Very interesting content, well written, concise.

This is a good book. I haven't read Daniel Coleman's other books but this seems to be a concise summary of a number of different topics (or aspects) of the links between emotional intelligence and leadership. Each topic is dealt with in self contained chapters that could be described as stand alone essays. Each could probably be filled out to fill a whole book, and I think this may indeed be a summary of a number of different books, but there is nevertheless enough detail here to give an interested reader a good understanding of the points being made.
The topics raised are fascinating and seem to be backed up quite well by fairly rigorous research.
The book is well written and easy to read. I would say the topics in it are very important. I have leant a lot from it and would recommend it highly.
