Excellent Book, I highly recommend this book,
This review is from: Emotional Intelligence For Dummies (Paperback)
This book deals with all the difficulties I have had with my relationships. Little things would upset me and I would take it out on the people around me, just because I I was in a bad mood. Now, I think twice and try to put the upset into perspective in the grand scheme of things. I also use the technique of thinking will this matter in a few days,,,,,,a few weeks,,,,,, a few months,,,,,, and of course, it won't.
I work with some people I don't like also. In the corporate world, some people are strictly focused on getting ahead, looking good, career advancement, doing as little as possible etc. Not values I share. When I must interact with them, after reading this book, although it is still my first reaction to get annoyed when I am confronted with their self serving agenda, on Dr.Stein's advice, I take a step back, I actively work on being pleasant instead of annoyed and I keep my interactions short.
I highly recommend this book for anyone who wants to improve their own life by working on their interpersonal relationships.
