Downloaded this book on the advice of a classmate who said it was great. After reading the introductory section I was hoping to get to some good content, but it never came. I was really hoping to learn some interesting stuff on the latest emotional intelligence research, but honestly I felt like the whole book could have been boiled down into a 20 slide PowerPoint. I learned basically nothing from this book. For example, one of the sections said to go people watching at a coffee shop and watch how people interact. Another section advised me to listen to what others say before I start to speak...... no duh. I can only imagine that this book would be helpful to some sort of high-functioning self-aware robot that is trying to blend in better with society. Because “don’t ask for a raise when the company is doing poorly” is not news to me or most of the people I know. Save your money. Unless you are SERIOUSLY socially inept, this book isn’t going to do you any good.
