There was a time when IQ was considered the leading determinant of success. In this fascinating book, based on brain and behavioural research, Daniel Goleman argues that our IQ- idolising view of intelligence is far too narrow. Instead, Goleman makes the case for "emotional intelligence" being the strongest indicator of human success. He defines emotional intelligence in terms of self-awareness, altruism, personal motivation, empathy and the ability to love and be loved by friends, partners, and family members. People who possess high emotional intelligence are the people who truly succeed in work as well as play, building flourishing careers and lasting, meaningful relationships. Because emotional intelligence isn't fixed at birth, Goleman outlines how adults as well as parents of young children can sow the seeds. --Amazon.com

The only thing I would say is that though the book is an eye opener to why we are the way we are and that perhaps it's not our fault, (or anyone else's for that matter) it is only an eye opener and an introduction to the possibility of change through understanding and further research and does not really offer any practical advice that can be applied by ourselves to ourselves to help self improve and the only advice to help with others, mainly children, is from what we can glean from the anecdotal evidence from various studies, groups and experimental approaches tried by various schools, universities and programmes. There is no summing up of all the findings to create some kind of guide as to how to help your children, or indeed yourself, to be a more emotionally intelligent being.
I only wish I had come across this book years ago.
Sometimes it gets to scientific, but for the most part it a good read ( not a book to enjoy). This book is a keeper. I will be adding to my permanent library. I will be reading this book over and over ( it that good).
It's given me a lot of insight into myself and why I am the way I am.
It shows how to understand how conflicts arise and how to reduce, disarm potential conflicts.
How to empathise and build a good self ethic.
Audio books are a new thing for me and a fantastic way to maximise the little time one gets. I can now listen to my book on my way to work, whilst cooking or doing any other task that permits multitasking in this way.
But beats way too much around the bush.
Thought it was an amazing book after reading the reviews.
Don't be mislead by my comments its a good book but definetely overrated.
I like the way the book lined nature (creation, humanity) with science. It attest to the truth already known. Love is the way! Understanding is key!
Advanced English grammar. Highly descriptive and provide answers for high temperaments and how to positively explain to yourself to avoid a misunderstanding leading to anger.
I recommend the book to those in search of answers to emotional excesses - anger, anxiety, emotional disconnect, inability to maintain friendships and relationships with opposite sex etc.
