A “clever and insightful inspector of the American scene” (Wall Street Journal), David Brooks has written an op-ed column for The New York Times since 2003. A former editor and columnist at The Weekly Standard, The Washington Times, The Wall Street Journal, and The Atlantic Monthly, he frequently appears on PBS NewsHour, Meet the Press, and NPR’s All Things Considered. His books include the bestselling Bobos in Paradise, The Social Animal, and The Road to Character, a look at the mélange of traits that can lead to the path of substantive living. In The Second Mountain, Brooks posits that those who embrace lives of deeper commitment and service to others find greater fulfillment.
