About this book
From the author of the bestselling "Emotional Intelligence", this brings readers a radically different way of thinking about themselves and their world. In it, Goleman reveals that we are 'wired to connect' and that our encounters with others shape our brains, cells and genes. 'There is a great deal in Goleman's book to interest and inform the general reader' "New Scientist"
Presents a synthesis of the findings in biology and brain science, revealing a fundamental discovery: we are designed for sociability, constantly engaged in a 'neural ballet' that connects us brain-to-brain with those around us. This work explains the surprising accuracy of first impressions, the basis of charisma and emotional power, and more.
