A great, simple and innovative guide to engaging with Emotional Intelligence. Meng, an engineer at Google, brings a practical and logical framework to content that is complex and esoteric for many. He manages to avoid psychobabble and provides some good scientific support along with heaps of practical skills that you can get started with right away. There is little new content but it is energising and easy to apply in your leadership, teams and family.
Meng also does a good job of creating a case for mindfulness and the elements of calm, clarity and attention that are the foundations of a strong mind. The instruction is good and the expectations of the reader are reasonable. Great job Meng.
