A Must for MH Pros

I am a mental health counselor and I would recommend this book for the library of all practitioners in the field. I regard Goleman's work as foundational.

An Essential Book

This book is an essential read for anyone interested in human relationships.
In it Daniel Goleman tells the reader about the skills and qualities we all need to get along with other people. His work is backed up with solid research and good science.
The book is written in an engaging style .
Hopefully Mr. Goleman will present us with a new edition based on new research .
