New York Times columnist David Brooks is the author of “Bobos in Paradise,” “On Paradise Drive” -- and his new narrative of neuroscience, "The Social Animal: The Hidden Sources of Love, Character and Achievement."
Writer and thinker David Brooks has covered business, crime and politics (as well as subbing in as the Wall Street Journal's movie critic) over a long career in journalism. He's now an Op-Ed columnist for The New York Times in a legendary run that started in September 2003.
His column looks deeply into the social currents that underpin American life. He's the author of Bobos in Paradise: The New Upper Class and How They Got There and On Paradise Drive: How We Live Now (And Always Have) in the Future Tense. His newest book, The Social Animal, examines new findings in brain science in the context of a story about two succesful people whose lives unfold in ways that neurological research is helping us understand more deeply.
