The social animal : the hidden sources of love, character, and achievement by David Brooks( Book )
17 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 2,445 libraries worldwide
From the influential and hugely popular "New York Times" columnist and bestselling author of "Bobos in Paradise" comes a landmark exploration of how human beings and communities succeed
Bobos in paradise : the new upper class and how they got there by David Brooks( Book )
36 editions published between 2000 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 2,244 libraries worldwide
In this work of "comic sociology," David Brooks coins a new word, Bobo, to describe today's upper class--those who have wed the bourgeois world of capitalist enterprise to the hippie values of the bohemian counterculture. You know, those visionary software companies where people come to work wearing hiking boots and glacier glasses and seek oneness with the rhythms of nature. Their hybrid lifestyle is the atmosphere we breathe--it defines our age--and in this witty and serious look at the cultural consequences of the information age, Brooks has defined a new generation.--From publisher description
The road to character by David Brooks( Book )
10 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 1,131 libraries worldwide
"I wrote this book not sure I could follow the road to character, but I wanted at least to know what the road looks like and how other people have trodden it."--David Brooks With the wisdom, humor, curiosity, and sharp insights that have brought millions of readers to his New York Times column and his previous bestsellers, David Brooks has consistently illuminated our daily lives in surprising and original ways. In The Social Animal, he explored the neuroscience of human connection and how we can flourish together. Now, in The Road to Character, he 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, and himself, to rebalance the scales between our "r?sum? 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. Looking to some of the world's greatest thinkers and inspiring leaders, Brooks explores how, through internal struggle and a sense of their own limitations, they have built a strong inner character. Labor activist Frances Perkins understood the need to suppress parts of herself so that she could be an instrument in a larger cause. Dwight Eisenhower organized his life not around impulsive self-expression but considered self-restraint. Dorothy Day, a devout Catholic convert and champion of the poor, learned as a young woman the vocabulary of simplicity and surrender. Civil rights pioneers A. Philip Randolph and Bayard Rustin learned reticence and the logic of self-discipline, the need to distrust oneself even while waging a noble crusade. Blending psychology, politics, spirituality, and confessional, The Road to Character provides an opportunity for us to rethink our priorities, and strive to build rich inner lives marked by humility and moral depth. "Joy," David Brooks writes, "is a byproduct experienced by people who are aiming for something else. But it comes." 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 "Authoritative, impressively learned, and vast in scope." --Newsweek "An enjoyably thought-provoking adventure." --The Boston Globe From the Hardcover edition

Ellingson first describes what brought her to Montana and the University of Montana in 1967. She then describes her experience as an environmental activist (GASP: Gals Against Smog and Pollution) and women's rights activist. She was one of nineteen women elected as representatives in the Montana Constitutional Convention of 1972, as well as the youngest of all the delegates. She discusses how the Convention was organized, some of the initiatives she was involved with (in particular, the Equal Rights Amendment), the anti-partisan atmosphere, and the role of women during that event. She goes on to describe the International Women's Year Conference in Montana, which was transformed because of a high level of participation among Mormon women. Ellingson also discusses the challenges of being a woman in law school (she was one of seven women in her class of 75 students) during the early 1970's and the subsequent difficulties finding a job as a woman. Finally, she elaborates on her views on some contemporary women's issues (such as health care and child care) and her distaste for feminist jargon and labeling
