Emotional Intelligence was an international phenomenon, appearing on theNew York Times bestseller list for over a year, and selling more than five million copies worldwide. Now, once again, Daniel Goleman presents groundbreaking work that synthesizes the latest findings in biology and brain science, revealing that we are "wired to connect," and showing the surprisingly deep impact of our relationships on every aspect our lives.
In richly anecdotal detail, Goleman brings to life the entirely new field of social neuroscience that has emerged in the decade since the publication ofEmotional Intelligence. He shows that, far more than we are consciously aware, our daily encounters with parents, spouses, bosses, and even strangers shape our brains and affect cells throughout our bodies. Our relationships create a setpoint for our daily moods and influence our immune response; they are crucial to achievement in students and workers; they determine whether or not some genes are expressed, for good or ill.
Above all, Goleman explores the foundations of rapport, love, cooperation, and altruism, with major implications for the wellbeing of our families, communities, and workplaces. Whether you listen to this as a lover or parent, medical professional or businessperson, teacher or community leader, you will never see your relationships in the same way again.
Daniel Goleman, Ph.D., covered behavioral and brain sciences forThe New York Times for twelve years and is codirector of the Consortium for Research on Emotional Intelligence in Organizations at Rutgers University. He has taught at Harvard, his alma mater, and addresses groups and businesses around the world. He is also the author ofEmotional Intelligence,Working withEmotional Intelligence, andThe Meditative Mind, and is co-author ofPrimal Leadership andDestructive Emotions.

“This book is the author's follow-up to his groundbreakingEmotional Intelligence. Here he focuses on using emotional intelligence at work; he explains why people who focus on skills and information are at a disadvantage compared to workers who have mastered their own emotions and understand the emotions of their co-workers.” —AudioFile on Working With Emotional Intelligence
