Book Review :: The Power of Social Intelligence by Tony Buzan

Posted on Updated on

Hello All. Hope you are fine by grace of Allah Almighty.

Here is the first review of a book from my shelf. There were three books on my desk and was thinking which one should select for first review. There were 2 novels and third one was  “The Power of Social Intelligence. by Tony Buzan” and then finally i decided to select this. Again, i’m not a regular writer, so for any grammatical and other mistakes, my advance sorry is here. I love to write, so i’m writing …

Why this book

“Men is a social animal” we are listening and reading this line from our childhood. People explain this as we live in community, we live in groups, so its naturally that we have to interact with people around us.  Either we wish or not, we have to communicate or in other words we have to be social. Ok, thats fine, i do agree that we need to communicate, interact and have to be social to live in our society, group or community. But how?? How should we interact with each other among a group? How to make sure an effective communication (either verbally or via your gestures) between you and your audience?  The phrase “Man is social animal” tells us who we are, what should we do as part of a community, but How To Do!!! it doesn’t tell. For this, Tony Buzan give us answer of all such quries in his book “The Power of Social Intelligence”
