Description
Through the lives of one composite American couple, Harold and Erica, New York Times columnist David Brooks incorporates recent leaps in the understanding of the brain and the mind into a chronicle of how these two grow, push forward, are pulled back, fail, and succeed. The unconscious mind, it turns out, is most of the mind, Brooks tells us—not a dark, vestigial place but a creative realm of emotions, intuitions, biases, longings, genetic predispositions, personality traits, and social norms. It is the realm where character is formed and where our most important life decisions are made. Along the way, he demolishes conventional definitions of success while looking toward a culture based on trust and humility.

"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."—SFChronicle
