When I say manage emotions, I only mean the really distressing, incapacitating emotions. Feeling emotions is what makes life rich. You need your passions. Quote from Daniel Goleman

No. 54: Emotional Intelligence, by Daniel Goleman

Daniel Goleman's self-help book, 'Emotional Intelligence: Why It Can Matter More Than IQ', has landed at No. 54 on our list of the Top 100 self-help books of all time.

Classic Self-Help BooksPsychologist Daniel Goleman redefined the way people think about intelligence with the release of his book “Emotional Intelligence.” A firm believer of the idea that our emotions are just as powerful high IQs, Goleman believes we can develop more empowering emotions just as we can develop stronger critical thinking skills. Too often, he says, we’re not able to control our impulses, motivate ourselves, or put our best foot forward in our relationships. Through anecdotes and reams of research, Goleman teaches us to identify our emotions, retool them, and, finally, to use them to our advantage.

Other Books by Daniel Goleman

1) 'Social Intelligence: The New Science of Human Relationships', by Daniel Goleman. In his book, 'Social Intelligence', Daniel Goleman introduces neurological research that shows humans are hard-wired to develop relationships with others. Some of us, of course, are more adept at developing these relationships than others, but that doesn't detract from their vital importance in our lives. Goleman decodes concepts that salesman have long used when working with clients: using voice and motion mirroring to establish confort. For Goleman, social intelligence and empathy must be cultivated in order to lead a happy and fulfilling life. Amazon.com: Social Intelligence: The New Science of Human Relationships.

2) 'Vital Lies, Simple Truths: The Psychology of Self-Deception', by Daniel Goleman. Too often, our minds ignore details that – in retrospect – seem achingly apparent. A souring relationship, for instance, or a clause inserted into a business detail. In 'Vital Lies, Simple Truths', Goleman argues that our minds create these "blind spots" in order to protect us from anxiety. Knowing that they're there, however, is one way to move beyond their damaging effects. Amazon.com: Vital Lies, Simple Truths: The Psychology of Self-Deception, by Daniel Goleman.

3) 'Primal Leadership: Learning to Lead with Emotional Intelligence' by Daniel Goleman. Goleman has almost singlehandedly redefined our concept of "intelligence" by molding it to include emotions, such as empathy. Using the concepts presented in Emotional Intelligence, Goleman argues that new leaders must use new tactics to motivate their employees, including using learning rather than performance as an incentive; growing relationships with staff; and experimenting with new behaviors. Amazon.com: Primal Leadership: Learning to Lead with Emotional Intelligence, Daniel Goleman.

1) 'The 48 Laws of Power', by Robert Greene. One of the most controversial books on our list of the Top 100 Greatest Self-Help Books of All Time, “The 48 Laws of Power” draws inspiration from war (Sun-Tzu) and politics (Machiavelli). A gritty, hard-hitting book that dances on the edge of propriety, the authors make grandiose claims: everyone wants more power; deceit and manipulation can be beneficial; and it helps to stifle our emotions (even love). It reads in part like a manual for future politicians, in part like a glimpse of evil, and in part like the private diary of a forgotten genius. Amazon.com: The 48 Laws of Power, by Robert Greene.
