Emotional Intelligence | [Daniel Goleman, Ph.D.]

Emotional Intelligence

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.

Publisher's Summary

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 that matter immensely in terms of how we do in life.

Drawing on groundbreaking brain and behavioral research, Daniel Goleman shows the factors at work when people of high IQ flounder and those of modest IQ do well. These factors add up to a different way of being smart - one he terms "emotional intelligence." This includes self-awareness and impulse control, persistence, zeal and self-motivation, empathy, and social deftness.

These qualities mark people who excel in life, whose relationships flourish, who are stars in the workplace. Lack of emotional intelligence can sabotage the intellect and ruin careers. Perhaps the greatest toll is on children, for whom risks include depression, eating disorders, unwanted pregnancies, aggressiveness, and crime.

But the news is hopeful. Emotional intelligence is not fixed at birth, and the author shows how its vital qualities can be nurtured and strengthened in all of us. And because the emotional lessons a child learns actually sculpt the brain's circuitry, he provides guidance as to how parents and schools can best use this window of opportunity in childhood. The message of this eye-opening program is one we must take to heart: the true "bell curve" for a democracy must measure emotional intelligence.

    "Great Book - Good Audio"

    Great content but the topics need to be listened to a few times to truly comprehend. Very good audio, just the topic needs thought - which is the purpose of the book.

    "Great!!"

    This kind of information needs to be taught in High School or College. It has taking me many years to understand what he covered in this 1 book. Why not give the Kids a jump start. God knows they need it.

    "Clinical book - excellent content"
    Would you listen to Emotional Intelligence again? Why?

    I was reluctant to get this book because of the many bad reviews of the reader, however the real problem I believe is that this is a highly clinical book with very scientific information in it. I absolutely loved it.

    "Stands up to its great reputation!"

    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.
