Ever since the appearance of ‘Lie to me’ tv show, I am drawn by the subject of emotions and how they appear. So reading this book was a must for me, even thought it took me quite a while to read it. But in the end, I’m glad I did. It was interesting to discover so many insights about emotional intelligence and how important it is, starting from our childhood. I never imagined that in other countries, they teach emotional literacy in schools and that these courses can change the life journey of a child. Besides these courses, there are also mediating classes that teach children how to solve emotional conflicts. Another important part in developing one’s emotional intelligence is how the parents choose to raise their children: their reactions to them, the environment etc. This book is filled with examples about emotional intelligence backed up with studies (old ones, but still relevant) and I think it’s an important read for everyone who wants to understand more about emotions that appear in different situations.

A great book that delves into the science behind emotional intelligence, the components that comprise the trait, and the practical applications of possessing EI. While I knew a decent amount of the information beforehand as a Psychology student, several points stood out to me, such as the explanation of child molesters' mindsets, the idea that abused children gain heightened emotional perceptiveness, and almost all of the brain-related information. My favorite sections appeared toward the end, when Goleman shared success stories of emotional intelligence being taught in schools. One can only imagine - unless he or she works to make it a reality - the collective benefit of bringing social and emotional lessons to every Elementary school and beyond. Highly recommended for those who want to understand not only their own emotions, but the emotions of those around them. You can check out Jim's review for more about the contents within the book
A 25th anniversary edition of the number one, multi-million copy international bestseller that taught us how emotional intelligence is more important than IQ - 'a revolutionary, paradigm-shattering idea' (Harvard Business Review)
Featuring a new introduction from the author
Does IQ define our destiny? In his groundbreaking bestseller, Daniel Goleman argues that our view of human intelligence is far too narrow. It is not our IQ, but our emotional intelligence that plays a major role in thought, decision-making and individual success. Self-awareness, impulse control, persistence, motivation, empathy and social deftness: all are qualities that mark people who excel, whose relationships flourish, who can navigate difficult conversations, who become stars in the workplace.
With new insights into the brain architecture underlying emotion and rationality, Goleman shows precisely how emotional intelligence can be nurtured and strengthened in all of us.
