Summary
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” &#x; achieving wealth, fame, and status; and our “eulogy virtues” &#x; 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
Summary
"#1 New York Times bestselling author David Brooks, a controversial and eye-opening look at how our culture has lost sight of the value of humility - defined as the opposite of self-preoccupation - and why only an engaged inner life can yield true meaning and fulfillment"--
