Using simple Buddhist principles and applying them in a way that is easy for non-Buddhists to understand and put into practice, Scheff and Edmiston have created an interactive book that helps readers change perspective, step by step, so that they can replace the anger in their lives with a newfound happiness. Based on the successful anger management program Scheff created, The Cow in the Parking Lot shows how anger is based on unmet demands, and introduces the four most common typesâImportant and Reasonable (you want love from your partner); Reasonable but Unimportant (you didnât get that seat in the restaurant window); Irrational (you want respect from a stranger); and the Impossible (you want someone to fix everything wrong in your life).
Scheff and Edmiston show how, once we identify our real unmet demands we can dissolve the anger; how, once we understand our "buttons," we can change what happens when theyâre pushed. He shows how to laugh at ourselvesâa powerful early step in changing angry behavior. By the end, as the reader continues to observe and fill in the exercises honestly, it wonât matter who takes that parking spaceâonly you can make yourself angry.
