Employing a composite American couple he names Harold and Erica, New York Times columnist and PBS NewsHour commentator David Brooks follows them from infancy to old age to illustrate a fundamental new understanding of human nature. The unconscious mind, Brooks explains, 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. Brooks reveals the deeply social aspect of our minds and exposes the bias in modern culture that overemphasizes rationalism, individualism, and IQ.
