The reason I am giving this a 3-star review is because after listening to the CD, I didn't come away with much practical advice. It's more like food for thought. Also, many of the anecdotes are from childhood (example: person x had something traumatic happen in his/her childhood, now that person exhibits signs of y as an adult). Ok, this is well and good, but it doesn't bring the lesson full circle to say, here's how to unlearn this pattern as an adult.
The one other thing that annoyed me was his voice at times. I want to be sensitive saying this, because I think he is most likely a very caring man who has devoted his life to doing good, but there was a condescending tone to many of the stories. It was almost like, as a listener who was trying to learn from the stories, I was already picking up his disdain for some of the behaviors.
I wouldn't say don't get this, but I'd say to buy with the intention of opening your mind to the concept rather than find practical ways to develop a well honed sense of emotional intelligence.
1. The ability to handle impulses
2. The ability to handle difficulties and setbacks
3. The ability to handle pressure and anxiety.
Overall Emotional Intelligence is our meta-level ability to handle emotions and use them to our advantage. I discuss in more detail in the video above.
A word of caution for prospective readers - this reads more like a textbook than a story. It is worth the effort but don't go in assuming the pages will fly by.
