What I Learned About Ego, Opinion, Art & Commerce (often referred to simply as EOAC) is a compilation album by American rock band Goo Goo Dolls. It was released in 2001 by Warner Bros. Records and is a compilation of Goo Goo Dolls songs released from 1987-2000.

Tracks 1-4 are from the album Dizzy Up the Girl. Tracks 5-9 are from the album A Boy Named Goo. Tracks 10-16 are from the album Superstar Car Wash. Tracks 17-20 are from the album Hold Me Up. Track 21 is from the album Jed. Track 22 is from the album Goo Goo Dolls. Multiple songs, such as "Acoustic #3" and "All Eyes On Me", have an extended musical interlude. "Two Days In February" was re-recorded by Rzeznik, a studio version of the original, which was recorded outside. "Naked" is an extended version of the original, which was on A Boy Named Goo, and is similar to the version released as a single. All songs are remixed and remastered.

The album is not a typical best-of compilation, as "Iris," "Name," and virtually all of the Goo Goo Dolls' other mainstream hits are absent. Instead, the selection is a combination of non-singles and songs that were released as singles prior to the Goo Goo Dolls' 1995 breakout, as well as fan favorites.
