Great book about Emotional Intelligence skills and sub-skills. Very detailed. The language is easy to understand. Examples are simple and relevant. I'd suggest to read this if you're curious how emotions impact your actions, interactions, and decision-making.

This book summarizes well the 15 areas of EQi AND the research on how they relate to success. Most of the self-identification questions are useful, and there are many good exercises for improving your own emotional intelligence. You can actually increase your EQi so it's worth investigating what is holding you back from fulfillment and how you might improve your ability to succeed at what is most important to you.

"Kita punya Segunung Emosi yang setiap saat akan tereksplosi. Pandai-pandailah mengendalikan emosi untuk hal2 yang positif. Jika yang terjadi sebaliknya adalah bomerang yang didapat".

Meski sering dibaca buku ini sulit dipraktikan, karena terkadang bertentangan dengan apa yg gw harapkan.

Very eye opening and useful... things one would thing about and somewhere in the back of our minds know about but never attempt to practice or use until this book. If you are looking for a book to better yourself this is it.

Has great exercises, explains each point well. I think everyone could benefit from this book. EQ is very important in our holistic health, our success in family and friends and career. Highly recommended.

It's one of the best EQ books I have, easy subject index in the back of the book. Some parts read like stereo instructions, but overall it's been good.

The book is very interesting and hands-on!

I have read it when I had issues with time pressure and didn't have enough time and skills to really understand myself. Some exercise from the book are amazing. Like, ABCDE-exercise for example. Elegant and simple tool to work with your underlying beliefs!

Although I was always thinking that its kind of not quite "XXI century" to make it on paper, so I has even started developing an app for that, and its in development right now. Hope, I will finish it so

I have just reread this book as I am finding I am continuing to do more EQ work with clients who are looking to achieve greater personal and professional success - and it supports the Bar-On EQi and Bar_On EQ360 instruments which I am accredited to administer. The book examines the various EQ scales and sub-scales with both practical examples and self assessment exercises. Further details at http://www.peterblackcoaching.com/Hom...

I had just completed a workshop on Emotional Intelligence, so this book rounded out the theory nicely. Beyond that, though, are some practical exercises - keep your journal handy! The writing wasn't gripping, but worth a read.

Helpful as part of the EQi assessment and coach, but I'm not sure how helpful without that additional support

I thought I would really like this book, but I just couldn't make a connection. I want to explore the EQ subject more but will have to with another book.
