Emotional intelligence

Author: Daniel Goleman
Publisher: New York : Bantam Books, 1995.
Edition/Format:   Print book : EnglishView all editions and formats
Is IQ destiny? Not nearly as much as we think. Daniel Goleman's fascinating and persuasive book 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 do in life. Drawing on groundbreaking brain and behavioral research, Goleman shows the factors at work when people of high IQ flounder and those of modest IQ do surprisingly well.
