Quiet the Rage

How Learning to manage Conflict will Change Your Life (and the World)

“Intense, personal and vulnerable. This is a life lesson, generously shared, that might strike a chord and change a life.”
―Seth Godin, author of Linchpin and The Icarus Deception

“What an honest, vulnerable, incredible journey! Burke’s writing style is clear, concise, and bam―to the point! I will need to read this book more than once.”
―Linda Guthrie, Coach, Consumer Experience Movement, Ford Motor Company

“I have worked a lot on my anger; however, the info in this book is like discovering the missing link. Now, I have a much better understanding of why I get spun up in certain situations. I have a much better toolkit for dealing with my anger or avoiding it altogether.”
―Phil Klein, Facilitator, Maritz Performance Improvement, General Motors Standards For Excellence

In a world with more than 7 billion people, 196 countries, 7,000 spoken languages, and close to 30 religions, the probability of one group or one person intentionally or unintentionally offending another group or another person is absolutely certain. Many people limit themselves in life based on their inability to get along with others, and too often we allow ourselves to be ruled by our emotions. When we’re emotionally reactive, we’re not our best selves, nor do we produce the smartest outcomes. Emotional reactions create winners and losers. And winning directly at the expense of another is actually losing in disguise, due to the resentment it inspires in the loser. Often, people get stuck in a pattern of reacting emotionally, long past the time when the combativeness that once served them no longer does; long past the time when the pattern has become destructive without them being aware of it. For everyone who wants to change that part of themselves―everyone who wants more peaceful interactions and more successful outcomes, but doesn’t know how to achieve that―Quiet the Rage is the answer.
