A practical, heartfelt guide to the art of truly knowing another person in order to foster deeper connections at home, at work, and throughout our lives—from the New York Times bestselling author of The Road to Character and The Second Mountain
David Brooks is one of the nation’s leading writers and commentators. He is an op-ed columnist for The New York Times, a writer for The Atlantic, and appears regularly on PBS Newshour. He is the bestselling author of The Second Mountain, The Road to Character, The Social Animal, Bobos in Paradise, and On Paradise Drive.
If you want to know someone, what kind of conversations should you have? What parts of a person’s story should you pay attention to? In How to Know a Person: The Art of Seeing Others Deeply and Being Deeply Seen, best-selling author David Brooks sets forth a practical, heartfelt guide.
Drawing from psychology, neuroscience, philosophy, history, and education, he presents a hopeful, integrated approach to fostering deeper human connections—and a possible remedy for a society that is riven by fragmentation, hostility and misperception.
The act of seeing another person, Brooks argues, is profoundly creative: How can we look somebody in the eye and see something large in them, and in turn, see something larger in ourselves? How to Know a Person is for anyone searching for connection, and yearning to be understood.
