Great Expectations Today by D. Tanner is a book that addresses how to control our anger and how to quit having unrealistic expectations. 

We are not given the ability to affect change in this life. And even if we are given the authority to do so, there will still be some things we don't like. Humans frequently become upset and maybe dissatisfied if the expectations we set don't come true. This book is a manual that will show us how to stop having high expectations and learn to be content with what we already have. 

What I enjoy about this book is how thoroughly each chapter is described by the author, and short stories are utilized to support each point. For instance, the author used examples and true accounts from his life as well as rage situations he had seen to further his discussion of anger and anger management. One of the things I liked was that it helped me better grasp this novel. This book is easy to understand for anyone who reads it. Humans occasionally become upset, but there are times when restraint is preferable to outright wrath. People who read this book, especially those who are easily triggered, will learn something from it. 

Even though this book is a great read, the author provides some examples that don't fit the plot. These examples, in my opinion, should not have been included because they added unnecessary pages and details to the book. As a result, I'll give this book a rating of 4 out of 5 stars. This book's editing is spectacular; I didn't see any mistakes while reading it. It’s exceptionally well edited. The author's writing style is great, and that's impressive. 

Anyone interested in learning about anger management and the guidelines to follow in controlling anger should read this book, which I highly recommend.

I agree with you that we can’t change certain things and we have to accept how things are. You did a great job in this review. Well done.

It's refreshing to read that the reviewer found the book easily understandable and accessible to a wide range of readers. The acknowledgement that restraint can be more beneficial than unbridled anger demonstrates an open-mindedness to exploring different perspectives. The reviewer's remark that even those who are easily triggered will gain valuable insights from the book shows their consideration for various readers' needs and experiences.
