1. Open the book and you are hit with several pages of endorsements from well-known people. Hard to miss the Dalai Lama's one as it is the first.
Further on, particularly towards the end of the book, it's evident that the authors could have practised some self-restraint in mentioning their company- the name-dropping is excessiv ...more

Some of the strategies in the four sections of the book felt like they were closely related.

Loy Machedo’s Book Review – Emotional Intelligence 2.0 by Travis Bradberry & Jean Greaves
Just think about this.
You have a recommendation from The Dalai Lama, Newsweek, The Washington Post, Newsday, Ken Blanchard and Marshall Goldsmith. And then to top it all, you have a foreword by (Ouch!) Patrick Lencioni himself!
Now do you need any other reason to be convinced why you should buy this book?
Before you decide to purchase this book, read the rest and only then decide.

An easy to read look at evaluating yourself and how you react & read others. This is a good skill finding book or refresher at the tenets of managing oneself and a team.
Learning to control and understand our emotions and how they move us into ineffective actions is something that should probably be taught at some point in our schooling. The skills here would be helpful; at least, the concept of the need to skill build ...more
Emotional intelligence. The concept has been floating around for so long that it would be easy for one to assume that it's a scientifically validated theory-- like IQ and personality measurements (which this book presents EQ alongside).
Unfortunately, as anyone who has done enough careful study knows, none of these three concepts are nearly as solid as many believe. EQ is the worst offender of all. Scientists have had incredib ...more
If you want it to be, this book can be a quick 250 pages of helpful tips. It will probably be more useful, though, read over a few days or even a few weeks, allowing time to practice some of these recommendations or reflect on them with thought or in writing.
A few years ago, a counselor recommended the book Ten Days to Self-Esteem. I worked through its content enough to conclude its operating theory was that how one thinks controls how one feels. While I discovered this approach could yield some ...more
This book was recommended to me by a fellow leadership coach and I have already incorporated much of into my own practice. In fact, I have created a 6-week one-on-one coaching engagement built around the principles that are contained within it.
There is nothing earthshakingly new in the book. But it i ...more
Overall I found this book full of useful skills to be used in the work place. Examples are given throughout the book to further understand each tactic and the explanations of each aspect of EQ are clear and concise. I would recommend this book to everyone, even though some ideas seem to be "common sense" they may be overlooked or not focused on enough of the time.
This little gem is a short read. I finished it in approximately seven hours, and that included taking exhaustive notes. This book doesn’t take 10,000 pages to say 250 pages worth, and I appreciate that. It packs short, concise definitions and concrete, actionable takeaways. Truly a breath of fresh air.
I’ve read too many books at the end of which I have no clue how to apply the things I’ve learned. This book is not one of them. ...more
I found the strategies very helpful, particularly because the books gives access to an online test that (based upon your results) tells you w ...more
