Below are links to my complete 1996 book. I decided to put the whole book on line because I believe onte we need now in the world is more free sharing of ideas and information, and less creation and accumulation of things and money.
Please note that when I wrote this book I was basing my concept of emotional intelligence on the 1995 book by Goleman. I now believe Goleman himself doesn't really understand what EI is, although he did get many people in the world thinking about it, including me. Now I have my own definition of emotional intelligence:
|Emotional intelligence is the innate potential to feel, use, communicate, recognize, remember, describe, identify, learn from, manage, understand and explain emotions.|
One of the main differences between my idea of EI and that of most others is my emphasis on it being an innate potential we are born with. This potential can then either be develloped in healthy ways over our lives, or in unhealthy ways. As far as the term "EQ" is concerned, I don't use it much in my writing now. But for the purposes of this book, I suggest you think of what I have written as a combination of
1) a high level of development of one's innate emotional intelligence,
2) a set of learned practical emotional skills
