Book Review (पुस्तक परिचय)

'Social intelligence' is a book written by Daniel Goleman who is an author psychologist and science journalist. I came across this book when I was thinking about “ what  professional skills I will require to achieve my goals?”

What decides success and failure? If it’s only IQ then every individual born with high IQ should be successful in life and vice-a-versa. But this is not the case then what are the other factors?  Daniel Goleman  has given the answer as social and emotional intelligence.

Emotional intelligence includes self awareness, impulse control, persistence motivation, empathy, ect. 

Social intelligence includes social awareness, social facility, communication skills, adaptation of an individual in the society etc.

According to Daniel Goleman IQ doesn't matter as much as we think he has explained his views with examples of successful people and organizations. He has given psychological studies and neuro-anatomical basis of social intelligence and how it works in our day to day life.

He emphasis that both SQ and EQ can be acquired at any age and parents and teachers should make active efforts to develop SQ and EQ of the children from early childhood.

While growing up we form image of a doctor as stern and indifferent. More  skilled he is lesser empathetic. (e.g. Dr.  Asthana , Dr. House ) and empathy is sacrificed for efficiency and cost effectiveness.  But the chapter ‘a people prescription’  explains why only diagnostic and surgical skills are not enough and gives rational reason with scientific explanation of why the additional skills are required and how they affect our personal and professional life.

At some points the book becomes little bit monotonous with too many examples but those psychological experiments and results of research help us to understand the concept better.
