A #1 New York Times bestseller, The Second Mountain is a “deeply moving, frequently eloquent, and extraordinarily incisive” (The Washington Post) exploration on what it takes to lead a meaningful life in a self-centered world.

Every so often, you meet people who radiate joy—who seem to know why they were put on this earth, and glow with a kind of inner light. This inner peace, David Brooks argues, comes not from a life of self-centered achievement, but a life of interdependence and commitment to others. In The Second Mountain, Brooks explores the four main commitments that define a life of meaning and purpose: to a spouse and family, to a vocation, to a philosophy or faith, and to a community. Our personal fulfillment, he reveals, depends on how well we choose and execute these commitments. We have taken individualism to the extreme, Brooks argues, and, in the process, we have torn the social fabric in a thousand different ways. In The Second Mountain, Brooks shows how we might repair our fractured, self-centered society, and what can happen when we put commitment-making at the center of our lives.

Publication History: Random House HC (4/19)

A NEW BOOK BY DAVID BROOKS IS FORTHCOMING.

A GUIDE FOR NAVIGATING TUMULTUOUS TIMES: Brooks offers a way forward in a world that feels increasingly dislocated and unstable. He explores how we can learn to be better toward others, experience joy, find meaning in life, and have the courage to engage and depend upon others.

A TRUSTED VOICE ON MORAL FORMATION: In his books and columns, Brooks has proven himself to be someone who can navigate this terrain without a hectoring, judgmental tone. He does not pretend to be a preacher or sage or someone without flaws; he is a warm, intelligent observer who uses stories and examples to point us toward something better.

HUGE AUTHOR PROFILE AND PLATFORM: Brooks has millions of readers from his weekly New York Times column, and is a regular presence on television. New York magazine called him “the essential columnist of our time” in a profile. The Washington Post called him “one of the most prominent public intellectuals of our time.”

David Brooks is one of the nation’s leading writers and commentators. He is an op-ed columnist for The New York Times and appears regularly on PBS NewsHour and Meet the Press. He is the bestselling author of The Road to Character, The Social Animal: The Hidden Sources of Love, Character, and Achievement; Bobos in Paradise: The New Upper Class and How They Got There; and On Paradise Drive: How We Live Now (And Always Have) in the Future Tense.

Praise for David Brooks

“David Brooks’s gift—as he might put it in his swift, engaging way—is for making obscure but potent social studies research accessible and even startling.”The New York Times Book Review

“At his best, Brooks is a normative version of Malcolm Gladwell, culling from a wide array of scientists and thinkers to weave an idea bigger than the sum of its parts.”USA Today

“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.”San Francisco Chronicle
