The 3 Dimensions of Emotions by Sam Alibrando Review
The 3 Dimensions of Emotions
Finding the Balance of Power, Heart, and Mindfulness in All Your Relationships
Author: Sam Alibrando
You can purchase this book on Amazon.
Just as there are three dimensions of the physical world (height, width and depth), there are three dimensions of the interpersonal world–power, love, and mindfulness. How well we learn to navigate them directly corresponds to how well we live our lives, how happy and fulfilled we feel.
Human reactivity is the source of most of our interpersonal problems and pain. The 3 Dimensions of Emotions introduces the concept of working the triangle, a unique practice that provides a compelling yet practical road map that can help you move from painful reactivity to productive pro activity in your relationships. And it works just as successfully for a CEO of a Fortune 500 company as it does for a parent struggling to communicate with a teenager.
The 3 Dimensions of Emotions is a new way to understand emotional intelligence and find your relational “sweet spot”―the dynamic intersection of power, love, and mindfulness. It will also help you to:
Manage difficult people in your life.
Improve your emotional intelligence as a partner, parent, and friend.
Improve your emotional intelligence as a leader at work.

I recevied a complimentary copy.
Cassandra's review- The book was personally, tough for me to get through because it is not super easy to understand but it was readable. There is so much more included that can not just be read and left. I will have to go back over each section several times in order to really benefit. I do think that with the book I will benefit but again it will just take me a little longer.
I can picture the topics droning on in a lecture or at school and just kind of getting a tired feeling of overwhelming, but you do not have to rush through the book and I would recommend that you do not.
