David Brooks weaves a vast array of new research into the lives of two fictional characters, revealing a fundamental new understanding of human nature. He outlines a new definition of success, highlighting what economists call non-cognitive skills - those hidden qualities that can't be easily measured, but which lead to happiness and fulfilment.

At Westminster they should be listening hard - The Times

NEW YORK TIMES NO.1 BESTSELLER 'Mr. Brooks is at his best as a social observer... his talent for capturing the way we live now is truly impressive. Brooks surveys a stunning amount of research and cleverly connects it to everyday experience - several passages made me think that Brooks had been glancing through my own windows.' - Wall Street Journal
