David Brooks starts out with a promising idea and, in the second half, turns his idea into a complete hodgepodge.
Mr. Brooks is an astute columnist and a keen observer of the history of social theory. He is definitely not a novelist. His characters, particularly in the later chapters, fall apart into cardboard cut-outs and soap cast members.
I almost gave up but stuck it out to the bitter end.
I would not recommend this book.
