Emotional Intelligence was an international phenomenon, selling more than 5 million copies worldwide. Now, in Social Intelligence, Daniel Goleman explores an emerging new science with startling implications for our interpersonal world. He explains the surprising accuracy of first impressions, the basis of charisma and emotional power, the complexity of sexual attraction, and how we detect lies. He also describes the 'dark side' of social intelligence, from narcissism to Machiavellianism and psychopathy.
Once again, Daniel Goleman has written a groundbreaking synthesis of the latest findings in biology and brain science, revealing that we are 'wired to connect' and the surprisingly deep impact of our relationships on every aspect our lives.
'[Goleman] uses the emerging science of neuro-sociology to show how priming our brains for meaningful connectivity with others can make the world a better place... Fascinating' Sunday Telegraph
'Daniel Goleman understands people. He has a keen appreciation for the scientific basis of why we are the way we are - why some of us are natural flirts while others of us have a hard time getting a second date; why some of us are wired to make a great first impression at a job interview while others are useless at navigating office politics.'
