They consider such aspects as its importance, emotionally intelligent parenting, steps in developing a community-based teacher training program designed to educate children to be emotionally intelligent, and the most popular measures of assessing emotional intelligence in adults."

"Bar-On, Maree, and Elias have put together a book that reflects the rapidly growing global interest in scientifically based applications of emotional intelligence (EI) in education. Although EI has been defined in a variety of ways, the editors focus on five competencies: (1) recognizing, understanding, and expressing feelings; (2) understanding the feelings of others and relating cooperatively; (3) managing and controlling emotions; (4) managing emotions generated by change and solving personal and interpersonal problems; (5) generating positive affect and being self-motivated. The thrust of EI work is to recognize that the IQ has limited value in predicting success and that, to a significant degree, EI can fill the gap….[t]his title will be useful those interested in educational, service, and organizational activities, including the general public. Includes chapter-end references. Recommended. All readers; all levels."
"The text has been constructed expertly by a triad of distinguished editors….This excellently written book plainly reveals the salient need for further studies structured well to fill existing gaps in research knowledge in the deeply fissured field of emotional intelligence….The respective contributors to this superbly crafted text are to be commended for deftly painting a revealing picture of emotional intelligence. Their skilled efforts may be a springboard to futher study of EI.

Additionally, persons attached professionally to the field of education, including teachers, special education teachers, school administrators, and school principals, will very likely be quite enlightened by a careful perusal of the books illuminating contents."
