It is a classic book, with great insight.
I would prefer Daniel Goleman narrate.
It is extremely difficult to stay focused on the material because of the narrator.
This book should be a series of books dedicated to each aspect, self help, psychology, and educating. The combination of all this topics made me disinterested in 80 % of the book.
The content of the book was useful, but the reading was berry difficult to follow as it seemed to be ready a computer (though it was read by the author)
I had quite a few "aha!" moments with this book. learned a new thing or two and about myself. I will have to devour this one a few times for it all to sink in.
this book is phenomenal in the message. the only part I didn't like was the narrator sounds like a dud reading a text book. if everyone in the world took the information in this book to hear the world would be much happier and peaceful.

I am far from giving a real professional review of this landmark book.
I just listened and listened well as there are so many insights I find useful for me as a person, for my spouse and family, as well as for my work.
I believe self-awareness, the most significant part of emotional intelligence, is a significant part of what make a man become a mensch.
this book has helped answer many life questions and understand my deepest struggles. a must read for those who dont know why they feel a certain way, as well as better understand ways to communicate with loved ones who are afflicted.
In this book Daniel Goleman gives excellent examples of how to utilize emotional intelligence.
The only negative thing is that Daniel Goleman narrates the first chapter only.
