Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

First popularized by Daniel Goleman in his book Emotional Intelligence: Why It Can Matter More Than IQ, the concept of emotional intelligence is now widely accepted, not only within the psychological arena, but also, ever-increasingly, within the business world. In The Emotional Intelligence Quick Book, authors Bradberry and Greaves outline techniques anyone can use to achieve goals in an easier and more fulfilling way, improve relationships, enhance health, and become more accomplished in the work force. Starting with a discussion on what emotional intelligence (EQ, for short) is and how it impacts our lives, Bardberry and Greaves then provide readers with instructions for determining their own EQ via the book’s companion Web site (the passcode for doing so can be found on the inside of the book’s dust jacket). They also provide a variety of ways readers can increase their EQ and put it to use in their personal and professional lives. Based on research with more than 500,000 people, The Emotional Intelligence Quick Book is exactly that, a quick and easy-to-read resource that empowers readers to master their EQ and more effectively incorporate it into all aspects of their daily lives. Larry Trivieri Jr.

Review

"Research shows convincingly that EQ is more important than IQ in almost every role and many times more important in leadership roles. This finding is accentuated as we move from the control philosophy of the industrial age to an empowering release philosophy of the knowledge worker age. Self-awareness, self-motivation, and regulation are foundational to empathy and social skills. This book gives abundant, practical findings and insights with emphasis on how to develop EQ."
-- Dr. Stephen R. Covey, author, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People and The 8th Habit: From Effectiveness to Greatness

"All sentient beings possess awareness, but among them human beings possess great intelligence. Subject to a constant stream of positive and negative thoughts and emotions, what distinguishes us as human beings is that we are capable of positive change. The Emotional Intelligence Quickbook succinctly explains how to deal with emotions creatively and employ our intelligence in a beneficial way."
-- the Dalai Lama

"If you're wondering why your career is stalled or plateaued -- or if you simply want to get on the fast track to the next level -- this book is a must-read...."
-- Lois P. Frankel, Ph.D., New York Times bestselling author, Nice Girls Don't Get the Corner Office: 101 Unconscious Mistakes Women Make That Sabotage Their Careers

The book itself is a quick read and doesn't go into much depth.

This is the most thought-provoking book I've read in a long time. Without being simplistic, it introduced me to so many interesting things I could use to my benefit. 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.

I use this book and the online EQ appraisal as a coaching tool in my consulting work with managers and professionals. It's easy to read and gives us a common language for discussing key points about emotional intelligence. I especially like the self-assessment of personal and social competence as a non-threatening way to help people identify destructive reationship behaviors and create strategies to improve their abiltiy to relate to others. A simple, practical and useful approach to the topic of emotional intelligence.

Format: Kindle Edition
When you buy the Kindle edition of this book, you do not receive a code to take the emotional intelligence appraisal. On hardcover editions, this code is on the reverse side of the dust jacket. While the book does say that it is not absolutely necessary to take the appraisal, I would like to have the option of taking it or not. I contacted customer service about this issue and the reply was they try to ensure that the kindle edition is as close as possible to the original, but sometimes there are differences.

If you don't know the difference between your I.Q. and your E.Q. and how much it matters in the workplace, then read this book--especially if you're a supervisor, manager, director or CEO. There's even an on-line test to see how you rate.

Run--don't walk--and get this book. Better yet: order it right now on Amazon :-) (Your employees will thank you!)

I first read about this book in a Newsweek article and it's intriguing. Quite frankly, I normally am bored by these kind of books but I couldn't put this one down. The authors tested more than 500,000 people and they turn the findings into practical strategies anyone can pick up and use. I highly recommend this book for anyone who wants to be the best they can be.

Format: Hardcover
As a self-admitted antagonist of emotional intelligence, I have always thought EI was a fad concept that would quickly pass. Because of this book, that has changed. The EI QuickBook brings a new, fresh perspective to the field...and does it swiftly! The stories are rich and effective and skillfully intertwined among theoretical and practical research on EI. If you read only one book on Emotional Intelligence...this is it.

Emotional intelligence is such a crucial concept to understand--yet so many of us are unaware of it. The authors do a magnificient job of explaining the incredible power of emotional intelligence and how to apply it to achieve your ultimate goals. This book was a great help to me and is an awesome success tool.

Format: Hardcover
When you take the time to read a book you should be either entertained to be learn something . This book positions itself as an educational book but is merely a tool to promote the authors' website and side business. For example, they encourage you to go to their website and take their quiz which they insist is not a "cosmo quiz". Before you take their quiz, be sure to find and write down the code in the jacket of the book. Great gimmicks. I did not feel that their goal was to teach their readers about emotional intelligence but more likely to get us to look into their business.

The simplistic diagrams of the brain in the book attempt to get readers to think that this is a scientific book with ample research behind it. The authors state that "emotional intelligence" is searched more on the web than "John Travolta". Who cares? If you write a short a book then you better make it dense with stuff that readers can use. This is a total waste of time. I have not read any other books on emotional intelligence but I certainly would not recommend this one.
