Publisher's Summary

When we think of our emotions, we often tend to see them as ways of reacting to the world. We feel happiness, sadness, anger, hope, and other emotions because we act on the world, and the world acts on us in turn, and we show our initial reactions by means of our instincts and feelings.

What if there was more than one way of understanding our emotions? What if we could learn to see our emotions as ways of changing the world for the better? What if we could learn to harness our emotions in order to improve our relationships with ourselves and with others?

This is the key idea to understanding the topic of emotional intelligence, the overarching term for the various skills and capabilities related to understanding our own emotions and those felt by other people. These skills and capabilities include identifying emotions, managing them, and using them to build better interpersonal relationships.

Emotional intelligence has been touted as the key to long-term success. It has been linked to the prospect of a more satisfying experience at work. It is one of the most critical factors in building more long-lasting and more satisfying romantic and/or sexual relationships. And it has been observed to have long-lasting effects on mental and physical health.

In this book, you'll learn about emotional intelligence and its most important applications. You'll learn why developing emotional intelligence is important for both the child and for the adult. You'll learn about the benefits of developing emotional intelligence. And you'll learn about various strategies for developing emotional intelligence that you can easily incorporate into your daily life.

It's never too late to better understand, work with, and manage your emotions, and you can start today - all you need to do is listen to this book.

A small book with a big package.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

So much emphasis is placed on mental alacrity these days, that many of us have sacrificed the part of us that makes life worthwhile our feelings and how we use those feelings to relate to the people around us..

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

This is a great eye-opener, especially in the midst of this tumultuous year with seemingly everyone at each other's throats.

Great for promoting empathy!

Would you consider the audio edition of Emotional Intelligence to be better than the print version?

This book describes what emotional intelligence, how and why we use, its function in our daily lives, and and provides a strong argument as to why one should care about emotional intelligence.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

All in all, it is an argument for furthering empathy, but best of all it describes how to promote the development of emotional intelligence in children and in adults.As a therapist I see many people who come in with difficulties relating to people due to a deficit in these skills.

Any additional comments?

I would recommend this book as a handout to clients to promote psycho-education, to teachers, parents, and anyone who has to deal with the public. Perhaps if we all practiced a little more empathy, the world would be a better place!
