The only thing I found clear about this book was the description. Based on that, this sounds like a great title from a blogger who seems to know his stuff. Instead I kept hearing this seemingly-pointless droning about autism. I stopped the book several times to make sure I was playing the title I thought I was. What does any of this have to do with the title or the description of this book? I made it though...moving on.
Wacky and worth a good laugh! That should be enough to review a 6 minute long audio book but Audible requires 15 words AND a title. Soooooo there
At times when listening to this book I wonder who Barbara Ehrenreich is trying to impress. Some sentences are packed full of impressive-sounding words which would be great for a game of Scrabble but give her tone a lofty and pedantic air.
That being said, I love some of the history uncovered by the book and found it to be a great tempering to the extremism of "positive thinking" I've encountered with some people.
The printed book is very information-dense so I was pleased to see Barrett Whitener was the narrator for this title. He has a crisp speaking manner which makes it easier to absorb this information audibly. Emotional Intelligence is one of the most valuable resources on this subject. If you only have a passing interest in the subject, the Emotional Intelligence QuickBook may be a better title. However, if you want to get down to the core psychology and neurology of Emotional Intelligence, this is the title for you.
