Emotional Intelligence by Daniel Goleman.
I’m often suspicious of american best-sellers, especially in the domain of psychology. Don’t let yourself be fooled like I almost was: this book is far from shallow.
It explains how and why skills in the emotional realm play a far more important role in our lives than pure intellect (be it in school, at work, with family, or dealing with illness) – even though the development of these skills is not coached in any way, and left to chance.
I understood quite a few things about myself while reading this book – and I’m not thick when it comes to introspection and psychological analysis : )
