description

We live in a society that produces goal-oriented egoists. It rewards behavior that leads to success and promotes calculation and self-interest: a real me-first culture that is supposed to make us competitive.

But does it also make us valuable personalities? No, says David Brooks. Rather, we have to learn again not to conquer the world, but to commit ourselves to it. The American bestselling author is following in the footsteps of a great moral tradition and proving that we can all only win if we internalize a simple truth: If you want to realize yourself, you have to be able to forget yourself too. A gripping read for everyone who is tired of the superficial selfie culture.
