Review:

Despite our society's astounding success in securing material comfort and security, the moral crisis of modernity continues to be a thorn in our sides. Why is it that our superior educational system doesn't churn out superior moral adults? Robert Coles takes up where Daniel Goleman left off in his groundbreaking Emotional Intelligence and shows us how children learn moral behavior and how we can better teach them. Instead of theoretical essays filled with statistics and dry case studies, Coles's style of addressing the reader through the use of anecdotes and ruminations makes for a comfortable, engaging read.

About the Author:

Robert Coles is professor of psychiatry and medical humanities at the Harvard Medical School and a research psychiatrist for the Harvard University Health Services. He has written over 50 books, including the Pulitzer prize-winning five-volume Children of Crisis and the bestselling The Spiritual Life of Children. The James Agee Professor of Social Ethics at Harvard, he also teaches at Duke University during the spring semester, where he devotes much of his energy to the magazine DoubleTake, which he founded in 1995 and which is still based at Duke's Center for Documentary Studies.
