    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.

    Overall

    Yes, I'll say it: this is one of the most important books I've read (listened to) in my life. I am well into my career of many years. I am 49. I work with executives, and I have friends that are execs, but I am not one. I am sometimes caught in between their squabbles. This book helps me understand my organization infinitely better than I did before. It's phenomenal for work relationships and interactions. It is great at helping you understand where you are in your career and how organizations and teams work best. It so rich. There is so much there,. I just finished Emotional Intelligence and then did this one. I think it is better to do it this way, but I think someone would get as much just doing this book.

  • The Mayor of Castro Street: The Life and Times of Harvey Milk

    Known as The Mayor of Castro Street even before he was elected to the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, Harvey Milk's personal life, public career, and final assassination reflect the dramatic emergence of the gay community as a political power in America. It is a story full of personal tragedies and political intrigues, assassinations at City Hall, massive riots in the streets, the miscarriage of justice, and the consolidation of gay power and gay hope.

    Overall

    One of the best books I've ever read (I mean heard). I've seen Milk several times, as well as the movie The Times of Harvey Milk, but this fills in all the gaps. So much was edited out and squished together to make those excellent movies, but it's here! Shilts' writing is excellent and so is the narrator on this one! I am so glad I bought this.

  • The 4-Hour Workweek: Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere, and Join the New Rich

    The 4 Hour Work Week explains what a lifestyle entrepreneur is and why you should want to become one. It teaches you how to "kill" your job and design a life, the 80/20 rule and how it increases productivity, how to replace your dreams with goals, and more. Listeners can lead a rich life by working only four hours a week, freeing up the rest of their time to spend it living the lives they want.
