Book Review: Emotional Intelligence: How To Be A Master Of Your Emotions

3.0 out of 5 stars Emotional Intelligence 101 
I have been curious about the topic of “Intelligence” and “Emotional Intelligence.” The title suggests, in the book, one can find tips to master one’s Emotions and raise the EQ and develop leadership traits. 

The book begins with highlighting key aspects of human emotions and the concept of Emotional Intelligence. Of the indicators of EI highlighted, I liked the “ability to let go of excess baggage;” Most of us aspire to this ability, but very few can really “let go.”  The book concludes by highlighting “Emotional Intelligence Traits of a Brilliant Leader”

In the genera of typical “guides,” the book is heavy on concepts and theory, and rather light on examples. A personal narrative, anecdotes and examples would have helped illustrate the concepts better! 

Book Blurb: Why Is Emotional Intelligence So Important?
People who have high emotional intelligence enjoy more success in every area of life: social, emotional, physical, and financial. Research shows that EQ is one of the strongest indicators of human success and that people with strong emotional intelligence are more likely to succeed than those with high IQs or relevant experience. 
Higher emotional intelligence helps us to have stronger internal motivators, which can reduce procrastination, increase self-confidence, and improve our ability to focus on a goal. It also allows us to create better networks of support, overcome setbacks, and persevere with a more resilient outlook.
