Atlanta History Center says
In today’s culture of achievement, the drive for external success and attention is so fierce there's little time to cultivate inner depth. We're taught to be assertive, to master skills, to broadcast our brand, to get likes, to get followers. We’ve become a self-preoccupied society, and the noise, the fast and shallow communications, makes it hard to hear the quiet voices that steer us beyond our immediate needs. In this elegant interweaving of politics, spirituality, psychology, and confessional, New York Times bestselling author David Brooks’ The Road to Character urges us to confront the meaning of true fulfillment.

David Brooks writes an op-ed column for The New York Times, teaches at Yale University, and appears regularly on PBS NewsHour, NPR’s All Things Considered, and NBC’s Meet the Press. He is the author of Bobos in Paradise: The New Upper Class and How They Got There, On Paradise Drive: How We Live Now (And Always Have) in the Future Tense, and The Social Animal: The Hidden Sources of Love, Character, and Achievement.
