Goleman's discussion of social intelligence ranges from the biology of neuron formation to debates over prison construction. What connects them is his examination of the interplay between people. Goleman's intense interest is always audible. He is a living example of his points about emotional contagion and how pleasurable interaction makes learning easier. The pleasure and excitement in his voice make this complex subject seem more attractive than it might, and, to be frank, the easy, friendly delivery makes some of his points sound more convincing than they might be in print. This is most often the case when he summarizes points at the far reaches of his field or tackles issues that are emotionally explosive.
