5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding, March 6, 2010
This review is from: Emotional Intelligence 2.0 (Hardcover)
I was very impressed with this book. It's the first I've seen that actually shows you how to increase your emotional intelligence, rather than just explaining what emotional intelligence is. It's filled with strategies to increase each of the four emotional intelligence skills: self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, and relationship management. I found the strategies very helpful, particularly because the books gives access to an online test that (based upon your results) tells you which strategies will increase your EQ the most.

The authors use excellent anecdotes to illustrate various concepts, and their research is compelling and original. Some of the information on emotional intelligence and job title (e.g. CEOs have the lowest EQs in the workforce, on average), is very revealing. My favorite anecdote in the book is the riveting story of a surfer who survives a run in with a 5,000 pound great white, by using his emotional intelligence.

All in all, an outstanding read that's a great value at $13!

How is it that this reviewer has only ever reviewed "Emotional Intelligence 2.0"? Methinks I smell a conspiracy to sell more copies of this book. Perhaps Mr. Baier was ordered to plant this gushing review at the behest of the authors and/or publisher.

Huh? Instead of looking for a conspiracy, why not just assume it's his first review and he hasn't decided to write any others. I read a ton of books but I only think to review the ones that touch me the most.

EDIT: ok so after checking a ton of the 5 star reviews, most of them are first time reviews. That is very suspicious. I think you might be right ZuluQueen; seems like the ratings are being artificially inflated.

Self help and business books are rampant with astroturfing. "EI" is just agreeableness from the Big 5.
