Everyone knows that high IQ is no guarantee of success, happiness, or virtue, but until Emotional Intelligence, we could only guess why. Daniel Goleman’s brilliant report from the frontiers of psychology and neuroscience offers startling new insight into our “two minds”–the rational and the emotional–and how they together shape our destiny.
Through vivid examples, Goleman delineates the five crucial skills of emotional intelligence, and shows how they determine our success in relationships, work, and even our physical well-being. What emerges is an entirely new way to talk about being smart.
The best news is that “emotional literacy” is not fixed early in life. Every parent, every teacher, every business leader, and everyone interested in a more civil society, has a stake in this compelling vision of human possibility.₵60.00Quick View

New York Times Best Seller
Named a Best Book of 2017 by Barnes & Noble and Amazon
From Facebook’s COO and Wharton’s top-rated professor, the #1 New York Times best-selling authors of Lean In and Originals: a powerful, inspiring, and practical book about building resilience and moving forward after life’s inevitable setbacks.
After the sudden death of her husband, Sheryl Sandberg felt certain that she and her children would never feel pure joy again. “I was in ‘the void,’” she writes, “a vast emptiness that fills your heart and lungs and restricts your ability to think or even breathe.” Her friend Adam Grant, a psychologist at Wharton, told her there are concrete steps people can take to recover and rebound from life-shattering experiences. We are not born with a fixed amount of resilience. It is a muscle that everyone can build.
Option B combines Sheryl’s personal insights with Adam’s eye-opening research on finding strength in the face of adversity. Beginning with the gut-wrenching moment when she finds her husband, Dave Goldberg, collapsed on a gym floor, Sheryl opens up her heart—and her journal—to describe the acute grief and isolation she felt in the wake of his death. But Option B goes beyond Sheryl’s loss to explore how a broad range of people have overcome hardships including illness, job loss, sexual assault, natural disasters, and the violence of war. Their stories reveal the capacity of the human spirit to persevere…and to rediscover joy.
Resilience comes from deep within us and from support outside us. Even after the most devastating events, it is possible to grow by finding deeper meaning and gaining greater appreciation in our lives. Option B illuminates how to help others in crisis, develop compassion for ourselves, raise strong children, and create resilient families, communities, and workplaces. Many of these lessons can be applied to everyday struggles, allowing us to brave whatever lies ahead. Two weeks after losing her husband, Sheryl was preparing for a father-child activity. “I want Dave,” she cried. Her friend replied, “Option A is not available,” and then promised to help her make the most of Option B.
We all live some form of Option B. This book will help us all make the most of it.₵60.00Quick View
A good driver pays attention to the condition of the road; is aware of potential obstacles and opportunities; and with deliberate care and attention, navigates his way safely home. The journey to retirement is no different, except YOU are your own driver.
There’s nothing worse than reaching retirement, having worked hard, feeling old and tired, with nothing to show for it. For most people, retirement conjures up images of rest, relaxation and general enjoyment of life after years of labour. For many, however, when the time comes, the reality is rather different.
A successful and enjoyable retirement demands three pre-requisites: robust personal health, good financial planning and supportive relationships. After all, one does not retire into a vacuum, but into a social context. The quality of your social relationships is, therefore, crucial. But even more critical is the quality and state of your financial and personal wellbeing as you transition into this phase in your life. Retire Well will give you a clear, evidence-based approach towards preparing for retirement.
The book is aimed at those who are starting to think about retirement and presents relevant facts, analysis, opinions, and stories from the experience of others. You will be able to reflect on where you are now on your retirement journey, where you’d like to be when you retire, and the book will give you tools and encouragement to take the necessary purposeful action.₵85.00Quick View
