Product description


Potentially life-changing lessons can be found in this relevant and thought-provoking book. (Booklist)

Brooks's best book yet ... Powerful ... His stirring new book is a self-help guide to escaping the prison of self. (Oliver Burkeman The Observer, 'Book of the Day')

Enormously comforting and galvanising ... a better way to live

Across more than 300 pages of heartfelt prose, Brooks reworks [the meaning of life] into a neat story . . . Brooks' willingness to be "a little vulnerable" results in a refreshing honest confession . . . There's no top-of-the-mountain moment . . . just a friendly, gentle nudging toward the conclusion that real joy lies in moral commitment. (The Irish Times)

The book overall, candid about the reality of stress and failure in the author's life, has earned the right to put forward with equal candour the experience of finding, or being found by, faith. (Rowan Williams The New Statesman)

Book Description

When did we stop connecting with other people? David Brooks argues that we can only solve our crisis of meaning at an emotional and moral level.
