  1. there are a few interesting Daniel Goleman conversations which you can hear free samples of at http://www.morethansound.net . I especially recommend the newest release on that website entitled “Training Your Brain” , it’s a conversation with the Neurologist Richard Davidson at the University of Wisconsin.
