This book is great. In a concise, well-written manner, the authors provide insight into human interaction and emotional self-development. This guide will help you understand the thoughts and actions of you and those around you; as well as help you to become a better, happier (and potentially more wealthy) person. As President of a software development firm, this book really enlightened me in regards to how I interact with my employees and how everyone in my firm interacts with our customers. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for self-development, or as an employee resource for any industry.

Being intellectually smart is surely a strong advantage in our society, but it doesn't say nearly as much as your control and awareness over your own emotions. Have you ever wondered why you have emotions, how your brain works to process them, and how you can use them to your own advantage? I've never read a book that so clearly explains how it all works and what to do with it. This book offers an enormous variety of invaluable, fact-based information which is sure to help you with your relationships, your family, your career, and most important, knowing yourself.

This book is just great. I think it will end up being a bestseller once the word gets out.
Regarding the content of the book, I agree with the authors that EI has been more important than my IQ. I always thought that because I was considered extremely intelligent that I should be able to control something that was fact; not fully realizing the emotional side of the situation.
I rate this book a 5, because I enjoyed it and learned something. It's had a real impact upon my life at work and at home.

Emotional intelligence is such an interesting and powerful way to think about our own behavior and what makes us tick. I learned a ton from this book and the free online EQ test was a real bonus. It also had some movies with the test to teach emotional intelligence that were awesome! A+

This fast book is packed with knowledge and I noticed it shipped much faster than what I was told. I learned about the traits that predict more than half of our success in life. Skills like self-awareness and self-management can be learned by us even into adulthood. How refreshing! The authors make the case that we can apply these skills in marriage, business and life in general. This book is at its best in making the general case for EI by providing a sound biological underpinning.

As you read the book, you realize (again!)how simple you can turn truly important things when you master something, as the authors do in this easy reading book. A lot of people will be shocked by the facts that appear in the book.....a lot of mediocre people. This is a "level 5 must read" masterpiece for everyone who wants to try his best, in any discipline (I'm an Orthopaedic Surgeon myself).

Nice book. Probably the biggest "aha" was how important emotions are to our behavior everyday and how we can use them productively to influenc our success. Not that I ever really felt out of control, but I feel more in control after reading this interesting book. I recommend it.
