The Social Animal

David Brooks is a columnist for the New York Times and a political correspondent in the United States.  I have been watching and reading David’s work for years, but not too long ago, he wrote a book, The Social Animal, that I believe will define him when his days are done.

The Social Animal is a tremendous accomplishment of work that takes all that he has learned from years of covering political heavy-weights and attempts to explain human behavior.  This talk, which summarizes the work of the book, is both funny and poignant.  In the end, his conclusions speak to human life as one that must be understood in connection to others and with great awareness of our unconscious self.
