Here David Brooks challenges us, and himself, to re-balance the scales between our "résumé virtues" (geared toward achieving wealth, fame, and status) and our "eulogy virtues," including kindness, bravery, honesty, and faithfulness. In looking at the lives of outwardly focused people from Dorothy Day to Dwight Eisenhower, Brooks invites us to build rich inner lives marked by humility and moral depth.

"There is something affecting in the diligence with which Brooks seeks a cure for his self-diagnosed shallowness by plumbing the depths of others." —The New Yorker
