Description

DEBUTED AT NO.1 ON THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER LISTNO.1 BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF THE SOCIAL ANIMALAre you on your first or second mountain?

Is life about you - or others? About success - or something deeper? The world tells us that we should pursue our self-interest: career wins, high status, nice things.

These are the goals of our first mountain. But at some point in our lives we might find that we're not interested in what other people tell us to want.

We want the things that are truly worth wanting. This is the second mountain. What does it mean to look beyond yourself and find a moral cause?

To forget about independence and discover dependence - to be utterly enmeshed in a web of warm relationships?

What does it mean to value intimacy, devotion, responsibility and commitment above individual freedom?

In The Second Mountain David Brooks explores the meaning and possibilities that scaling a second mountain offer us and the four commitments that most commonly move us there: family, vocation, philosophy and community.

Inspiring, personal and full of joy, this book will help you discover why you were really put on this earth.
