Self-assessment is subjective

I give it 3.5 stars. After purchasing the book, you are given a code to take the emotional intelligence appraisal test online. You rate yourself on a list of statements, like whether you can be counted on, handle stress well, get along with others, and handle conflict effectively. Then based on your responses, you are directed to certain strategies in the book, like practice the art of listening and catch the mood of the room. This is ineffective. Most people can't objectively rate their own behaviors and performance. If you know you are weak in certain areas (self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, and relationship management), you can practice the strategies in those chapters. However, if you are already aware of your weaknesses and want to improve, you're probably not deficient in emotional intelligence. You're better off selecting a book focused in the area you want to strengthen, such as communication, giving feedback, reading body language, building relationships, making conversations, etc.

Also, the book doesn't provide good illustrative examples where you can picture yourself in those situations and whether you're demonstrating emotional intelligence or not. The examples read like generic performance reviews -- "she sometimes comes across as defensive or aggressive. So for her to be more aware of her tone and language would be helpful." There's no context for these statements, like what was said that sounded defensive and what would have been a better alternative.

Better Printed or as a Pamphlet

Is there anything you would change about this book?

There are many numbered lists in this book that would be better if purchased as a printed book. There is a ton of "filler" information in this book. I would imagine this could be a Pamphlet. It is not worth the cost.

What was most disappointing about Travis Bradberry and Jean Greaves ’s story?

The narration was laughable. He reads experiences from men and women. Instead of just reading the experience he reads one (like a woman) in a high pitched voice, then one like an angry man, happy man… it was so bad, so distracting I could not take it anymore.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

Did Emotional Intelligence 2.0 inspire you to do anything?

Return it.

Beware!

If you could sum up Emotional Intelligence 2.0 in three words, what would they be?

No Code Supplied

What was one of the most memorable moments of Emotional Intelligence 2.0?

When I realised you need a code to take a online survey as part of the course and Audible didn't email it to me. I have been contacting them for weeks via email, online chat and phone and still no code. Shame.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

Yes, I found it fine

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, you need to break off to do the online test and get a score if you have the
Code!

Any additional comments?

Looking at the other reviews the code not being supplied is a common problem

Really interesting audiobook

Would you consider the audio edition of Emotional Intelligence 2.0 to be better than the print version?

I haven't read the print version, so I cannot comment

What did you like best about this story?

I liked that it came with the online content, and the straight forward advice to increasing your Emotional Intelligence

What does Tom Parks bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Tom has very expressive vocalism that keeps me interested, whereas factual books, I tend to monotone when I'm reading

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It has made me stop and think a few times, but the content is not particularly emotionally charged

Any additional comments?

An excellent addition to any library
