What Howard Schultz says

This book was given to me as a gift by Major General Kenneth Dahl, one of the finest military minds I know. A timeless, classic book of inspirational leadership that should be required reading for all Americans.

What Howard Schultz says

An unlikely story set in the Pacific Northwest of a group of gritty, up-by-the-bootstraps young men pitted against the most elite and privileged athletes the world could throw at them. The fact that we already know they won the gold doesn’t make the story any less riveting or their actions any less heroic.

    The story of the 1936 U.S. Olympic rowing team competing in the Berlin Olympics. One should never underestimate what the determined amateur can do when armed with a professional attitude.

The Road to Character

by
About
The Book
With the wisdom, humor, curiosity, and sharp insights that have brought millions of readers to his NYT column and his previous bestsellers, David Brooks has consistently illuminated our daily lives in surprising and original ways. In his latest book, he focuses on the deeper values that should inform our lives. Responding to what he calls the culture of the Big Me, which emphasizes external success, Brooks challenges us, and himself, to rebalance the scales between our “résumé virtues”—achieving wealth, fame, and status—and our “eulogy virtues,” those that exist at the core of our being: kindness, bravery, honesty, or faithfulness, focusing on what kind of relationships we have formed. Looking to some of the world’s greatest thinkers and inspiring leaders, Brooks explores how, through internal struggle and a sense of their own limitations, they have built a strong inner character.

Through this book, David Brooks has encouraged me and thousands of others to reflect further and more deeply on our priorities and aspirations, through the lens of humility and moral depth. David’s insights, wit, and deep curiosity are all applied to a fantastic journey of learning from the lives of some of the greatest leaders and thinkers of our time.

    I admire each of the remarkable individuals that David Brooks examines in “The Road to Character,” and their journeys provide valuable lessons for us all. But what ultimately made me love the book was the way Mr. Brooks examines himself. By taking an unflinching look at his own life and work, he offers a rare present-day model for how to navigate a world that constantly encourages us to focus on résumé, values and reward. Beyond provoking valuable self-reflection and introspection, the book sparked a wonderful discussion with my two daughters about why building inner character is just as important as building a career. In fact, the two go hand in hand—the moral compass of our lives must also be the moral compass of our livelihoods.
