Smart people remember your names...

Columnist David Brooks, a smart guy who tends to repeat his own jokes (there's hope for me yet) talks about his new book ‘The Social Animal’. Here he gives hope for people that put value on emotional intelligence, seeing the importance of what goes on below the surface, within our subconscious minds.

So David in triplicate:

First a brief interview on BBC Radio 4’s Today Programme (which led me to the man - although subconsciously I'm sure I've read him in the International Herald Tribune, the freebie one gets on European flights which is in fact the global edition of the New York Times)

Secondly a TED talk given on the same subject (note the repeating jokes)

And lastly, a piece also on the BBC, to which I'm about to listen, but my gut tells will probably be good.
