Emotional Intelligence in Everyday Lifeby John H. Beck
The notion of Emotional Intelligence (EI) - the ability to perceive, understand, and manage emotions - has become enormously popular, generating numerous books, articles, TV talk shows, and websites. Despite the extensive interest, this is the first book to provide a serious, comprehensive review of the field and the ways in which EI is important to everyday life. Written in an engaging and accessible style, the book sets out clearly what Emotional Intelligence is (and what it is not), as well as describing the basic skills and knowledge that are needed to achieve high EI. It goes on to discuss the important applications of EI to everyday life, addressing such key questions as: DT How can emotional intelligence be used to improve health, financial decisions, friendships marriages, and career success? DT How can training programs in emotional intelligence be implemented in schools and in the work force?
This book must be a winner. It is on a very hot topic which still lacks a more serious overview of theory, research, and application from multiple perspectives. The editors have done an excellent job in assembling a well-known team of authors, and their treatment of issues will be fresh and stimulating. I am sure it will be a big hit (Professor Keith Oatley, University of Toronto)
"What I hoped forand found in this marvelous bookis 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 contextsfrom marriage, to education, to the workplaceit will prove to be of enormous practical value." - Carol Gohm, Professor of Psychology, University of Mississippi
