What Ariana Huffington says

Adam Grant uses surprising studies and riveting stories to brilliantly show us how to champion new ideas, bust persistent myths that hold us back and change not only our lives, but our world. It’s a fascinating, eye-opening read that will help you not just recognise your own unique gifts, but find the strength to challenge conventional wisdom to bring them to life.

What Malcolm Gladwell says

Reading Originals made me feel like I was seated across from Adam Grant at a dinner party, as one of my favorite thinkers thrilled me with his insights and his wonderfully new take on the world.

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.

What Indra Nooyi says

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.

What Howard Schultz says

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.

This book had a profound effect on my career and life. I think about its lessons almost every day — the importance of authentic communication, impeccable commitments, being a player not a victim, and taking responsibility. I have given this book to so many team members at work, and I’ve seen it inspire people overnight to be more aware of their actions and impact on others.
