Publisher's Summary

Emotional intelligence (EI) has been called “advanced common sense” and is proven to be a far better predictor of success than IQ. And unlike cognitive function, your emotional capacities are flexible, adaptable, and highly expandable. Filled with inspir­ing stories from companies who have tapped into the power of EI, along with profiles of people facing real-world dilemmas and easy-to-implement action plans, The Other Kind of Smart opens your eyes to crucial, yet often ignored, life lessons, including how to:

Handle conflicts in a way that brings people closer together and learn why disengage­ment is the real worry. Become in tune with the full range of your emotions and transform them from your enemies to your allies. Move beyond thinking of success in monetary terms to discover what you really want to accomplish, then actively work to achieve your goals. Build healthy personal and professional relationships, the cornerstone of happiness and fulfillment. Use your emotional intelligence to effectively navigate change and cope with stress. Cultivate optimism and other mental habits of happy people—while avoiding a limited “Pollyanna” outlook.

EI is not a sideline, soft issue, but a critical factor in your personal and professional well-being. The Other Kind of Smart uncovers deep insights and simple strategies for building the life you want.

    "Excellent!"
    Would you listen to The Other Kind of Smart again? Why?

    I've listened several times and highly recommend this book. I have 60-70 audiobooks and listen everyday.

    This is my favorite book on emotional intelligence.

    Next favorite would be the 4-5 books written by Daniel Goleman.

    Least favorite are these two books: Emotional Intelligence Quickbook and Emotional Intelligence 2.0.

    "Comprehensive and deep exploration of Emotional Intelligence"

    Emotional Intelligence is becoming a popular topic in leadership, business and personal development circles. To the point that it's now becoming a catch-all buzzword for the "soft skills" that help make people successful. Harvey (I feel like I know him on a first name basis after listening to this book) does an excellent job of defining and describing emotional intelligence for those new to the topic and those who have more experience. Nowhere have I seen a resource that covers so many aspects of EI this well.

    And in the final two chapters, I really enjoyed the personal stories, particularly about Harvey's time in end of life care. This is a great resource for anyone interested in learning more about emotional intelligence.

    "A good read"

    It is very easy to listen to. I have only given it 4 stars because I think I may have it all before through different books and articles.

    "Don't waste your time"
    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator was horrible. It was like listening to that pompous movie-trailer guy for hours on end. Avoid him.


    Any additional comments?

    The material was rehashed from better sources. Read Goleman's books first. If you're still desperate for more books on EI, read this one last, only after you've exhausted every other possibility.

    "Great read. Just what I needed"

    This was a great read and just what I needed. It addresses all that ails us: relationships, happiness, communication, purpose, and motivation. I am so happy I read this book at this time in my life. Will definitely pass on to all.
