"[Goleman] uses the emerging science of neuro-sociology to show how priming our brains for meaningful connectivity with others can make the world a better place... Fascinating" (Sunday Telegraph)
"Daniel Goleman understands people. He has a keen appreciation for the scientific basis of why we are the way we are - why some of us are natural flirts while others of us have a hard time getting a second date; why some of us are wired to make a great first impression at a job interview while others are useless at navigating office politics." (Financial Times)
"A rich compendium of recent developments in developmental and social psychology and the burgeoning field of social neuroscience... There is a great deal in Goleman's book to interest and inform the general reader who may still think Freud is the last word on the science of human relationships." (New Scientist)
"An easy and enjoyable read... An easy introduction to all sorts of new areas in psychology. It should improve your dinner-party conversational skills and provide useful snippets for any presentation." (Management Today) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
A major book from the author of the bestselling Emotional Intelligence. Social Intelligence does for relationships what Emotional Intelligence did for emotions: brings readers a radically different way of thinking about themselves and their world. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.See all Product Description

So I bought a copy for myself, and am re-reading it more slowly, but still enjoying it immensely. At 76 years old, I feel very lucky to have access to new thinking, and am hoping the challenge of studying this material will keep my own brain in good trim.
Working with special needs students, this book puts into perspective the role of social understanding and highlights the reasons why so many children have issues with their peers, with authority and with other adults in their lives. It explains why I had such issues....
Anything by Goleman is worth buying. Be sure to read it and pass on the understanding to at least 10 other people. Your wish will come true.....!
Read it and then give it to anyone and everyone who will read it. After 30 years working in mental health I think that our relationships are the most important choices we will ever make. You cannot choose who you were born to, but you can go some way to choosing who you live with and how you care for them.
Firstly, the book is very descriptive and tends to elaborate on lots of research in lots of detail rather than telling you the practical implications of the research. I want to know: What can I do to improve my 'social intelligence'? But that's not really what the book's focus is on.
My other comment is that the book could be about half the length. Goleman has a very flowery writing style and tends to string together really lengthy sentences that sometimes require reading twice.
If you want a book that covers the latest research in interpersonal communication, this book is for you. If you want a book that helps you in your life or career, I'd skip this one.
