Unabridged / Go to Abridged Audiobook

Written By: Prof. Daniel Goleman Ph.D.

Narrated By: Barrett Whitener

Publisher: Macmillan Audio

Date: March 2003

Duration: 13 hours 33 minutes

Summary:

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.

    The book's hype is deserving but over done. It reads often like a textbook with too much data. Other times it misses some much needed explanations of how the therapies are conducted. Long winded. In the end, your patience will pay off. It did help.

    Unfortunately the author does his book a disservice by reading it. He has a dry, monotone voice which doesn't add any interest to a text that is already relatively dry. This book had a few interesting points such as emotional intelligence begins in infancy and discusses the facets of this intelligence: self-awareness, self-control, empathy and thinking before acting out. However because both the text and author's voice were dull, I found this book hard to get through and not very interesting.

    Having read a number of other more current books on behavior and decision-making, this classic seems outdated and totally geared toward parents with children in their developmental years.

    seems a bit outdated. i guess because i've read more recent books with the same concepts.

    The book described emotional intelligence and how it can be identified primarily in children. I had hoped for guidance on how to identify and develop the intelligences (in adults.)

    After listening to this book, I decided to get a copy for my library. I found it fascinating and eye opening. There were so many good nuggets of information that were substantiated with credible evidence, giving the book more substance then just information. I am convinced that this book will guide a parent, teacher, child, student into a new awareness and understanding of the nature of rational and emotional intelligence in human beings. This understanding has the potential to shape our lives and give new meaning to intelligence. A must read for parents and teachers.

    This book has very important information to know as you're trying to raise healthy, happy children. The author gives important lessons to pass on to your children. However, it was harder for me to absorb all of the information I wanted to know while listening to the book instead of reading it and highlighting things myself.

    Neat topic though the presentation was anything but.
