    Do you work for an emotionally intelligent organization? In his phenomenal best seller Emotional Intelligence, Daniel Goleman, Ph.D. mapped the territory where emotional intelligence meets I.Q. - where we apply what we know to how we live. In Working with Emotional Intelligence, Dr. Goleman shows why emotional intelligence has become the new yardstick of success for CEOs and junior hires alike. Also, in abridged.

    "Not pop science"
    Overall

    Good review for working with children or others. Thought it would be self-help pop psychology. It was better than that.

    And Then the Roof Caved In lays bare the truth of the credit crisis, whose defining emotion at every turn has been greed, and whose defining failure is the complicity of the U.S. government in letting that greed rule the day. Written by CNBC's David Faber, this book painstakingly details the truth of what really happened with compelling characters who offer their first-hand accounts of what they did and why they did it.

    Jonnie says: "Best book explaining the recent economic collapse"
    "Clear & understandable"
    Overall

    From complex financial instruments to political climate Mr. Faber writes on of the most balanced and professional explanations for the current financial situation. If you want to know how we got here, this is a "must read."

  • A Beautiful Mind: The Life of Mathematical Genius and Nobel Laureate John Nash

    Story

    John Nash was a mathematician teetering on the brink of international acclaim, but he fell instead into madness. Saved by the love of a beautiful woman and the loyalty of the mathematics community, he went on to win a Nobel Prize and worldwide fame. This is his true story - and a new film starring Russell Crowe and Jennifer Connelly.

    B. W. Larsen says: "Abridged vs Unabridged"
    "More real than the movie"
    Overall

    Made Nash a real person. Not as romantic but genuine.

    "Re read"
    Overall

    I forgot how good this book is. Read it again, for the first time.
    Maybe it should be re-read every 5 years.

    "Slow / interesting read"
    Overall

    It got slow at times, but if interested in theories of religion, it is worth the read.
