Karl Albrecht’s bestselling book Social Intelligence showed us how dealing with people and social situations can determine success both at work and in life. Now, in this groundbreaking book Practical Intelligence, Albrecht takes the next step and explains how practical intelligence (PI) qualifies as one of the key life skills and offers a conceptual structure for defining and describing common sense.

Throughout Practical Intelligence, Albrecht explains that people with practical intelligence can employ language skills, make better decisions, think in terms of options and possibilities, embrace ambiguity and complexity, articulate problems clearly and work through to solutions, have original ideas, and influence the ideas of others. Albrecht shows that everyone’s PI skills can be improved with proper education and training and challenges all of us—from parents and teachers to executives and managers—to upgrade our own skills and help others develop their own PI abilities.

Praise for Practical Intelligence

"Karl Albrecht has done an excellent job of integrating the many dimensions of practical intelligence into a coherent, sensible framework. This is an eminently practical book."—Daniel Pink, author, A Whole New Mind

"What could be more important than helping people, at every age and stage of life, learn to use their minds more successfully? Karl Albrecht has given us a terrific resource for doing just that. His four 'software upgrades' and four 'mega-skills' provide a wonderfully comprehensive framework for practical intelligence."—Dr. Sidney J. Parnes, co-developer with Alex Osborn of the Creative Education Foundation

"This brilliant, ebullient, and brainy book brings us new means to gray matter. At turns high-minded and hilarious, Practical Intelligence will remain the source book for many years of the best thinking about thinking well."
—Jean Houston, author, The Possible Human
