Críticas:

Praise for David Brooks's "The Social Animal"
"Provocative . . . seeks to do nothing less than revolutionize our notions about how we function and conduct our lives.""--The Philadelphia Inquirer"
" "
"[A] fascinating study of the unconscious mind and its impact on our lives."--"The Economist"
" "
"Compulsively readable . . . Brooks's considerable achievement comes in his ability to elevate the unseen aspects of private experience into a vigorous and challenging conversation about what we all share."--"San Francisco Chronicle"
"Brooks surveys a stunning amount of research and cleverly connects it to everyday experience. . . . As in ["Bobos in Paradise"], he shows genius in sketching archetypes and coining phrases."--"The Wall Street Journal"
" "
"Authoritative, impressively learned, and vast in scope.""--Newsweek"
" "
"An enjoyably thought-provoking adventure.""--The Boston Globe"

Praise for "The Road to Character"

"A powerful, haunting book that works its way beneath your skin."--"The Guardian "(U.K.)
"David Brooks--the "New York Times" columnist and PBS commentator whose measured calm gives punditry a good name--offers the building blocks of a meaningful life in "The Road to Character.""--"Washingtonian "("Four Books Washingtonians Should Be Reading This Month")
"Brooks, author of "The Social Animal, " offers biographies of a cross section of individuals who struggled against their own weaknesses and limitations and developed strong moral fiber. . . . [He] offers a humility code that cautions against living only for happiness and that recognizes we are ultimately saved by grace."--"Booklist"

"The road to exceptional character may be unpaved and a bit rocky, yet it is still worth the struggle. This is the basic thesis of Brooks's engrossing treatise on personal morality in today's materialistic, proud world. . . . [His] poignant and at times quite humorous commentary on the importance of humility and virtue makes for a vital, uplifting read."--"Publishers Weekly"

"David Brooks's gift--as he might put it in his swift, engaging way--is for making obscure but potent social studies research accessible and even startling. . . .

David Brooks s gift as he might put it in his swift, engaging way is for making obscure but potent social studies research accessible and even startling. . . . [The Road to Character is] a hyper-readable, lucid, often richly detailed human story. . . . In the age of the selfie, Brooks wishes to exhort us back to a semiclassical sense of self-restraint, self-erasure, and self-suspicion. Pico Iyer, The New York Times Book Review
David Brooks the New York Times columnist and PBS commentator whose measured calm gives punditry a good name offers the building blocks of a meaningful life. Washingtonian

This profound and eloquent book is written with moral urgency and philosophical elegance. Andrew Solomon, author of Far from the Tree and The Noonday Demon
[Brooks] emerges as a countercultural leader. . . . The literary achievement of The Road to Character is inseparable from the virtues of its author. As the reader, you not only want to know about Frances Perkins or Saint Augustine. You also want to know what Brooks makes of Frances Perkins or Saint Augustine. The voice of the book is calm, fair and humane. The highlight of the material is the quality of the author s moral and spiritual judgments. Michael Gerson, The Washington Post
A powerful, haunting book that works its way beneath your skin. The Guardian (U.K.)

This learned and engaging book brims with pleasures. Newsday
Original and eye-opening . . . At his best, Brooks is a normative version of Malcolm Gladwell, culling from a wide array of scientists and thinkers to weave an idea bigger than the sum of its parts. USA Today
David Brooks breaks the columnist s fourth wall. . . . There is something affecting in the diligence with which Brooks seeks a cure for his self-diagnosed shallowness by plumbing the depths of others. . . . Brooks s instinct that there is wisdom to be found in literature that cannot be found in the pages of the latest social science journals is well-advised, and the possibility that his book may bring the likes of Eliot or Samuel Johnson another literary figure about whom he writes with engaging sympathy to a wider general readership is a heartening thought. Rebecca Mead, The New Yorker

If you want to be reassured that you are special, you will hate this book. But if you like thoughtful polemics, it is worth logging off Facebook to read it. The Economist
Brooks uses the powerful stories of people such as Augustine, George Eliot and Dwight Eisenhower to inspire. The Times (U.K.)
Elegant and lucid . . . a pitch-perfect clarion call, issued not with preachy hubris but from a deep place of humility, for awakening to the greatest rewards of living . . .

Reseña del editor:

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY THE ECONOMIST I wrote this book not sure I could follow the road to character, but I wanted at least to know what the road looks like and how other people have trodden it. David Brooks
With the wisdom, humor, curiosity, and sharp insights that have brought millions of readers to his New York Times column and his previous bestsellers, David Brooks has consistently illuminated our daily lives in surprising and original ways. In The Social Animal, he explored the neuroscience of human connection and how we can flourish together. Now, in The Road to Character, he focuses on the deeper values that should inform our lives. Responding to what he calls the culture of the Big Me, which emphasizes external success, Brooks challenges us, and himself, to rebalance the scales between our resume virtues achieving wealth, fame, and status and our eulogy virtues, those that exist at the core of our being: kindness, bravery, honesty, or faithfulness, focusing on what kind of relationships we have formed.
Looking to some of the world s greatest thinkers and inspiring leaders, Brooks explores how, through internal struggle and a sense of their own limitations, they have built a strong inner character. Labor activist Frances Perkins understood the need to suppress parts of herself so that she could be an instrument in a larger cause. Dwight Eisenhower organized his life not around impulsive self-expression but considered self-restraint. Dorothy Day, a devout Catholic convert and champion of the poor, learned as a young woman the vocabulary of simplicity and surrender. Civil rights pioneers A. Philip Randolph and Bayard Rustin learned reticence and the logic of self-discipline, the need to distrust oneself even while waging a noble crusade.
Blending psychology, politics, spirituality, and confessional, The Road to Character provides an opportunity for us to rethink our priorities, and strive to build rich inner lives marked by humility and moral depth.
Joy, David Brooks writes, is a byproduct experienced by people who are aiming for something else. But it comes.
