5.0 out of 5 stars Goleman's best book yet - start here!
Goleman's latest book is his best yet. It's considerably more compact and readable than the rather sprawling "Working With Emotional Intelligence", and his model of EI has now become more coherent.
The previous five 'competences' of emotional intelligence have now become four: Self-Awareness, Self-Management, Social Awareness, and Relationship Management. Motivation...

2.0 out of 5 stars over blown, over hyped and over here!
I enjoyed the first 100 or so pages and liked the concept of resonance, however after that the book went downhill! Most of the examples are laboured at best and only partially relevant. Maybe a good editor could have trimmed many of the examples and tightened up both the relevance and the impact.

For many i was left with a "so what ..." feeling. Sadly not...

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fabulous , Worthwhile Read, 7 Mar 2012
This review is from: The New Leaders: Transforming the Art of Leadership (Paperback)
This is quite a comprehensive and sizeable book. An easy read and packed with lots of case studies that can give you the 'aha' moments, rather than dry theory. Well worth the investment.

This review is from: The New Leaders: Transforming the Art of Leadership (Paperback)
A bit too americanised but Goleman is a yank so it makes sense. Good advise for a leader from any field and a good section on EI.

4.0 out of 5 stars great leadership insights, 13 Aug 2003
Have been looking for ideas about leaders and how they work. Some of Goleman's ideas are great, and also help understand how American bosses and leaders work based on those he examines. Another good book on American leaders and leadership is "Working with Americans" (Stewart-Allen, Denslow) which was very humourous and one I dipped in and out of often. An important subject and worth watching the Americans since their trends usually end up here in Europe at some point.
