A comprehensive guide to emotional intelligence from the bestselling author of The Consolations of Philosophy and Status Anxiety.
Emotional intelligence affects every aspect of the way we live, from romantic to professional relationships, from our inner resilience to our social success. It is the ultimate soft skill of the twenty-first century.
Drawing on his work in the hugely successful School of Life organisation, Alain de Botton presents a compendium of emotional intelligence. Using his trademark mixture of analysis, anecdote, insight and practical wisdom, he considers how we interact with each and with ourselves, and how we can do so better.
From the reigning master of popular philosophy, this is an essential look at the skill set that defines our modern lives.
