This book could have been good if it wasn't so wrapped up in evolution. Although some views appear to be well thought out, the over all message is diluted with theories that are not proven. This tends to discredit the book as a whole. Understanding emotions is key to healthy living but, how does one calculate the capacity for emotions throughout the history of humankind? Why is their no mention of where emotions began, remember the amoeba? This happened right after the acid rain wash over the rock. Overall, I am disappointed in spending money for this book. It sounds like the author is stuck in the religion of the public school system which is unfortunate because some good ideas are wasted.

if you like research
I'm glad I only have the audio cassettes because this is one research intensive, BORING (audio)book. A lot of case studies are involved. My biggest turn-off was the presentation and organization. When purchasing initially, I thought I would be getting a book filled with ideas on improving emotional intelligence. While those ideas are in there, there is an overall lack of clarity and blurry presentation. I think this was more so a problem for me since this subject is rather new to me. Hence, if you are looking for a book to clearly provide recommendations on improving emotional intelligence and lack sufficient background in human/psychological development, then THIS IS NOT FOR YOU. If you are comfortable reading between the lines and have the background to interpret things for yourself, I think the variety of case studies and research would be very interesting.Was this review helpful?
