Having read Dr. Manz's other works and having used his Mastering Self-Leadership book (co-authored with Dr. Christopher Neck) in my university classes, I was familiar with his philosphies and approaches to handling challenges in life. However, the timing for me in reading this book could not have come at a better time. The theme of Emotional Discipline is that we can manage our emotions to bring rewards and reduce stress even in the most dire of circumstances. I had brought the book to read on my plane ride after a week long national academic conference. Before boarding the plane, however, I had just endured a grueling 1 1/2 hour wait in a security line before I could even enter my plane's gate in Seattle. While in line, I brought attention to airport workers that my departure time was drawing near, and asked if I could be sped through line to get to my plane. I was told that my airline would come out and bring their customers through when the departure time drew near. Well, Southwest and Continental airlines came out to help their customers, but my airline (heck, I'll tell you who it was--Delta) did not. Finally, after getting to the security check, I was pulled out of line for inspection. It was 12:50 p.m. when this happened, and my flight was to leave at 12:55 p.m. Finally, I made it to my gate, and the airline workers informed me that they almost left without me. Once aboard the plane, I asked the attendants why they had not sent anyone out to help their customers like the other airlines. Their answer was it wasn't their responsibility, and that it was my fault for almost missing the plane. I don't mind waiting on a plane due to delays, but being blamed as a customer for an organization's bureaucratic failings doesn't go over well with me.Read more ›

I highly recommend "Emotional Discipline" by Dr. Charles Manz if you are looking for a way to improve the quality of your life. Emotional Discipline offers a step-by-step process and a toolbox of strategies to help you choose how you feel-one of the most important ways through which we experience life. Through a variety of mediums and examples, Dr. Manz illustrates innovative and time-tested strategies that address the mind, body, and spirit.
Dr. Manz doesn't sugar coat things; he acknowledges that applying emotional discipline isn't always an easy process. Making better emotional discipline choices requires work and persistence-however the rewards of a better life and better relationships are well worth the effort.
I highly recommend Emotional Discipline.

Excellent. My first 5 star review on Amazon. This is a solid, well researched book containing lots of strategies on how to manage ones emotions. This is thankfully absent of too much fluff and has plenty of meat. I have employed these methods since I read it and it has quite honestly been the best EQ book I have come across. I finally feel like I am in the drivers seat of my emotions, rather than they be driving me.

If you want workable strategies on mastering emotions - look no further. Well done Manz.

Format: Paperback
"Emotional Discipline" ... a Manz first for me. I ordered 2 of his books at the same time from this seller after reading Goleman's "Emotional Intelligence" and "Social Intelligence", both very impressive reads.

Hopefully a reader gleans some benefit from these pages. I skipped over all his "poems", actually grimacing each time he presented another offering; I love poetry. Really "too little time" to take in the really 'move me off the page' stuff out there... if I make time, I look for depth of material; why bother if the stuff doesn't stimulate your brain to process. With Manz's stuff I felt like I had definitely wandered into the shallow end of the pool. What proved a most helpful construct - for me - the 5 steps, the skeleton that he fleshes out the rest of the book around.

All in all, just not worth the price. So get ye to the city Library for this one, if ye be interested in "getting it". As always Amazon's service was wonderful.

It's one of those books that I'll keep on my bedstand and refer to again and again. It incorporates a nice combination of mental and physical solutions that are easy to follow and make sense. The techniques must be working because I'm happier and my family is too.
