Emotional Intelligence: Why It Can Matter More Than IQ
The groundbreaking bestseller that redefines intelligence and success
Does IQ define our destiny? Daniel Goleman argues that our view of human intelligence is far too narrow, and that our emotions play major role in thought, decision making and individual success. Self-awareness, impulse control, persistence, motivation, empathy and social deftness are all qualities that mark people who excel: whose relationships flourish, who are stars in the workplace. With new insights into the brain architecture underlying emotion and rationality, Goleman shows precisely how emotional intelligence can be nurtured and strengthened in all of us.

In this book, Goleman excellently posits that emotional intelligence is as important as IQ for success, including in academic, professional, social, and interpersonal aspects of one's life. Goleman says that emotional intelligence is a skill that can be taught and cultivated, and outlines methods for incorporating emotional skills training in schools.
Love the insights of how brain circuitry reacts when humans having emotional up-and-downs in neuro-scientific aspect. What I was inspired the most - whether to have more empathy toward others or selves, or to act and react without regret, stay calm as much as you can and as long as you can is a good advice for all.
