Annotation:
Literary experts have identified three major conflicts which may be applied to every narrative story that has ever been spoken or written--person vs. him/herself, person vs. person, and person vs. nature. Dr. Daniel Goleman has now written a non-fiction equivalent for all three. In his landmark book EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE, Goleman made us re-think our notions of individual identity and intellect, and showed how we can achieve inner fulfillment. His follow-up, SOCIAL INTELLIGENCE, provided a new way of enriching our interactions with other people. Now, with ECOLOGICAL INTELLIGENCE, Goleman completes the triptych by providing a compelling outline of how we can all do our individual part to collectively protect our planet. He reveals a few of the numerous hidden ways that our habits impact the earth negatively, despite our best efforts. For example, many of the herbal supplements that people gobble to improve their health are actually tainted with preservatives, and those re-usable, cotton grocery bags that have become popular likely have a larger ecological footprint than the plastic ones everyone scorns. Now, perhaps Goleman can tackle the emerging "person vs. machine" conflict by writing ROBOTIC INTELLIGENCE, which will help us to interact with our android associates as they begin to assume a more prominent role in our lives.
