Review

Praise for David Brooks's The Road to Character

"A hyper-readable, lucid, often richly detailed human story."--The New York Times Book Review

"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

"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."--The Washington Post

"A powerful, haunting book that works its way beneath your skin."--The Guardian (U.K.)

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
