I've really enjoyed Susan David's Emotional Agility audiobook. Susan has managed to integrate academic research, personal stories and practical questions and tools into the book. She's blended these superbly to ensure the book is accessible to readers/listeners from any background. You don't need to have a psychology degree because it's not a heavy going academic book. You simply need to be interested in how emotionally agility can help you navigate life's ups and downs. Not since I read Carol Dweck's 'Mindsets' have I been so captivated by a book. I've re-read several chapters already because I wanted to properly reflect on the content in relation to my own life, and as part of my coaching training. The narration of the audiobook version is particularly good and has made it much easier to recall the key points from the book.

The book starts with a claim that emotional agility is a new concept, a step forward from 'emotional intelligence'. For me though it was a ragbag of existing older ideas (CBT, nudge, thinking fast and slow etc) without a coherent underpinning structure. It lacked practical advice and came across as glib at times in a 'just be true to yourself' way. Not a bad primer and pleasant enough to listen to but superficial and nothing new.

I found this audio book easy to listen, very insightful and thought provoking. I will buy the hard copy now so I can highlight sections to re-read. I am normally an exercise or drive to music person but for the last few days this is all I have wanted to listen too
Thank you Susan David (author) for your book and for audible for producing it via this means. i have learned more to add to my growing skill set of what it is to be human
