After Emotional Intelligence, it's Social Intelligence

I've just heard that Daniel Goleman, author of two of my favourite personal development books, Emotional Intelligence and Destructive Emotions has published a new book, Social Intelligence.

. The main idea is that social intelligence - "abilities like empathy and social ease that make people sparkle interpersonally", are very important. If you've read Social Intelligence , I'd be very interested to read your comments.

As with most of his books, this is popular psychology backed up by Neuroscience . In Goleman's honour, I've added a new page to my Personal Development Through Philosophy and Psychology website about neuroscience.

By the way, Goleman now has his own blog and here is a brief introduction to social intelligence written by Goleman.
