A #1 New York Times Bestseller

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. Blending psychology, politics, spirituality, and confessional, Brooks provides us an opportunity to rethink our priorities and strive to build rich inner lives marked by humility and moral depth.


Customer Reviews

"Brook's poignant and at times quite humorous commentary on the importance of humility and virtue makes for a vital, uplifting read."
