#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER With unequaled insight and brio, New York Times columnist David Brooks has long explored and explained the way we live. Now Brooks turns to the building blocks of human flourishing in a multilayered, profoundly illuminating work grounded in everyday life. This is the story of how success happens, told through the lives of one composite American couple, Harold and Erica. Drawing on a wealth of current research from numerous disciplines, Brooks takes Harold and Erica from infancy to old age, illustrating a fundamental new understanding of human nature along the way: The unconscious mind, it turns out, is not a dark, vestigial place, but a creative one, where most of the brain’s work gets done. This is the realm where character is formed and where our most important life decisions are made—the natural habitat of The Social Animal. Brooks reveals the deeply social aspect of our minds and exposes the bias in modern culture that overemphasizes rationalism, individualism, and IQ. He demolishes conventional definitions of success and looks toward a culture based on trust and humility. The Social Animal is a moving intellectual adventure, a story of achievement and a defense of progress. It is an essential book for our time—one that will have broad social impact and will change the way we see ourselves and the world.

Decoding Persistent Depression is the first book in a series which investigates long-term depression. This text is based on and expands previous work and explores a condition known by its various aliases: dysthymia, persistent depressive disorder, neurotic depression, dysthymic depression, and chronic depression. With playful, encouraging dialogue and examples, it comfortably exists between popular psychology and graduate-level books. While not a step-by-step self-help manual, the presented information can assist in developing understanding for symptomatic persons, as well as educators, friends, family, and healthcare providers. Clues along the way will help you eliminate distracting, contradictory, misleading, and countertherapeutic concepts. As you gather illuminating evidence, you'll be better able to comprehend and resolve an intriguing - and seemingly impenetrable - mystery, with all the usual suspects (and perhaps a few surprises): How can depression arise and why might it persist?

The most powerful force on Earth is the English language! Forty percent of men dont read books--this according to a Penguin Book Survey in New York City that has one of he highest literacy rate in the nation. I cant imagine how few men read in other parts of the country. Did you know that women are more attracted to men who read books? Women instinctively know that men who read are more educated and are better providers. You only have 60 or so productive years. After that you wont be worth much even if your brain is still intact. If you live to age 90 you have 80 times 365 days = 29,200 days so dont waste it. How many days have you wasted so far? Dont you think it is time to pick up a book and read it? I know you have been traumatized, held hostage and brainwashed for twelve to fourteen years by the government mandated compulsory school systems. America is the only place in the world that throws parents in jail if they dont enroll their children in public school.) Its understandable that after graduating high school you probably never want to read another book in your life. However if you want to earn a living for your family and have a better life you are going to have to educate yourself and reading is the only way! The most powerful force on Earth is the English Language. Learn it and be successful.
