Emotional Intelligence by Daniel Goleman

Often, at the base of personal, interpersonal, and societal violence, failure, and despair  – there, like a snake coiled in a dark corner of the basement – lurk emotions unrecognized and uncontrolled.

This classic, groundbreaking book by Harvard professor Daniel Goleman sheds light on that “snake” and offers scientifically based insights on exposing its presence, power and strangleholds on the lives of individuals and nations.

More importantly, it shows how to bring the “snake” under control to make way for the possibilities of hope, peace, success, and happiness.

In print for nearly a quarter of a century, this book ushered in a new era of research into the significance of emotions, their relationship to the role of IQ and the power that knowledge of that relationship has in impacting individuals and the world.
