The key lies in what the authors call "emotional agility," the ability to access our full range of emotions - not just the "good" ones - in order to respond most effectively to whatever situation we might encounter. Drawing on years of scientific research and a wide array of real-life examples including sports, the military, parenting, education, romance, business, and more, The Upside of Your Dark Side is a refreshing reality check that shows us how we can truly maximize our potential.

Comfort is killing us
Interesting listen, well read. I totally agree with the 'Whole Person' the authors assert. The discussion on Narcissism was both surprising and delightful. What captured me immediately, and I believe deserves further exploration--maybe even another book--was the topic of how comfort has totally influenced our culture. Defines our culture is probably more accurate, and the unintended consequences of heated seats, and perfectly designed coffee holders.

food for thought
This book teaches to understand myself and others from a holistic point of view. It allowed me to see myself as a whole with positive and negative emotions; but most of all, it shows how to use these emotions so I can be a better person.
