Some excellent material gathering on the essential truths about people and human behavior. Possibly overlooked, but one element of human behavior is that listening commuters tend to nod off to a soporific voice. I can only hope all the good stuff in the book went straight to my unconscious while waiting for the lights to turn green.
This is a book that forces you to search your soul for your meaning in life. Based on well researched scientific studies David Brooks opens your eyes to the complexities of ourselves.
The storyline was well developed and usually successful. I truly appreciated the efforts and skills of the author and narrator. I strongly recommend this read for anyone who enjoys reality with a twist of research.
I've been looking for this book for a few years and once i bought it, I decided to listen to it rather than to read it.
It turned out to be a wonderful experience for my first book.
Arthur read it very well and convincing. This was a blast, and the book, both due to the narrator and the story, are an absolute must.
I really liked it. One of the few books I lamented when it finished. I wanted to go on and on.
Very good insights and a storyline that helps understand the concepts presented. I even bought a hardcopy version to present my father!
This book covers a lot of ground on the psyches of two very different individuals. Using their lives as a way fit the reader to learn lessons about his and the world in general, this really helped put a lot into perspective.
The end is also incredibly moving and kind of hard to swallow - although you know what's coming. I recommend it to anyone wanting to learn more about human nature or themselves.
