I made a wrong choice with this book. Let me tell you why I didn't care for it and why you might.
****Why I didn't like this book****
I was looking for a more tactical book. Something that provides me with actionable advice on how to increase my own EQ and possible, how to coach other to do the same (relevant to my job as a manager). I have had my EQ assessed and was looking for deeper information about the aspects measured and actionable advice about how to bolster my weak areas and leverage my strong areas. This book does not provide that type of information.
****Who might enjoy this book****
People who are more interested in learning about the psychological studies behind the scenes of EQ might find this book more to their liking. If you're interested in answering questions like "What is EQ?" and "How was EQ developed" and "Does research show that EQ is important to success?" then this book is probably for you. That said, you could probably answer those questions by reading a wikipedia article if you don't have a need to get deep into the subject matter.

I'm sure his work was groundbreaking, but authors such as Tal Ben-Shahar and Jonathan Haight have written works much fresher and offer more nuianced insights.

Superb resource, well recorded, plenty of good stuff, probably enough for most people...may try to get round to listening to the full book sometime.

A convincing argument for the benefits of teaching emotional intelligence and it's positive affects on all aspects of life. It conveys what EI actually is, and has inspired some conversations with my children about how they are feeling and I am chomping at the bit to teach them more; I am now looking for more of a 'how to' book with practical exercises to use on my children. One will especially benefit from it more than the other, who is more naturally in tune with others' feelings and always has been. I now have a lot more hope for the other one!
