Publisher's Summary

You think you're a smart person, but you don't feel fully satisfied with your life, your work, and your social relationships? Well, having a high IQ is no guarantee of success and happiness in life.

The real formula for success is IQ + EQ.

But what actually is EQ and emotional intelligence?

To answer this question, Alexander W. Allen, starting from his knowledge in the field of neuroscience and psychology, leads us toward the discovery of emotions and teaches us how to recognize and control them in order to improve every aspect of our lives. 

The first part of the book focuses on theory and an overview of the key concepts necessary to fully understand emotional intelligence and its components.

The second part of the book moves from theory to practice and includes a series of advice and strategies on how to develop emotional intelligence and emotional quotient (EQ), both in the workplace and in everyday life.

In this audiobook, you will learn:

  • What emotions are and why they are so important
  • Why is it not enough to have a high IQ to be successful and happy
  • What is the importance of empathy
  • How emotions affect your relationships
  • How to improve your social skills
  • How to develop emotional intelligence through various exercises and strategies 
  • And much more...

The truth is the world is not waiting for you, and things are changing at a very high pace. It is, therefore, very important to take advantage of every opportunity you have to become a better person, enjoy life more, and be more competitive at work. It could be a starting point, or simply, your chance to become the person you want to be and live the life you wish for!

Good book for anybody

I love this book! The information is useful and applicable. This book brings clarity to an often misunderstood aspect of the human brain and the human condition. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It has helped me to overcome the primitive aspects of my emotional response.

Very interesting on what part emotions play

This was a solid book on the basics of EQ. It worked its way from the actual response in the brain to what shapes the response that a person will have. A big focus was towards children and the impact growing up has on a person. I would have liked to see more about the role of EQ in the work place and how to improve and develop better EQ int he workplace tough.

A interesting and insightful look

Even after 20 years this topic is just beginning to be taken seriously. Emotional Intelligence reminds us that people are more than a traditional IQ. Very valuable for anyone who wants to build a cohesive team or to learn to motivate others.

Sound like it was read by a robot. Annoying!

So many good reviews so I expected something special. It's so hard to listen to it. I don't think it deserves good reviews comparing to other books of that area of knowledge.

Best I have seen on Emotional Intelligence.

This book is very inspiring and informative. It presents information that is extremely relevant to today's workplace. Great book about how to be more emotionally intelligent and how true success is more predicated on being emotionally intelligent than just being intelligent.

I've recommended this book

I m still listening it but I am finding it very informative and insightful if you are interested in finding out bout emotional intelligence. The book goes into depth about when emotions "highjack" the person and ways to help negative emotions to subside.

Significant topic, questionable presentation

I'm not sure what I was expecting out of this book but it was more than that. I don't listen a lot of selfimprovement books or psychology stuff. I did listen this and I found it really interresting. I've found it has helped the way I think about my children, co workers, and husband. I've really enjoyed it.

Well researched and interesting book

I am constantly aware of my emotional reactions to situations so I wanted to find out how I can use new findings to understand the hows and whys of my emotions. This book is wonderful in explaining how to not react first to avoid later conflicts and to understand that emotions are not always realistic.

Vital knowledge on emotional intelligence

Easy to listen, informative and helpful. Challenges some myths on IQ and EQ. A must listen for young and up coming leaders.
