    1. This visionary book by Daniel Goleman is one of the most important in my collection I see it as a seminal contribution to understanding the human condition, and a roadmap of practical steps for living better, both within ourselves and with those around us.I begin by recommending the excellent review by Lars a clear, well written summary of the major points in the book.Here I will focus on 3 topics from the book 1 the evolution of brain mechanisms for emotional and rational behavior 2 how these m [...]

    2. Descriptive but not very practical The main and only thesis of the book is emotional intelligence is important That s it Goleman spends over 13 hours in this audiobook to pretty much buttress the thesis with evidence from various sources including psychology, medicine, and educational programs.The content is interesting at times but overall, the message got repetitive and I was looking for any useful information to put to use in my daily life from the book to no avail Unfortunately the book is v [...]

    3. Emotional Intelligence is a book that was recommended to read on a management course that I took, oh, some time way back towards the beginning of the century The course was taught by a middle aged white woman from southern Africa She also recommend Covey s book The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, but in my enthusiasm that didn t put me off from reading this, perhaps because of an exercise she conducted with us in which you think of something that you d like to do but haven t done and th [...]

    4. After several years of looking at this seminal work on my to read list, I am happy to have finally read it It should be on the to read list of educators and parents To learn and to grow, children first need to be ready to learn and to grow However, how and what we need to learn today can differ significantly from the requirements of our ancestors Evolution equipped us with an early warning system, the limbic system of our brains and its marvelous filter, the amygdala This system connects sensory [...]

    5. It certainly contains a lot of useful info, but boy, is it ever dense Reading it is like hacking your way through a dense jungle with a dull machete It must also be noted that it is most definitely of the school of 80 s 90 s hard wired thinking about the brain, and hard sells the view that, to put it simply, mind comes from brain, and not the other way around In other words, nature, not nurture For comparison, try Sharon Begley s Train Your Mind, Change Your Brain, which, oddly enough, has a pre [...]

    6. I read this book after a big break up and it really opened my eyes to how I contributed to that break up It s extremely important to have emotional intelligence and this is a fascinating discussion behind the theory and science of EI.

    7. Recommended to If you think you don t have a high IQ and thus, your are condemned to a mediocre life What this book is about The apostleship of the book is twofold, Firstly it is to convince you that EQ matters far than IQ in achieving high levels of success and it does it perfectly through providing N 1 lengthy repetitive case studies.Second, it provides an almost accurate introduction to what EQ is, what elements contribute to a high EQ and finally what the consequences of strength and weakne [...]

    8. I had to read this book for a leadership academy I was in and I found this to be a surprisingly good experience.The book introduces and explains the concept of emotional intelligence, which, since beginning to read the book, I see is so much important than almost any other awareness one could have on a day to day basis personally and professionally.Don t be shocked, if, in describing the many levels of emotional intelligence or lack thereof, you immediately think of friends, family, and coworke [...]

    9. If you re like me, you re extremely leery of anything that reeks of pop psychology But Emotional Intelligence has no such odor First, author Daniel Goleman is the real deal He has his PhD, of course, as do many snake oil salesmen, but unlike these others, Goleman has academic street cred he founded an institute at Yale, heads up another at Rutgers, and wrote science columns for the New York Times.At first glance, I can see that this book, though written than 10 years ago, still packs a punch We [...]

    10. There are some interesting things in the book, things that are hard to disagree with, such as emotional skills and self knowledge are important I think a lot of people who liked this book focused on that self help aspect I have no problem with that My problems with this book stem from the wider claims Goleman makes for EQ as a mental function Goleman bases this aspect of his theory on some whopping assumptions The biggest one is the idea that emotional intelligence even exists The main aspects o [...]

    11. The subtitle Why It Can Matter More Than IQ is misleading It should be Why It MIGHT Matter More Than IQ provided you re comparing people of similar age, education, background, career, aspiration, social economic status, race, ethnicity, gender, and so on and so forth The group that was looked at in this book was executives, and what the author found was that the thing that set these people apart from their peers and others vying for the same positions is people skills When you re good with peopl [...]

    12. Emotional Intelligence produced such conflicting feelings in me that I am torn as to what to write about it For the most part, it is well written, intelligent and compelling The messages are simple yet profound, and I have to agree that the importance of social and emotional skills can t be understated On some level I think Daniel Goleman and I think in much the same way, and even though the book is 15 years old now, on the whole it is as applicable as it ever was disclaimer angry rant coming up [...]

    13. I think the best part of the book is when he explained about the five major components of the emotional intelligence as 1 Self awareness Recognize and understand your own moods and motivations and their effect on others To achieve this state, you must be able to monitor your own emotional state and identify your own emotions Emotional Maturity in this trait shows Confidence Sense of humor can laugh at self Aware of your impression on others can read the reactions of others to know how you are pe [...]

    14. 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 [...]

    15. I read this years ago the reading date of 2004 is entirely arbitrary and I m writing this at the end of 2015.I remember the essential messages vividly, especially his discussion of why emotional thresholds differ, and the importance of counting to 10 to let the rational brain kick in over the primitive amygdala response A good deep breath goes a long way.I love the concept of emotional intelligence very useful in dealing with others.

    16. A difficult book to review and my 2 stars are an honest reflection on what I gained personally from reading the book, rather than what the world gained from the book having been written.This was clearly a groundbreaking and seminal work, particularly in bringing the important topic of emotional intelligence to a wide audience However, that doesn t necessarily make it a worthwhile read 20 years later, particularly for those in search of practical advice There is a significant focus on how the bra [...]

    17. Insightful book on the importance of relating well with others and being in tune with one s emotions.Poignant Quotes.dhood and adolescence are critical windows of opportunity for setting down the essential emotional habits that will govern our livescial intelligence is both distinct from academic abilities and a key part of what makes people do well in the practicalities of lifecial competence how well or poorly people express their own feelingsWith a complaint a person criticizes the other pers [...]

    18. When I first read this book in 1995 the year it was published it was required reading for my job in human resources consulting, and I found it amazing and insightful Fifteen years later it still has some good things to say, but knowing how we ve not only ignored Goleman s advice but actually run in the opposite direction empathy, anyone it just made me sad The book concerns itself with a key set of characteristics he calls emotional intelligence abilities such as being able to motivate oneself a [...]

    19. Firstly, I don t agree with the title of the book One shouldn t matter than the other but rather, there needs to be a balance of IQ, EQ and CQ We need every aspect of intelligence and not just have a push pull relationship like This is important but oh, this matters less that THAT intelligence Most of the contents in the books seemed unnecessary to me It is mainly the author just rambling on and on about all the stories he heard in all his life of other people or at least, it seems like it and [...]

    20. The funny thing about reading old seminal books that have already made their point is that your natural attitude toward their genius society shaking discoveries is duh Emotions are important duh.Emotional competence is a better predictor of success than intelligence duh Once you recognize your emotions, they lose their power, as you are able to manage with reason duh duh Anger works like Super Mario Bros triggering events in quick succession cause you to jump up higher and higher unless you com [...]
