The Social Animal" by David Brooks
Brooks is, of course, a columnist for "The New York Times." But don't pick up the book expecting the usual political analysis. It's not that at all.
This is a profound meditation on what motivates human beings. What makes them win. What makes them succeed. What makes them love. What makes them relate to each other. It's a lot of neuroscience. Very well presented, wonderfully written.
I follow your program almost 75% of the time. Needless to say GPS is all about "Telling me something what I did not know". It brings fresh news and thoughts and you always leave audience with some food for thought and that includes suggesting book/s of the week. I am getting overwhelmed. Wondering how am I going to catch up with this long list of books.
Keep going Fareed. I am really proud of you and the wisdom you share.
Props from a fan Fareed. I've graduated from enjoying your interviews to watching your show, and now to reading your recommended books. Just finished "Bounce"...another gem I wouldn't have bought without your comments.
