Bobos in paradise : the new upper class and how they got there by David Brooks( Book )

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 social animal [a story of love, character, and achievement] by David Brooks( file )
6 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 398 libraries worldwide
"This is the story of how success happens. It is told through the lives of one composite American couple, Harold and Erica-how they grow, push forward, are pulled back, fail, and succeed. Distilling a vast array of information into these two vividly realized characters, Brooks illustrates a fundamental new understanding of human nature. A scientific revolution has occurred-we have learned more about the human brain in the last thirty years than we had in the previous three thousand. The unconscious mind, it turns out, is most of the mind-not a dark, vestigial place but a creative and enchanted one, where most of the brain's work gets done. This is the realm of emotions, intuitions, biases, longings, genetic predispositions, personality traits, and social norms: the realm where character is formed and where our most important life decisions are made."--from publisher's description

The Social Animal: The Hidden Sources of Love by David Brooks( Book )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 20 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
