Praise for David Brooks's "The Social Animal"
"Provocative . . . seeks to do nothing less than revolutionize our notions about how we function and conduct our lives.""--The Philadelphia Inquirer"
" "
"[A] fascinating study of the unconscious mind and its impact on our lives."--"The Economist"
" "
"Compulsively readable . . . Brooks's considerable achievement comes in his ability to elevate the unseen aspects of private experience into a vigorous and challenging conversation about what we all share."--"San Francisco Chronicle"
"Brooks surveys a stunning amount of research and cleverly connects it to everyday experience. . . . As in ["Bobos in Paradise"], he shows genius in sketching archetypes and coining phrases."--"The Wall Street Journal"

"Brooks, author of "The Social Animal, " offers biographies of a cross section of individuals who struggled against their own weaknesses and limitations and developed strong moral fiber. . . .

"The road to exceptional character may be unpaved and a bit rocky, yet it is still worth the struggle.

"David Brooks's gift--as he might put it in his swift, engaging way--is for making obscure but potent social studies research accessible and even startling. . . . ["The Road to Character" is] a hyper-readable, lucid, often richly detailed human story. . . . In the age of the selfie, Brooks wishes to exhort us back to a semiclassical sense of self-restraint, self-erasure, and self-suspicion."--Pico Iyer, "The New York Times Book Review"

Schumacher for perplexed moderns."--Maria Popova, "Brain Pickings"

[The Road to Character is] a hyper-readable, lucid, often richly detailed human story. . . .

David Brooks the New York Times columnist and PBS commentator whose measured calm gives punditry a good name offers the building blocks of a meaningful life. Washingtonian

This profound and eloquent book is written with moral urgency and philosophical elegance. Andrew Solomon, author of Far from the Tree and The Noonday Demon
[Brooks] emerges as a countercultural leader. . . . The literary achievement of The Road to Character is inseparable from the virtues of its author. As the reader, you not only want to know about Frances Perkins or Saint Augustine. You also want to know what Brooks makes of Frances Perkins or Saint Augustine. The voice of the book is calm, fair and humane. The highlight of the material is the quality of the author s moral and spiritual judgments. Michael Gerson, The Washington Post
A powerful, haunting book that works its way beneath your skin. The Guardian (U.K.)

This learned and engaging book brims with pleasures. Newsday
Original and eye-opening . . . At his best, Brooks is a normative version of Malcolm Gladwell, culling from a wide array of scientists and thinkers to weave an idea bigger than the sum of its parts. USA Today
David Brooks breaks the columnist s fourth wall. . . . There is something affecting in the diligence with which Brooks seeks a cure for his self-diagnosed shallowness by plumbing the depths of others. . . . Brooks s instinct that there is wisdom to be found in literature that cannot be found in the pages of the latest social science journals is well-advised, and the possibility that his book may bring the likes of Eliot or Samuel Johnson another literary figure about whom he writes with engaging sympathy to a wider general readership is a heartening thought. Rebecca Mead, The New Yorker

If you want to be reassured that you are special, you will hate this book. But if you like thoughtful polemics, it is worth logging off Facebook to read it. The Economist
Brooks uses the powerful stories of people such as Augustine, George Eliot and Dwight Eisenhower to inspire. The Times (U.K.)
Elegant and lucid . . . a pitch-perfect clarion call, issued not with preachy hubris but from a deep place of humility, for awakening to the greatest rewards of living . . .

Descripción del producto

In The Road to Character David Brooks, best-selling author of The Social Animal and New York Times columnist, explains why selflessness leads to greater success

You could say there are two kinds of virtues in the world, the résumé virtues and the eulogy virtues. The résumé virtues are the ones you list on your CV, the skills that contribute to external success. The eulogy virtues are deeper. They're what get talked about at your funeral and they are usually the virtues that exist at the core of your being - whether you are kind, brave, honest or faithful, what kind of relationships you formed over your lifetime.

In this urgent and soul-searching book, David Brooks explores the road to character. We live in a culture that encourages us to think about how to be wealthy and successful, but which leaves many of us inarticulate about how to cultivate the deepest inner life. We know that this deeper life matters, but it becomes subsumed by the day-to-day, and the deepest parts of who we are go unexplored and unstructured. The Road to Character connects us once again to an ancient moral tradition, a tradition that asks us to confront our own weaknesses and grow in response, rather than shallowly focus on our good points. It is a focus David Brooks believes all of us - including himself - need to reconnect with now.

Telling the stories of people through history who have exemplified the different activities that contribute to a deeper existence, Brooks uses the diverse lives of individuals such as George Eliot, Dwight Eisenhower and Augustine to explore traits such as self-mastery, dignity, vocation and love. He hopes that through considering their lives it will fire the longing we all have to be better, to find the path to character.

David Brooks is a columnist for The New York Times and frequent broadcaster. His previous books include the bestsellers The Social Animal and Bobos in Paradise. His New York Times columns reach over 800,000 readers across the globe.
