    "Do not buy this on Audible - NO test code"
    What would have made Emotional Intelligence 2.0 better?

    Don't buy this book on Audible. You are supposed to take an online test along with reading this book, and you are supposed to get the code for the test from Audible. I contacted both Audible and the TalentSmart company, and neither honor this promise when you buy it from Audible. Absolutely horrible bait and switch, as the book is not nearly as effective if you can't take the test along with reading it and measure your own progress.

    What character would you cut from Emotional Intelligence 2.0?

    I haven't even read past the introduction, since I can't take the test

    "You need to have access to an online tool"
    What disappointed you about Emotional Intelligence 2.0?

    It is after you buy the book that you realize that you need access to the online assesment tool. It's been a week and no code has been provided so far. I've just called Customer Service to see if I will receive the promised access.Unless you get tested through the online tool, the audiobook is useless.

    "This is a good READ."

    This wonderful book shines a light on the fact that intelligence, that is "book smarts," is just one component of what contributes to a person's overall success in life. Pursuing qualities such as self-esteem or persistence will make you more effective in your work, as well as bring more joy into your life. He gives you sound examples of how to cultivate areas in your own life, so you are not just reading about how it "should" be.

    That said, the narrator starts off well reading this book. He is engaging and fairly easy to listen to. However, at the points when he needs to share the quotes of a variety of people, he uses a strange and almost comical variety of voices and it does not work well. I became so annoyed with this over-acting, that eventually, I had to skip through it. It is truly awful.

    I had read the book, and just wanted to reiterate the information more clearly in my mind as I drove. Reading the book is worth the effort!

    "DO NOT BUY FROM AUDIBLE! - Incomplete product."
    Any additional comments?

    Audible cannot provide the code to take the self assessment. This is supposed to come with the book, but Audible does not know how to make it happen and will not refud your money. You'll have to go buy a separate hardcopy to take full advantage.

    "I wish I had access to this info decades ago!"
    Where does Emotional Intelligence 2.0 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is one of the top self-help books I have come across. Teaching yourself to engage more positively with those around you helps both yourself and others.
    I realise now that as a young person I was quite unintelligent (emotionally) while believing I was quite brilliant (intellectually).
    I found the link between financial success and EQ the most interesting fact.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    N/A


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The narrator is not the very best, but unlike other reviewers, I did not find him overly annoying. ( If I complained about the WAY an important message such as this was delivered - what would that that say about my EQ??)


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    INSPIRATIONAL.


    Any additional comments?

    I WENT OUT AND BOUGHT THE BOOK AFTER THE 4TH CHAPTER, AS I REALISED THERE WAS TOO MUCH INFO TO MEMORISE.

    "Better Printed or as a Pamphlet"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    There are many numbered lists in this book that would be better if purchased as a printed book. There is a ton of "filler" information in this book. I would imagine this could be a Pamphlet. It is not worth the cost.


    What was most disappointing about Travis Bradberry and Jean Greaves ’s story?

    The narration was laughable. He reads experiences from men and women. Instead of just reading the experience he reads one (like a woman) in a high pitched voice, then one like an angry man, happy man… it was so bad, so distracting I could not take it anymore.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Did Emotional Intelligence 2.0 inspire you to do anything?

    Return it.

    "Great information presented well"

    I’ve seen this book many times in various books stores, yet I had no interest in it. Then one day I was lead to it and bought it. I found the information quite useful at this point (2014) in my life. I’m going through a period of looking at how I’ve been conducting myself and the direction my life has been going. I found the techniques here and on the website after taking the EQ test very useful in my growth. I found ways to stop sniping at people and ways to work through issues with people. I’m finding the book very useful and condensed many other books I’ve read into one easy reference material. I have this in paper form as well as digital and I hand it out to people to read now. I recommend it to anyone looking to change or enhance their relationship skills.

    "Good content. Distracting (misogynist?) reader."
    Would you be willing to try another one of Tom Parks’s performances?

    No. Very weird choice to mimic gender-specific voices in the book. I would understand if this was fiction, but this was very distracting. It was like Foghorn Leghorn was reading the book to me...

    "too boring to listen to"

    I just could not engage with the reader's voice. I think this is one that is better read than listened to.

    "Beware!"
    If you could sum up Emotional Intelligence 2.0 in three words, what would they be?

    No Code Supplied


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Emotional Intelligence 2.0?

    When I realised you need a code to take a online survey as part of the course and Audible didn't email it to me. I have been contacting them for weeks via email, online chat and phone and still no code. Shame.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Yes, I found it fine


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, you need to break off to do the online test and get a score if you have the
    Code!


    Any additional comments?

    Looking at the other reviews the code not being supplied is a common problem

    "Really interesting audiobook"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Emotional Intelligence 2.0 to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the print version, so I cannot comment


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked that it came with the online content, and the straight forward advice to increasing your Emotional Intelligence


    What does Tom Parks bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Tom has very expressive vocalism that keeps me interested, whereas factual books, I tend to monotone when I'm reading


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It has made me stop and think a few times, but the content is not particularly emotionally charged


    Any additional comments?

    An excellent addition to any library

    "very good book, thought useless without the test,"

    DO NOT BUY IT, WITHOUT THE CODE to do the online test it is no better than a triller book, good but useless. very good response and provide from the audible customer service, request sent to some other departments in audible, s no response no acknowledgement, no any further contact. Audible needs to put their house in order, THERE ARE DIFFERENT ON LINE SHOPS WHERE THE CODE IS PROVIDED

    "No code suuplied"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Emotional Intelligence 2.0 to be better than the print version?

    Like the other reviewer on here, I was not emailed a code and am now trying to get one from Audible. It should be straightforward to email this code and is quite frustrating to start the book and realise after the first chapter that you need a code.
