This program features a new introduction read by Daniel Goleman and a bonus dialogue between the author and Jon Kabat-Zinn.
It is the tenth anniversary since the first publication of Daniel Goleman's groundbreaking bestseller, Emotional Intelligence which maps the territory where IQ meets EQ, where we apply what we know to how we live. Spending over a year on the New York Times bestseller list, Emotional Intelligence provided the evidence for what many successful people already knew: being smart isn't just a matter of mastering facts; it's a matter of mastering your own emotions and understanding the emotions of the people around you.
This is a great audiobook and I could not stop listening until I had finished it. I love stuff like this and really enjoyed this one.
I struggled to get through this book - narration wasn’t that engaging and I had read an abridged version (even worse narration) which didn’t seem to bear any resemblance to this book which irked me. I still like the concept as introduced in the audiobook summary, so I may still research this subject more. In terms of how the brain works, I found The Chimp Paradox by Dr Steve Peters more interesting.
