Excellent analysis and presentation on why emotional intelligence matters and how to improve it. Everyone. Read. ( )

If this book was taught in high school as part of mandatory curriculum perhaps humanity would be more successful as a whole. Goleman brilliantly explores why emotional intelligence far surpasses IQ in determining how people will fare in work and in personal relationships. He also draws insightful correlations between our emotional failings in these areas and health. A must read for every person on Earth! ( )

Halfway through, but make that another Summer read ... finished it!!! It was deep, hard read, way too scientific; I expected something more practical .... ( )

Knyga pasaulyje tapo bestseleriu. Ji siūlo naujai pažvelgti į intelekto ir emocijų kultūros reikšmę mūsų gyvenime. Autorius, profesionalus psichologas, daug metų tyrinėjo šią problemą ir nustatė, kad žmonės, kurių intelekto koeficientas gana kuklus, dažnai gyvena ir dirba nepalyginti sėkmingiau už tuos, kurių intelekto koeficientas aukštas. Kokia čia paslaptis? Tai emocijų intelektas, - teigia autorius. Jis siūlo pažinti save ir kitus, ugdyti emocijų kultūrą ir keisti savo ateitį.

Book description
De psycholoog Daniel Goleman introduceerde als eerste voor een breed publiek het begrip emotionele intelligentie (EQ), het belang van emotionele ABC. Het voelende brein bezit zelfkennis, zelfbeheersing, geestdrift, en het vermogen eigen emoties te herkennen en jezelf te motiveren. Emotionele vaardigheden blijken niet alleen belangrijker te zijn dan rationele, zij zijn van doorslaggevend belang voor succes in werk, relaties en voor ons lichamelijk welbevinden.
Emotionele intelligentie verscheen in 25 talen.
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 055309503X, Hardcover)

The Western cultures esteem analytical skills measured by IQ tests: but there is clearly more to success and happiness, even in technological societies, than IQ alone. Goleman has written one of the best books on the nature and importance of other kinds of intelligence besides our perhaps overly beloved IQ. Recommended.

Is IQ destiny? Not nearly as much as we think. Daniel Goleman's fascinating and persuasive book argues that our view of human intelligence is far too narrow, ignoring a crucial range of abilities that matter immensely in terms of how we do in life. Drawing on groundbreaking brain and behavioral research, Goleman shows the factors at work when people of high IQ flounder and those of modest IQ do surprisingly well. These factors add up to a different way of being smart - one he terms "emotional intelligence." Emotional intelligence includes self-awareness and impulse control, persistence, zeal and self-motivation, empathy and social deftness. These are the qualities that mark people who excel in real life: whose intimate relationships flourish, who are stars in the workplace. These are also the hallmarks of character and self-discipline, of altruism and compassion - basic capacities needed if our society is to thrive. Emotional intelligence is not fixed at birth. Goleman's argument is based on a highly original synthesis of current research, including new insights into the brain architecture underlying emotion and rationality. He shows precisely how emotional intelligence can be nurtured and strengthened in all of us. And because the emotional lessons a child learns actually sculpt the brain's circuitry, Goleman provides detailed guidance as to how parents and schools can be use this window of opportunity in childhood.… (more)
