The Emotional Intelligence Quick Book
A Review - Is it Worthwhile?


The Emotional Intelligence Quick Book by Travis Bradberry and Jean Greaves is a popular book when pursuing more information on the emotional intelligence theory.  Was the book worthwhile?  Well...

Let's talk about it in a few different ways to answer this question.

What is Emotional Intelligence?

This book gave a pretty good example of answering the question, “What is Emotional Intelligence?”

It did this by telling a story of how emotional intelligence was discovered through a tragic accident...

Well, tragic in the sense that it was an accident, but not-so-tragic because the person in the story did not die...

Rather, the person went on to become very well known for proving part of the emotional intelligence theory which confirms that without the use of part of the brain, we do have have access to any emotional intelligence skills.

Emotional Intelligence Theory

This emotional intelligence book also gave a pretty good description of how the brain physically functions when using emotional intelligence skills or learning how to improve emotional intelligence.

In fact, many of the articles on emotional intelligence that I found “out there” when doing my research for my emotional intelligence articles left out the physical component of how the brain works in relation to enhancing emotional intelligence.

Since I'm a person who likes to know the “how it actually works,” I found this part of the book particularly helpful because it not only gave me hope that I'm in control of enhancing emotional intelligence....

But, also told me that it's completely possible to make changes within myself that will help me improve emotional intelligence more and more as I get better and better at doing the behavioral part of the emotional intelligence theory.

Emotional Intelligence Book

As far as an emotional intelligence book goes, it was pretty easy to understand and put things in “layman's” terms.

As far as an interesting book to read, I found it interesting in that it gave me facts and information that supported the emotional intelligence theory.

Half way through the book, however, I set it aside and found myself not very interested in continuing it.  Why?

Because I found the examples of emotional intelligence a bit too boring to hold my attention – but remember, I'm a fact and figures, research oriented type of gal.  So, I'm not really interested in a lot of stories about the emotional intelligence theory in action.

If you are a “fiction type of reader” that would like an emotional intelligence book which gives information along with a lot of fun stories about it, you'll love this book because of all of the examples of how emotional intelligence skills were used – or not used – by various people.

The Emotional Intelligence Quickbook

Even though I set the book aside at the half way point, I did endeavor to finish the book and it provided me with a lot of very good information.

Was this the only emotional intelligence book worth reading?  No, the book, Emotional Intelligence by Daniel Goleman is also a very good emotional intelligence book.

Was the quick book worthwhile?  Yes, it was an easy read with “to the point” information derived from years of study and research...

Was the name of the book consistently the same everywhere?  No, sometimes the words Quick Book have shown up as Quickbook.  But the actual book itself is called, The Emotional Intelligence Quick Book, separating quick and book.

Whether you choose to read this book or any other EQ book, you're bound to pick up a few tidbits of information, including that hypnosis is a great way to improve emotional intelligence.
