I picked this book to read because I'm trying to read all of the books I own. I didn't think I would get through it so fast (it took 2 days but probably could've taken less had I been in the right headspace). I enjoyed how easy it was to read, since the language was more casual than technical. I also liked how it set up easy to follow guidelines for all of the different parts of emotional intelligence.

I couldn't help but wonder about the differences between gender and EQ ability, which they address slightly in the epilogue. I also couldn't help but wonder how much has changed in the 14 years since the book was published.

Overall, it was an interesting read. I may go back and actually follow along with the homework and activities listed in it some time in the future.

Best value in this book is that it provides an EQ assessment. Good book to coach someone through the four quadrants (Self-Awareness, Self-Management, Social Awareness, Relationship Management) and help them focus on their weakest quadrant.

It's okay. The first few chapters are very skimmable, and are taken up with a lot of anecdotal padding about example individuals that doesn't really address how emotional intelligence can be developed. Basically, the first chapters can be distilled down to: Emotional intelligence is an important quality in business and in life. The chapters that break down the four aspects of emotional intelligence and tools to develop each aspect are more useful and also more interesting.
