Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Industrial-organizational psychologists Bradberry and Greaves are cofounders of TalentSmart, a management training and consulting firm in San Diego. This book, originally self-published in 2003, provides a quick outline of the major tenets of their emotional intelligence training philosophy. With the purchase of the book, readers are given a unique access code to a 28-question online "Emotional Intelligence Appraisal" to evaluate their own emotional intelligence level. The authors' engaging second-person style reads like a dynamic 0keynote presentation that offers a brief introduction to the field, an overview of the four basic skills that define emotional intelligence (self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, and relationship management), and suggestions on how to apply those skills at work and at home. This is a good motivational tool to raise reader interest in the field of emotional intelligence; however, one would need to look elsewhere for an in-depth treatment. Suitable for self-help and business collections in public libraries.-Crystal Renfro, Georgia Inst. of Technology Lib., Atlanta Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

From the Publisher
"Research shows convincingly that EQ is more important than IQ in almost every role and many times more important in leadership roles. This finding is accentuated as we move from the control philosophy of the industrial age to an empowering release philosophy of the knowledge worker age. Self-awareness, self-motivation, and regulation are foundational to empathy and social skills. This book gives abundant, practical findings and insights with emphasis on how to develop EQ."
— Dr. Stephen R. Covey, author, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People and The 8th Habit: From Effectiveness to Greatness

"All sentient beings possess awareness, but among them human beings possess great intelligence. Subject to a constant stream of positive and negative thoughts and emotions, what distinguishes us as human beings is that we are capable of positive change. The Emotional Intelligence Quickbook succinctly explains how to deal with emotions creatively and employ our intelligence in a beneficial way."
— the Dalai Lama

"If you're wondering why your career is stalled or plateaued — or if you simply want to get on the fast track to the next level — this book is a must-read...."
— Lois P. Frankel, Ph.D., New York Times bestselling author, Nice Girls Don't Get the Corner Office: 101 Unconscious Mistakes Women Make That Sabotage Their Careers

The Emotional Intelligence Quick Book: Everything You Need to Know to Put Your EQ to Work 3.8 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 25 reviews.

I've read several books on emotional intelligence and The Emotional Intelligence Quick Book is my favorite. I find the anecdotes fascinating and the research relevant to the real world (as the author's studied how emotional intelligence takes shape by gender, job performance, with family, etc.) It's also the only emotional intelligence book that comes with an online test, which is key. Each book has a code inside that allows you to measure your EQ online. Really top notch! Highly recommended.

As a self-admitted antagonist of emotional intelligence, I have always thought EI was a fad concept that would quickly pass. Because of this book, that has changed. The EI QuickBook brings a new, fresh perspective to the field...and does it swiftly! The stories are rich and effective and skillfully intertwined among theoretical and practical research on EI. If you read only one book on Emotional Intelligence...this is it.

I haven't been this excited about a book in a long time. The stories gripped me and I've taken so much from the strategies the authors present that come from their research on more than half a million people. Great book!

In the fast lane of business life today, people spend more time on computer keyboards, blackberries and conference calls than they do in face-to-face communication. We're expected to piece together broken conversations, cryptic voicemails, and abbreviated text messages to figure out how to proceed. In this increasingly complex web, emotional intelligence is more important than ever before. This book is filled with invaluable insights and information that no one can afford to ignore.

Emotional intelligence is such a crucial concept to understand--yet so many people are unaware of it. The authors do a magnificent job of explaining the incredible power of emotional intelligence and how to apply it to achieve your ultimate goals. This book helped me to maximize my potential.

Same as pony bio, but her eyes are more Fluttershy-y, with Fluttershy-ish messy hair. She wears a grey tank top, black shortsleeve sweater with a black bow on the front and a pikachu tail on the back, RD style green skirt with her CM on the right side, black short leggings, and green boots with dark blue wings. Sixth grade. Locker 888. XD

If you had to select the person you think is "most likely to succeed," how would you go about making your choice? According to authors Travis Bradberry and Jean Greaves, you'd miss the mark if you based your choice on educational achievement, intelligence or experience. The main criteria, instead, is a set of social skills known as "emotional intelligence (EQ)" that helps people interact effectively. When you're emotionally intelligent, your emotions work for - not against - you, and you are respectful and mindful of other peoples' feelings. Even the most emotionally challenged people can boost their EQs by practicing the skills this book outlines. It offers specific examples of how to bring emotional intelligence to bear in a variety of situations at home and at work. getAbstract recommends this book to those who want to use emotional intelligence effectively.

This easy to read book was very revealing of what I have experienced in the work place. It is never about smarts (IQ) and always about how we manage our thoughts to take action that is acceptable to our particular working environment (EQ).

Information is basically a re-hash which makes it slow and tough to get through. Lacks practical examples and useful tips. Too simple to be of much help.
