Goleman can waffle like a woman: a series of thoughts that can be clearly written in four or five paragraphs he is able to stretch into eight or nine pages. Quite repetitive; explains - if that is the right word - an abstract term with a series of other synonymous abstract terms (he must have a well-thumbed thesaurus).
