Editorial Reviews

Review

Emotional Success is as inspiring as it is practical. DeSteno shows us how to use our feelings of gratitude, compassion, and authentic pride to improve our lives—and the world.”—Arianna Huffington, author of Thrive and The Sleep Revolution.
 
"Are high achievers simply blessed with more willpower than the rest of us? DeSteno's provocative argument is that the science of success is, in fact, very much the science of social emotions like gratitude and compassion. I, for one, am convinced!"—Angela Duckworth, author of Grit.
 
“One of the leading psychologists of our time has discovered the keys to success: our emotions. They give us strength, they help us stick to our goals, they make us better friends and better people. DeSteno shows how gratitude, compassion, and—surprisingly—pride are essential to the good life. Emotional Success is a beautifully written and very important book.”—Paul Bloom, professor of Psychology at Yale University and author of Against Empathy: The Case for Rational Compassion

“If you think the key to self-control is overriding your emotions, think again. Moral emotions can strengthen your willpower—and this fascinating book uses the latest social science to explain how.”—Adam Grant, author of Give and Take, Originals, and Option B with Sheryl Sandberg
 
"A revolutionary way to achieve our goals that promises to make us happier, healthier, and more resilient along the way. Using persuasive prose and cutting-edge science, DeSteno shows how we can attain grit and grace—the perseverance to succeed combined with the qualities that inspire others as well."—Chade-Meng Tan, author of Joy on Demand and Search Inside Yourself
 
“Anyone who hopes to live a more meaningful and fulfilling life should read this book. DeSteno reveals the hidden power of “prosocial emotions,” feelings like pride (but without hubris), gratitude, and compassion. He relies on research rather than anecdote to convince us that these emotions underlie grit and emotional intelligence.”—Peter Salovey, Professor of Psychology and President, Yale University, and discoverer of emotional intelligence
 
 

About the Author

DAVID DESTENO is a professor of psychology at Northeastern University, where he directs the Social Emotions Group. He is a fellow of the Association for Psychological Science and the American Psychological Association, for which he serves as editor-in-chief of the journal Emotion. His work has been repeatedly funded by the National Science Foundation and has been regularly featured in the media, including the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, CBS Sunday Morning, NPR's Radiolab and Talk of the Nation, and USA Today. He is the author of The Truth About Trust (featured in articles and videos at Harvard Business Review) and coauthor of the Wall Street Journal spotlight psychology bestseller Out of Character. He frequently writes about his research for the New York Times, the Boston Globe, Harvard Business Review, Pacific Standard, and the Atlantic. At the broadest level, his work examines the mechanisms of the mind that shape vice and virtue. Studying hypocrisy and compassion, pride and punishment, cheating and trust, his work continually reveals that human moral behavior is much more variable than most would predict.
