    This is the story of how success happens. It is told through the lives of one composite American couple, Harold and Erica - how they grow, push forward, are pulled back, fail, and succeed. Distilling a vast array of information into these two vividly realized characters, Brooks illustrates a fundamental new understanding of human nature.

    Overall

    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.
