Product Description

Review

"...the potential of Emotional Contagion to exert a positive and long-lasting influence on research and theory in emotional interaction is immense...an important and useful book." Joseph N. Cappella, Contemporary Psychology

"...this book clearly explores its topic and presents a compelling case for its thesis, all in readable prose that is laced with interesting examples." Cognition and Emotion

Book Description

The communication of a mood from one person to another is identified as emotional contagion. Compelling evidence for its effects are presented from social and developmental psychology, history, cross-cultural and experimental psychology and psychopathology within this analysis of the phenomenon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Explanation of How Ideas and Emotions Spread Aug. 1 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
While reading Malcolm Bradwell's best-selling "The Tipping Point," Bradwell referred to "Emotional Contagion" as "brilliant." So I went to the source and found it just that. It offers rigorous explanations for how ideas and emotions spread, relying on fascinating experimental data from psychology and molecular biology. And the book is never dry or boring; it includes interesting historical and cultural examples as well. I think it's an important and thoroughly accessible work.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too much theory and selling me on what I already know and wanted more application March 9 2013
By Michael Twomey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I really like the excellent, "Tipping Point" by Malcolm Gladwell and so I got some of the books he sited in the back of his book. I already know and believe in "Emotional Contagion" and all I got was more theory as if they were not sure themselves and were trying to sell me on the idea that emotions affect others. It is a dry read with good information yet I wanted more application instead of more theory so I thought it was an ok book for people new to this idea, yet having practiced Hypnosis, Persuasion and Influence for many years I was hoping for more application instead of more theory. So I rate the book "just ok"
