The Second Mountain: The Quest for a Moral Life by David Brooks
This book is meant to help us all lead more meaningful lives. But it’s also a provocative social commentary. We live in a society, Brooks argues, that celebrates freedom, that tells us to be true to ourselves, at the expense of surrendering to a cause, rooting ourselves in a neighborhood, binding ourselves to others by social solidarity and love. We have taken individualism to the extreme — and in the process we have torn the social fabric in a thousand different ways. The path to repair is through making deeper commitments. In the Second Mountain, Brooks shows what can happen when we put commitment making at the center of our lives.
