Building on nearly eighty years of scientific work, the Handbook of Emotional Intelligence is the first definitive resource that brings together a stellar panel of academics, researchers, and practitioners in the field. Sweeping in scope, the text presents information on the most important conceptual models, reviews and evaluates the most valid and reliable methods for assessing emotional intelligence, and offers specific guidelines for applying the principles of Emotional Intelligence in a variety of settings.
"The Handbook should prove invaluable for those who seek to pursue the research that will carry this field to its next level of depth and clarity. Those who want to pursue such research have a solid sourcebook, one that offers access to the leading thought and tools in the field."
from the foreword by Daniel Goleman, author of Emotional Intelligence
"The Handbook of Emotional Intelligence will fast become a must–read for scholars and practitioners alike. The range of coverage from theory to assessment to intervention brings the reader quickly up to speed with the latest developments in understanding how social, emotional, and practical intelligence help us all navigate our social worlds."
Nancy Cantor, professor of psychology, University of Michigan, and coauthor of Personality and Social Intelligence
"The Handbook of Emotional Intelligence is a landmark contribution not only from a theoretical/empirical point of view, but for its practical implications. Emotional Intelligence is the centerpiece of leadership and organizational success, and this collection of exceptional articles is an enormously useful guide that both illuminates and advances our thinking on this topic."
Warren Bennis, distinguished professor of business administration, University of Southern California, and author of On Becoming a Leader
