Product Description
 
What does it mean to live wisely and well in the twenty-first century? And how should we go about doing it?

These are the most important questions to ask ourselves and the ones we most often avoid dealing with. This insightful, witty and generous book reveals one simple answer to the question of a good life- emotional intelligence.

Emotional intelligence will not make you into a perfect person. It will not save you from moments of self-doubt, frustration or lost temper. Instead it will allow you to understand that these moments are completely normal, completely human, and that there is no such thing as perfect. There is only good enough - and that really is good enough.What does it mean to live wisely and well in the twenty-first century? And how should we go about doing it?
