Publisher's Summary

If you want to know yourself more deeply, and how to use emotional intelligence to live an happy life and fulfilled, then keep reading…

For the longest time, it was believed that being book smart was all you needed to get by in life. That is until a different kind of smart was introduced into the picture. Emotional intelligence is essentially the kind of smart you need to be in order understand your emotions, relate well to people, and handle the curveballs that life may throw at you. People with emotional intelligence seem to have everything figured out because they have mastered the most important thing of all: They have mastered themselves.

Emotional Intelligence is a handbook on all things that you may have questions about regarding your emotional quotient, or EQ. It explores the various aspects of EQ from why we have emotions to why we need them. It explains why emotional intelligence might get you further in life than IQ without necessarily diminishing the very important role played by book smarts in your life. It goes further to bust the popular myths about emotional intelligence that exist, allowing you to distinguish the truths from the misconceptions. 

This book is dedicated to helping you explore the various components of emotional intelligence and show you how you can improve at each of them. It discusses the role of emotional intelligence at home and in the workplace and helps you identify simple ways to go from low EQ to high EQ. 

Inside you will discover:

  • What emotional intelligence is and why raising your EQ is so important.
  • How emotional intelligence affects your relationships and your work.
  • The importance of empathy.
  • How to manage and reduce energy vampires.

And much more…

If you have been struggling to understand where your emotions fit in the overall picture of your life or what you can do to achieve greatness in your personal and professional life, then this book is perfect for you.

Dull and Obvious

In full disclosure, I have only listened to half the book so far. I just can't take it anymore. I've learned nothing yet. It's way too dry. I am returning this book.

It reads like an outline of E.I. with almost no delving deep into the psychology of E.I. The author provides examples of how a person should act in certain scenarios, but these ideas are much too simplistic and often obvious.

If you are a person with virtually zero social skills, then this might be okay for you, but for most people, it's a list of obvious statements of things we already know. It's probably best for socially awkward young teens.

Low EQ in men?

He says "he" often when he describes examples of poor emotional intelligence. I wonder if men have low emotional intelligence by default or if this book is focused on men... hmmmm 🤔

Best as an INTRO only to EQ

This book is best used as an intro to EQ. The book contains a lot of concepts in references to other full fledged EQ books, however this book in itself is not one that I would ever recommend that someone use if they need to increase their EQ. It is also not helpful if someone needs to have exercises or any kind of practical application for having a better EQ. The test at the end of the book is also something that would give anyone with real EQ problems a very false sense of security and could lead them to think that they have EQ when they actually don't. This book is best used to get a very general awareness of the topic but not To actually increase their iccu or to get a deep understanding of the topic, not at all.

Not very emotionally intelligent, but good info

It’s written and performed in the tone of a disapproving father who ironically has low emotional intelligence in that the writing insults the reader on accident often. There’s a lot of chiding undesirable behavior instead of a focus on conveying the correct information, often written in the 2nd person, ie “before YOU throw your laptop out of the window...” etc. However there’s a lot of great information about developing emotional intelligence. So if one can stomach the smarmy tone both in the writing and performance, it’s worth a listen, but there are better books out there about emotional intelligence.

There is more to EQ

it's a bit of a failure to have a book on EQ and not mention autism anywhere in the book. Not everything is psychopathy

Interesting but expected more

The reviews were very good. I expected more of an improvement guide as opposed to generalities.

Disappointed, very poor practical contents

I felt far too much is about the advantage of having an high emotional intelligence with sloppy examples. I guess we know already that, that's the reason we bought this book. we are looking to improve, not justify the fact that it is important.

Practical advise to get better are sloppy, vagues, therefore barely practical.
I am disappointed.
