Clark, A. D., & Perkins P. (1996).  Surviving Your Boss: How to Cope With Office Politics and Get on With Your Job.
"In any situation of change, conflict, or misunderstanding there is anger. Anger frequently masks fear. Fear in situations of conflict and change is very predictable. And with anger there is usually blame, for oneself and for others. Anger is one of the most destructive forces in the workplace today. It is ultimately a fatal emotion. Studies show that about 20 percent of us have hostility levels high enough to be dangerous—to our own health and to those around us. Hostility level is associated with increased smoking, drinking, eating, and weight gain. Hostility has long been a well-established contributor to coronary risk and heart disease, as well as myriad other illnesses.
It's likely you have experienced the relationship between anger, depression, resentment, and low self-esteem. You know about the aches and pains that come from tension. The fatigue and lack of joy that ensue as days are increasingly filled with the burden of frustration and suppressed rage." (p. 96)
