In this tenth-anniversary edition of Emotional Intelligence, Goldman provides a lengthy foreword that extols the wide-ranging application of his research. He notes that he has seen "El" referenced in places as diverse as a hotel shampoo bottle and the comic strip Zippy the Pinhead. Religious scholars from all faiths have written to say that the concepts resonate with spiritual teachings. A number of businesses now routinely apply El standards and competencies in hiring. Goldman saves his greatest enthusiasm for the ways in which emotional intelligence has been applied in education. He cites a meta-analysis that indicates schools that offer training in "Social Emotional Learning" experience a rise in academic scores, attendance, and have less disciplinary problems. More exciting, he recites research that suggests El training can actually change neural pathways in the brain to positively affect learning. Emotional Intelligence represents a paradigm shift in how intelligence is measured and what qualities are considered important for success in work and life. Goldman provides an excellent narration of his work. Nancy Crowder Chaplin, Libn., VCCW, Goochland, VA
