The Dance of Anger: A Woman's Guide to Changing the Patterns of Intimate Relationships. (1985) by Harriet Goldhor Lerner. New York: Harper & Row.

Dr. Lerner is a Psychologist who has hit on a very helpful metaphor to illuminate the dance-like interaction pattern of anger in close relationships. She takes an insight-oriented rather than cognitive approach and helps the reader understand and manage their anger better. She has also used the dance metaphor in her books on intimacy and deception. This book is written for women but is useful for men as well.
