• How to use your most powerful human instincts to become happier, healthier, and more fulfilled

You Are Hardwired for Success!

The hardwiring? Your instincts. They are amazingly powerful. They give you the flexible intelligence you need to handle whatever comes at you. But too many of us have lost contact with our instincts. We don’t hear them. We don’t use them. And that gets us in trouble–over and over again.

Now, Dr. Hendrie Weisinger shows how to reconnect with theinstincts Mother Nature gave you. You’ll rediscover the six most indispensable human instincts that have evolved over nearly ten million years. Then, you’ll learn how to use them to thrive in every part of your life...enhancing your health and happiness, your marriage and parenting, even your work and personal creativity!

About the Author

Dr. Hendrie Weisinger is trained in clinical, counseling, and organizational psychology. His work is known internationally. A New York Times bestselling author, he is a leading authority on the application of emotional intelligence, an expert in anger management, and the originator of the highly regarded techniques of criticism training. He has consulted to and conducts workshops for numerous Fortune 500 Companies, including IBM, AT&T, Intel, Motorola, Merrill Lynch, State Farm, The Hartford, Morgan Stanley, Wachovia Securities, Wells Fargo, Medtronic, Chase Manhattan, Nabisco, General Dynamics, Bank of America, Hughes Aircraft, TRW, Control Data, Nintendo, Merck, Avon, Hyatt, Sheraton, and Estée Lauder, to name just a few.

Dr. Weisinger’s expertise has also been sought out by government agencies, including the U.S. Justice Department, IRS, EPA, Secret Service, National Security Agency, FBI, and others. In addition, Dr. Weisinger has repeatedly addressed numerous professional and educational organizations, such as the Young Presidents Organization.

Dr. Weisinger is the author of several successful books. His first, Nobody’s Perfect, reached The New York Times Bestseller List. Dr. Weisinger’s Anger Workout Book, published in 1985, is now in its 27th printing. Anger at Work, a 1995 release, was hailed by the Journal of the Library of Congress as a book that “managers at all levels will find useful. Highly recommended.” His book Emotional Intelligence at Work is considered to be the best book on the application of emotional intelligence, and The Emotionally Intelligent Financial Advisor is the first book on emotional intelligence customized to a specific industry. His book The Power of Positive Criticism has already been translated into ten languages.

Dr. Weisinger has made more than 500 appearances on major television news and information programs, including The Today Show (several times, including five consecutive days for its show on anger), Oprah, and Good Morning America, and on other television and radio programs on CNN, CNBC, and NPR.

His work has been featured in numerous newspapers and national magazines, including The New York Times Sunday Business Section, USA Today, and BusinessWeek. His article for The Wall Street Journal, “So You’re Afraid to Criticize Your Boss,” was selected by Dow Jones as one of the 60 best articles published, and his article for TV Guide, “Tutored by Television,” is an example of how parents can help their children develop their emotional intelligence.

Dr. Weisinger has taught, and currently teaches, in many leading executive education and executive MBA programs, including Wharton, UCLA, NYU, MIT, Cornell, and Wake Forest.

Genius February 11, 2009
Reviewer: from Los Angeles, CA. United States

I found this book provocative and fun to read, and very useful. The author takes evolutionary concepts and shows how to use them everyday. I thought the part on getting out of a bad relationship or dead end job was amusing and useful. Lots of great examples, this is a self help book that doesn't feel like a self help book.
