    Emotional Intelligence was a phenomenon, selling more than five million copies worldwide. Now, in Social Intelligence, Daniel Goleman explores an emerging science with startling implications for our interpersonal world. Its most amazing discovery: we are "wired to connect", designed for sociability, constantly engaged in a "neural ballet" that connects us, brain to brain, with those around us.

    Thomas Paine published Common Sense in 1776, a time when America was a hotbed of revolution. The pamphlet, which called for America's political freedom, sold more than 150,000 copies in three months. Paine not only spurred his fellow Americans to action but soon came to symbolize the spirit of the Revolution itself. His persuasive pieces, written so elegantly, spoke to the hearts and minds of all those fighting for freedom from England.

    Kaui says: "A MUST READ for every American!"
    "Learn the History!"
