Interesting blend of information

Dr. Goleman has succeeded in explaining the neurological underpinnings of social intelligence in almost layman's terms! His use of anecdotes to explain the specific areas of brain activation in social situations was effecive, without being too scientific. I enjoyed this book as it relates to my psychology practice, but it also appealed to the speech language pathologists in my school system. While a basic knowledge of brain mapping would enhance the learning of material, someone with little knowledge would still benefit. This is especially true for parents or individuals striving to understand basic motivations as well as the development of empathy, and other higher order thought processes. I bought the tapes instead of the book and found this to be a wonderful way to review and absorb the valuable information on my way to school. A great read (listen)!
