Emotions such as anger or sadness  are often viewed as signs of weakness. However, according to social psychologist Gerben van Kleef , they deserve a reappraisal. Emotions are vital for bonding and for all social interactions. They provide us with a universal and powerful language that is essential for making your life a success.

Professor dr. Gerben van Kleef (UvA) just published the Dutch boek Op het gevoel. He uses examples from national and international politics and from the world of sport to show how even extreme emotions can be very useful.
