Abstract:

Responding to what he calls the culture of the Big Me, David Brooks challenges us, and himself, to rebalance the scales between our “résumé virtues” — achieving wealth, fame, and status; and our “eulogy virtues” — kindness, bravery, honesty, and faithfulness. Looking to the world's great thinkers and inpsiring leaders, he explores how, throught internal struggle and a sense of their own limitations, they built a strong inner character. With wisdom, humor, and sharp insights, Brooks provides us an opportunity to rethink our priorities--Page 4 of cover.
