  • (5/5)
    I had high expectations and the author succeeded to deliver, with a sense of humour and a clear insight into EQ. I found this to be incredibly insightful and also I've learnt a few tips, mostly eveything was an overall revision. Nothing was repeated which I hate during some books.. Futhermore, I loved the fact you were able to give examples and reasons behind certain emotions. Thank YOU

    Extremely boring and painful to listen at times! The reader kept reading as if he was the gender in order to have intonation and emphasis differences. It was just awful.

    I really wanted to like this book, but it was really hard to focus on what was being said. Many of the examples related to someone in a co--working environment, which is not my experience since I am a business owner.

    Also the cliches were over the top. Really quite disappointed with this one, and I am moving onto another book that focuses on EQ.

    This book is one of the most important books you will read. I plan to have my 10 year old read it. I consider myself very self aware, but there are still some items I needed to work on. Please read this book. More than once. Keep for reference.

    I do not like the writing style. It is too preachy, not scientific.

    Good book with sensible advice to manage emotions and increase social awareness. I think it could have benefited from more examples that were not super generic, perhaps more real life examples. Overall, a good introduction to emotional intelligence.

    Ridiculous and shallow to the point of being offensive. Goleman's first book on emotional intelligence was good. This one is crap.
    The online test is a joke. The questions are so dependent on the way you see yourself and your behaviour, that even an emotional idiot could come up with a very high QE if that's how he sees himself!

    This is one of those books that keeps popping up on the Goodreads giveaway page, and while I have never won a copy, I decided to pick it up when I glanced it on the shelf at my local library.What is Emotional Intelligence? Apparently, it's a rating of how you apply your emotions to your daily life, similar to the way your Intelligence Quotient rates, well, intelligence. In fact, it is surprisingly called "EQ" in order to relate itself to IQ, even though it seems to me that it should then be called "Emotional Quotient."After finding out about EQ and how it affects various aspects of your life, the writers go over some proven strategies that will help the reader improve the different elements of their Emotional Intelligence; Self Awareness, Self Management, Social Awareness, and Relationship Management. All four are important for a healthy EQ, and unlike IQ, which is a number that cannot be changed, EQ just takes some practice using the techniques laid out in this book.Now, apparently there is some online quiz the reader can take with a special code provided in the back of the book, this being a library copy, the code was already revealed and, I'm assuming, used. However, knowing myself I know there are certain aspects of my EQ that need work, and several strategies mentioned seem like they might be of some help, so I'll give them a try.

    When I read a concept multiple times, it helps me remember it better and also put it to practice more confidently. For example, this book emphasizes self-awareness as the first and the foremost concept towards a higher EQ. Ms. Kelly McGonigal has said 'Without self-awareness, self-control is useless.' in The Willpower Instinct: There are some very simple and easy to practice self-awareness strategies. I could relate to a good number of them. The author discusses self-reflection as one of the strategies in knowing yourself. I personally have been practicing (only to some extent) to answer the following questions - What am I feeling?, Why am I feeling it?, and What should I do about it? - should definitely start doing it more.Relationship management strategies are explained so one can employ them not only with colleagues but in their personal lives as well. The 'Be Open and Be Curious' and 'Take feedback well' strategies sound relatively simple while the 'Only get mad on purpose' is clearly the more challenging one.Now for the downs. Page 31 gives a picture of IQ, EQ and Personality. It quotes: "Of the three, EQ is the only quality that is flexible and able to change." I'm not very sure of this statement. I've read a few articles online where experts are talking about how personalities changes occur over time. Proper brain training has also shown an improved IQ. The book itself mentions "'Plasticity' is the term neurologists use to describe the brain’s ability to change." on page 74 clearly contradicting its previous statement. Normam Doidge gives many examples of how people changed their entire lives because of a 'plastic' brain in his book - The Brain That Changes Itself. Now, if the author meant to say 'EQ is the easiest to change among them' - that is a different ball game altogether.And yes, as others mentioned, the ebook version lacks the code required to take the test.
