Overview

Since the release of the very successful first edition in 2001, the field of emotional intelligence has grown in sophistication and importance. Many new and talented researchers have come into the field and techniques in EI measurement have dramatically increased so that we now know much more about the distinctiveness and utility of the different EI measures. There has also been a dramatic upswing in research that looks at how to teach EI in schools, organizations, and families.

In this second edition, leaders in the field present the most up-to-date research on the assessment and use of the emotional intelligence construct. Importantly, this edition expands on the previous by providing greater coverage of emotional intelligence interventions.

As with the first edition, this second edition is both scientifically rigorous, yet highly readable and accessible to a non-specialist audience. It will therefore be of value to researchers and practitioners in many disciplines beyond social psychology, including areas of basic research, cognition and emotion, organizational selection, organizational training, education, clinical psychology, and development psychology.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The 2nd edition of Emotional Intelligence in Everyday Life is a must-read for serious scholars of emotional intelligence and those who seek to apply what we currently know about this construct. Synthesizing cutting-edge research on emotional intelligence, the chapters in this edited volume present the state-of-the-science of emotional intelligence and its application in diverse areas, in a lively, accessible manner. Emotions are an integral and central component of human functioning and affairs; this important book enlightens us as to the role of emotions and their management in everyday life." - Jennifer M. George, Mary Gibbs Jones Professor of Management and Professor of Psychology, Rice University

"What I hoped for—and found in this marvelous book—is help in separating the 'emotional intelligence' wheat from the chaff. Starting with pioneer John Mayer's 'New Field Guide to Emotional Intelligence' and extending through its chapters on emotionally intelligent dating, marriage, education, working, and investing, this book offers a state-of-the-art overview of the concept, its misuses, and its valid applications." - David G. Myers, John Dirk Werkman Professor of Psychology, Hope College

"This book is an important follow-up to the first edition. As a summary of the current state of emotional intelligence theory and research, it will be exceedingly useful to researchers. As a discussion of how emotional intelligence functions in a range of contexts—from marriage, to education, to the workplace—it will prove to be of enormous practical value." - Carol Gohm, Professor of Psychology, University of Mississippi

From The Critics
Psychologists from Australia, the US, and Canada scientifically evaluate the bold claims being made of late that emotional intelligence can make people healthy, rich, successful, loved, and happy by ending the traditional conflict between heart and head. After reviewing fundamental issues on the interaction between emotion and intellect, they report on applications of research about it to everyday life, and conclude by considering the intelligence of the whole concept. The book is distributed in the US by Taylor & Francis. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
