Summary

Do you believe your life would be healthier, happier, and even better if you had more practical strategies to regulate your own emotions?
Most people agree with that.
Or, more importantly: Do you believe you'd be healthier and happier if everyone who you live with had the strategies to regulate their emotions?
Right?
The truth is not too many people actually realize what EQ is really all about and what causes its popularity to grow constantly.
Scientific research conducted by many American and European universities proves that "common" intelligence responses account for only less than 20 percent of our life achievements and successes, while the other more than 80 percent depends on emotional intelligence. To put it roughly: Either you are emotionally intelligent or you're doomed to mediocrity at best.
As opposed to the popular image, emotionally intelligent people are not the ones who react impulsively and spontaneously or who act lively and fiery in all types of social environments.
Emotionally intelligent people are open to new experiences; can show feelings adequate to the situation, either good or bad; and find it easy to socialize with other people and establish new contacts. They handle stress well, say no easily, realistically assess the achievements of themselves or others, and are not afraid of constructive criticism and taking calculated risks. They are the people of success. Unfortunately this perfect model of an emotionally intelligent person is extremely rare in our modern times.
Sadly, nowadays the amount of emotional problems in the world is increasing at an alarming rate. We are getting richer but less and less happy. Depression, suicide, relationship breakdowns, loneliness of choice, fear of closeness, addictions - this is the clear evidence we are getting increasingly worse when it comes to dealing with our emotions.

Good content, but didn't like the narrator

What did you like most about Emotional Intelligence?

Having listened to a couple of other EQ books so far, this seemed to have the most comprehensive contents yet. It was informative and helpful.

Who was your favorite character and why?

N/A

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Completely personal opinion, but I found the narrator's voice and accent annoying. I'm from the UK, and whereas many American narrators are easy to listen to, I personally found this chap's voice grated on me. There are also many times where it comes across in the narration that he hasn't read and understood the content first, so some bits are read a little awkwardly. If this book had a different narrator I'd definitely listen to it again as the content is good. Maybe I should buy the paper copy instead...

Very Good Information

I've just recently discovered the topic of childhood emotional neglect (CEN) and am beginning to see things in a new way. This book is an amazing tool to build the emotional intelligence that most of us weren't taught as children. Thank you Ian.
