This book lives up to its high reputation! Being a student of psychology and anthropology, I really appreciate Goleman's holistic approach to understanding the complexities to human intelligence and interpersonal interactions. This is a book to study, more than to just read once.
College English professor who loves classic literature, psychology, neurology and hates pop trash like Twilight and Fifty Shades of Grey.
Goes far beyond what the title implies and gets into the neurology of moral behavior and how technology will influence the way we interact.

Emotional Intelligence. Same author and a variation on the same topic.
I don't know.
Let's get along.
I bought the paperback for my daughter. This book is great for new Mom's who want to raise children who are more socially adept.
What more could I ask for in a book of this type, but to help me broaden my understanding of the world around me. Specifically, in this case, to aid me in understanding myself and my fellow members of humanity. While I feel that the author pushes an agenda for social change, I can't blame him for using this book as a pulpit. It was never a bully pulpit, but rather nudging the reader to adopt what the author firmly believes. Shining light into how we behave may not always reveal a pretty picture, but I appreciate the additional illumination.
