Study the mussar series that the Steipler Gaon, Rav Shlomo Zalman Auerbach, Rav Shalom Schwadron and many other gedolim personally studied on a regular basis.
Rav Yehuda Zev Segal, the Manchester Rosh Yeshivah, zt"l, wrote:
"The books Remove Anger from Your Heart and Stay Away from Falsehood ... are truly very precious. I thank Hashem that I study them, and I gain greatly from them ... I would like to give copies of these books to my students, and I am sure that they will have tremendous benefits from them."
Rav Yaakov Yisrael Kanievsky, the Steipler Gaon, zt"l:
The Steipler loved the Sidras Tikkun Hamiddos books a great deal. Many visitors to his home testified that they found him immersed in these books, and members of his family relate that he studied them regularly. His son, Rav Chaim Kanievsky, shlit"a, recommends them and tells educators to use them in their classrooms.
Rav Shalom Schwadron, zt"l, wrote:
"How much you merited with these works cannot be measured or described. Congratulations, and may you merit added strength to produce works such as these for all the positive character traits ... Let me tell you one other matter. I, the small one, have committed this year during the Aseres Y'mei Teshuvah that, im yirtzeh Hashem, this year I will study from one of your works every day!"
Rav Ovadia Yosef, shlit"a, wrote:
"I bless him for his wonderful work ... and I encourage and strengthen him to continue this holy work, for it truly benefits many Jews. I know that, baruch Hashem, in many yeshivot they study his works, and they have been a great help to many rabbis and speakers!"
This book is a translation of Haser Ka'as Milibecha -- Remove Anger from Your Heart, a classic mussar work compiled by Rav Avraham Tubolsky, shlit"a.
The baalei mussar teach that the way to correct one's middos is through emotional learning and repetition of the words of our Sages. To that end, Rav Tubolsky collected and summarized sayings and lessons from our Sages throughout history, as well as anecdotes from the Talmud, practical suggestions to overcome anger, and stories about individuals who conquered their anger. The result is a work that has a powerful effect on the neshamah.
The most convincing testimony to the greatness of this book and series is the fact that gedolim past and present have frequently recommended it to others and learned from it regularly themselves.
