Emotional Intelligence by Daniel Goleman.
He taught psychology at Harvard and was a scientific contributor to the New York Times for many years. He is one of the world’s most highly regarded consultants, according to his introduction.
The back cover of the book says: “ Why people hired on the basis of classic intelligence tests, turn out to be unfit for their job? Why does a very IQ not protect them from major failures?”
Daniel Goleman emphasises the importance of emotional components even in the rational functions of thought and explains why success or failure in the decisive areas of life are determined by a complex mixture in which factors such as self-control, perseverance and empathy play a predominant role.
This is the kind of reading I have always been appassionate about. I’ve just started to read it, I don’t know what to expect but it will be interesting to find out it.
