From the Back Cover
Research has told us that to be successful in our personal and professional lives we need emotional intelligence (EQ). In this book, leading psychologist Dr Martyn Newman shows us how to get it and use it to achieve extraordinary results.
Emotional Capitalists is an engaging and entertaining book that demands every leader's attention... Martyn Newman has done a masterful job of researching and writing this book. He has given us an easily accessible, refreshingly readable, and remarkably practical work.

Martyn Newman's Emotional Capitalists is one of those insightful books that steps away from the theory of leadership [and] challenges one's self perception of one's own. Emotional Capitalists is therefore key reading for anyone wanting to make it happen!
