DAVID BROOKS

2011: The Social Animal

In his ongoing quest to find answers to the big questions – like who is successful and why – The New York Times columnist and NewsHour commentator DAVID BROOKS ventured into new territory for his best-selling book, THE SOCIAL ANIMAL.

His surprising conclusion: that emotion and intuition guide our most profound decisions – from choice of mate to choice of profession – and that far from being the rational creatures we assume ourselves to be, it is our unconscious brain that is really driving us. In ways personal, profound, and funny, Brooks will explore his adventure in this new world.
