Backstage: Backstage with DAVID BROOKS, The Social Animal
David Brooks, the New York Times columnist and bestselling author of Bobos in Paradise, has long explored and explained the way we live. Now, in his latest book The Social Animal, Brooks turns to the building blocks of human flourishing in a multilayered, illuminating work grounded in everyday life. This is the story of how success happens. It is told through the lives of one composite American couple, Harold and Erica—how they grow, push forward, are pulled back, fail, and succeed.
