Emotions are a vital component of being human. They are tools to let you know what’s happening between you & the world around you. Ignoring these tools is as perilous as a ship captain turning off the radar while navigating a narrow reef-laden channel in thick fog.
"In the last decade or so, science has discovered a tremendous amount about the role emotions play in our lives. Researchers have found that even more than IQ, your emotional awareness and abilities to handle feelings will determine your success and happiness in all walks of life, including family relationships."Building Emotional Intelligence will help you not only understand other people better, it will help you understand yourself better.
--John Gottman, Ph.D
