9781427206855: Ecological Intelligence

Ecological Intelligence recasts the uproar over global warming and the assault of man-made toxins into our bodies in terms of the collective self-deception which both created this crisis and holds a key to its solution. Ecological Intelligence argues that "green" labels and recycling programs may do more harm than good by feeding a vital lie, lulling us into the illusion that we are doing enough already while ignoring the adverse impact of the far vaster proportion of what we buy and do. The book brings a psychologist's insights into the world of commerce, arguing for radical transparency -- tracking every substantial impact over the life cycle of an item, from manufacture to daily use, to disposal -- and surfacing those impacts at the point of purchase. The movement toward such transparency augurs a day when the free market will operate in public interest.

About the Author:

Daniel Goleman, Ph.D., covered behavioral and brain sciences for The New York Times for twelve years and is codirector of the Consortium for Research on Emotional Intelligence in Organizations at Rutgers University. He has taught at Harvard, his alma mater, and as a consultant addresses groups and businesses around the world. He is also the author of Emotional Intelligence,Working with Emotional Intelligence, Primal Leadership, and co-author of Destructive Emotions.

From AudioFile:

Daniel Goleman's spirited manifesto in favor of "radical transparency" explores the possibility of providing consumers with complete information on the ecological and social impact of the products they buy through their entire life cycle--from the extraction of raw materials to the disposal of waste. Goleman asserts that informing consumers would radically alter manufactures' approaches to environmental and social problems. Goleman narrates his own work in a clear, lively, and well-paced (if didactic) tenor. The book's concepts are simple and clearly accessible, even to a casual listener. His examples of both product impacts and information-delivery systems are numerous and interesting. F.C. AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
