express his emotions and harness the power of anger to bring about good. He learns to see the world through new eyes under the tutelage of his beloved grandfather and provides a rare three-dimensional portrait of this icon for the ages.
The 10 vital life lessons strike a universal chord about self-discovery, identity, dealing with anger, depression, loneliness, friendship, and family - perfect for anyone searching for a way to effect healing change in a fractured world.

Arrogant and self righteous

The grandson does not share the purity of heart of Gandi. Often his personal bias and opinions are follow with"as my grandfather said". I doubt it.

Absolutely Wonderful

I loved this book! The teachings are brilliantly simple. I feel like I got to know Gandhi and understand the nonviolent movement. The way I think of nonviolence has changed and I feel like this book and the lessons in it has given me a very applicable way to be a better person and to be happier. I would recommend this book to everyone!
