The social animal : the hidden sources of love, character, and achievement by David Brooks( Book )
22 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in 7 languages and held by 2,728 libraries worldwide
Brooks effectively interweaves history, science, statistics and instinctual behavioral patterns into a fictional treatment that reiterates his belief in "the way unconscious affections and aversions shape daily life. He employs a novelistic narrative device in his intricate analysis of two upwardly mobile, likeminded individuals. The fictional couple's initial meeting spurs the author to personify the dynamics of attraction via their gender-specific "primitive passions" ("Rob was looking at cleavage, Julia was looking for signs of trustworthiness"), primal scents and cues that would anticipate a lifelong romance. "Aided by chemistry and carried along by feeling," Rob and Julia troubleshoot cohabitation blunders, carnal urges and the birth of son Harold, who, together with his wife-to-be Erica (introduced chapters later), ultimately becomes the focus of the author's behavioral paradigm. Harold's mental development proceeds from kindergarten to high school via cliques, phases and a taboo student-teacher crush. The author expands his group with Erica, an ambitious, ethnically diverse girl raised in a poor public housing project. She excels at a challenging educational platform in her youth and achieves success as a business consultant by cultivating ideas and having Harold develop them for real-world application. Their evolution as husband and wife and consummate professionals is not, however, without a fair share of stumbles

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

How to be religious in the public square by David Brooks( Sound Recording )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
David Brooks of the New York Times speaks about the divide that exists in secular culture between two sets of virtues, the "résumé virtues" of actions we do to be successful in life, and the "eulogy virtues" of concepts that transcend materialism, such as strong character traits, which we know that we should pursue in life. His concept of the "river of spiritual longing" addresses the desires of those with extensive résumé virtues who feel a lack of eulogy virtues. After discussing the concepts of falling in love, suffering, and unexpected kindness as examples of how we realize that the résumé virtues aren't everything, he begins the latter half of his talk by concentrating on how Western Christians have engaged the secular world as it pursues what is transcendent. Here, Brooks addresses "walls" such as bad listening and disregard for privacy, which repel the secular world, and "ramps" such as the obvious joy of a consistent, tranquil Christian life and the benefits of possessing a clear sense of good and evil, which can be attractive to the secular world that senses its lack of moral underpinnings. He concludes with a reminder of the core significance of love for others, versus the self-centered focus on economics held by the secular world. This viewpoint means nothing worth doing can be achieved in our lifetime, nothing makes sense in the immediate context of history, and nothing ultimately virtuous can be accomplished alone, so we must depend on forgiveness, the ultimate form of love
