By David Brooks
#5205 With the wisdom, humor, curiosity, and sharp insights that have brought millions of readers to his New York Times column, David Brooks now focuses on the deeper values that should inform our lives.
Responding to what he calls the culture of the Big Me, which emphasizes external success, Brooks challenges us to rebalance the scales between our resume virtues achieving wealth, fame, and status and our eulogy virtues, those that exist at the core of our being: kindness, bravery, honesty, or faithfulness, focusing on what kind of relationships we have formed.
Blending psychology, politics, spirituality, and confessional, this book provides an opportunity for us to rethink our priorities, and strive to build rich inner lives marked by humility and moral depth.
