Book Description

Daniel Goleman offers a vital new curriculum for life that can change the future for us and for our children --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

From the Back Cover

REDEFINING WHAT IT MEANS TO BE SMART!

Is IQ destiny? Not nearly as much as we think. This fascinating and persuasive study argues that our view of human intelligence is far too narrow, ignoring a crucial range of abilities that matter immensely in terms of how we succeed in life.

Drawing on the latest in brain and behavioural research, Daniel Goleman shows the factors at work when people of high IQ flounder and those of modest IQ do well. These factors add up to a different way of being bright – one that he terms 'emotional intelligence'. This includes self-awareness and impulse control, persistence, zeal and self-motivation, empathy and social deftness: the qualities that mark people who excel in life, whose relationships flourish, who are stars in their work. Lack of emotional intelligence can sabotage the intellect and ruin their careers. The good news is that emotional intelligence is not fixed at birth. The author shows how its vital qualities can be nurtured and strengthened in all of us. And because the emotional lessons a child learns actually 'sculpt' and create the brain's circuitry, he provides guidance as to how parents and schools can best use this window of opportunity in childhood.

Daniel Goleman reports on the behavioural and brain sciences for 'The New York Times' and his articles appear throughout the world in syndication. He has taught at Harvard (where he earned his doctorate in psychology) and is the author of 'Vital Lies, Simple Truths,' and 'The Meditative Mind'.
