    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.

    This book lives up to its high reputation! Being a student of psychology and anthropology, I really appreciate Goleman's holistic approach to understanding the complexities to human intelligence and interpersonal interactions. This is a book to study, more than to just read once.

    Is IQ destiny? Not nearly as much as we think. This fascinating and persuasive program argues that our view of human intelligence is far too narrow, ignoring a crucial range of abilities - emotional intelligence - that matter immensely in terms of how we do in life.

    This book should be required reading for everybody! Our world would be transformed if the application of this information ever became institutionalized. The understandings from this book explain many of the interpersonal conflicts that are plaguing our world today.

    As America enters the aging age, The Ultra Mind Solution speaks directly to the massive generation of boomers who, for the first time, are encountering diminishing memory and focus, among other affects of life on earth and the human brain. Like all of Dr. Hyman's work, this latest installment in the Ultra series teaches listeners how to use the body as well as how to heal the body, this time making lifestyle changes that will foster brain function, including memory, mood, and attention.

    Story

    If you are interested in the concept of food as preventative medicine, then this book is well worth your time. I am not sure the book's title really does it justice, and actually think many people would by this book if it were marketed under a slightly different title. Dr. Hyman does an excellent job of making a lot of potentially technical information easy to understand. However, on the performance side of things, he does have a quirky little laugh at times (while reading the text) that really does not seem appropriate. Nevertheless, I highly recommend this book! The information within this text should be required of all health care practitioners!

    In this revolutionary look at the brain, best-selling author, psychiatrist, and psychoanalyst Norman Doidge, M.D., introduces both the brilliant scientists championing this new science of neuroplasticity and the astonishing progress of the people whose lives they've transformed.

    Introducing principles we can all use, as well as a riveting collection of case histories, The Brain That Changes Itself has "implications for all human beings, not to mention human culture, human learning and human history."

    This type of information should be included in the 'manual' of being human. This book is right in line with the most contemporary understandings within human development that states - human are plastic (malleable) in nature.

    Throughout history, rivers have been our foremost source of fresh water both for agriculture and for individual consumption, but now economists say that by 2025 water scarcity will cut global food production by more than the current U.S. grain harvest. In this groundbreaking book, veteran science correspondent Fred Pearce focuses on the dire state of the world's rivers to provide our most complete portrait yet of the growing world water crisis and its ramifications for us all.

    If you think your brain and mind are one, think again. According to the interpersonal neurobioligy pioneer Daniel J. Siegel, the mind actually emerges out of the interaction between your brain and relationships. Now, with The Neurobiology of "We", Dr. Siegel invites you on a journey to discover this revolutionary new model of human development - one that can positively transform trauma, move you from stress to calm and equanimity, and promote well-being for you, your family, or even your community.

    I am currently, at the age of 42, finishing up two bachelor degrees - one in psychology and the other in anthropology. I have also been practicing mindfulness through disciplines like Tai Chi, Yoga and seated meditation for the last 12 years.

    I think Siegel has done the most holistic and comprehensive job of covering the power of being mindful, and what it means to our social relationships! There is an amazing amount of digestible information in this book. Highly recommend it! If you are NOT a student of neurobiology you may want to take some notes so as not to get lost; there are a lot of layers to what he is offering within this work.

    Keep an eye on this man's work, he is onto some powerful ways of understanding the processes of what it is to be a human being.
