Everyone knows that high IQ is no guarantee of success, happiness, or virtue, but until Emotional Intelligence, we could only guess why. Daniel Goleman's brilliant report from the frontiers of psychology and neuroscience offers startling new insight into our "two minds" - the rational and the emotional - and how they together shape our destiny. Through vivid examples, Goleman delineates the five crucial skills of emotional intelligence, and shows how they determine our success in relationships, work, and even our physical well-being. What emerges is an entirely new way to talk about being smart. The best news is that "emotional literacy" is not fixed early in life. Every parent, every teacher, every business leader, and everyone interested in a more civil society, has a stake in this compelling vision of human possibility.

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
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.
