Product Overview

In this highly anticipated new book, Dr. Marc Brackett, a pioneering emotion scientist and founding director of Yale University’s Center for Emotional Intelligence, presents a blueprint for understanding our emotions and using them wisely so that they help, rather than hinder, our success and well-being.

Brackett details a comprehensive plan to improve the lives of children and adults: The RULER approach. Backed by tens of millions dollars of research funding to investigate the roots of emotional wellbeing, RULER is a high-impact and fast-effect approach to understanding and mastering emotions. The program has already transformed the thousands of schools that have adopted it. RULER has been proven to reduce stress and burnout, improve school climate, and enhance academic achievement. This book is the culmination of Brackett’s development of RULER and his way to share the strategies and skills with readers around the world. It is tested, and it works. 

This book combines rigor, science, passion and inspiration in equal parts. Too many children and adults are suffering; they are ashamed of their feelings and emotionally unskilled, but they don’t have to be. Marc Brackett’s life mission is to reverse this course, and this book can show you how.


Editorial Reviews:

"We often create a false dichotomy between thinking and feeling. In this dichotomy, thinking is important, strong, and adaptive, but feeling is not. Marc Brackett shows us how emotions and our ability to feel, understand, and use them are key to fulfilling our potential."

-Carol Dweck, Author of Mindset: The New Psychology of Success and Professor of Psychology, Stanford University.

"Permission to Feel is a deeply insightful and compelling examination of one of the most important but ignored dimensions of the human experience. In his honest, funny, and illuminating way, Marc Brackett helps us to understand how emotions influence our health, performance, and overall well-being, and how we can leverage their power to transform our lives.”

-Vivek Murthy, MD, MBA. 19th Surgeon General of the United States

"A compelling and complete journey that delivers on its promise of giving us permission to feel. Marc Brackett shows us that emotional intelligence is not a gift but a skill: one that we can all learn, and benefit from immensely."

-Angela Duckworth, Author of Grit, CEO, Character Lab, and Professor of Psychology, University of Pennsylvania
