Great source for compelling research on our emotions, how and why they work, and the brain's function in all of this.

An Essential Book

by JimGNZ on Mar 3, 2008

This book is an essential read for anyone interested in human relationships. In it Daniel Goleman tells the reader about the skills and qualities we all need to get along with other people. His work is backed up with solid research and good science. The book is written in an engaging style . Hopefully Mr. Goleman will present us with a new edition based on new research .


EI Matters More than IQ in Life Success

by Lara on Sep 16, 2007

This book came out in 1994 and quickly became one of the most influential social science books of the decade. While some critics, myself included, quibble that emotional intelligence is really social intelligence, it is still a revelation on how profound a predictor it is, and that it is so teachable a skill. Daniel Goleman argues in this fascinating book, based on brain and behavioral research, that a blind focus on IQ overlooks more telling indicators of success in life. Goleman shows us that "emotional intelligence" is the strongest index. Emotional intelligence is defined as self-awareness, altruism, personal motivation, empathy, and the ability to love and be loved by friends, partners, and family members. Possessors of high EI (emotional intelligence) are the ones who build flourishing careers and lasting marriages. The good news is that because EI is not fixed at birth like IQ is, adults as well as children can learn these skills. The author states that emotions play a greater role in our success than is commonly acknowledged. He defines "emotional intelligence" a trait not measured by IQ tests as a set of skills. Although his survey of research into cognitive and emotional development may not convince everyone, his report is an intriguing and practical guide to self mastery. Marriage success entails listening well. Goleman also lists pilot programs in schools across the country, where kids get practice in conflict resolution, impulse control and social skills.
