    Daniel Goleman(Author)
The groundbreaking bestseller that redefines intelligence and success Does IQ define our destiny? Daniel Goleman argues that our view of human intelligence is far too narrow, and that our emotions play major role in thought, decision making and individual success. Self-awareness, impulse control, persistence, motivation, empathy and social deftness are all qualities that mark people who excel: whose relationships flourish, who are 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.

There was a time when IQ was considered the leading determinant of success. In this fascinating book, based on brain and behavioural research, Daniel Goleman argues that our IQ- idolising view of intelligence is far too narrow. Instead, Goleman makes the case for "emotional intelligence" being the strongest indicator of human success. He defines emotional intelligence in terms of self-awareness, altruism, personal motivation, empathy and the ability to love and be loved by friends, partners, and family members. People who possess high emotional intelligence are the people who truly succeed in work as well as play, building flourishing careers and lasting, meaningful relationships. Because emotional intelligence isn't fixed at birth, Goleman outlines how adults as well as parents of young children can sow the seeds.

    What an insight.I only wish I had come across this book years ago.Sometimes it gets to scientific, but for the most part it a good read ( not a book to enjoy). This book is a keeper. I will be adding to my permanent library. I will be reading this book over and over ( it that good).It's given me a lot of insight into myself and why I am the way I am.It shows how to understand how conflicts arise and how to reduce, disarm potential conflicts.How to empathise and build a good self ethic.

    Read "intelligence in the flesh" by Guy Claxton. Much more readable, and more upto date on pretty much the same stuff.

    I can't stop listening to this audio book! It's being on my to read list for far too long. Very interesting and fascinating to learn so much about how our brains work and how important is EI.Audio books are a new thing for me and a fantastic way to maximise the little time one gets. I can now listen to my book on my way to work, whilst cooking or doing any other task that permits multitasking in this way.
