Reviews

"Provocative and fascinating . . . seeks to do nothing less than revolutionize our notions about how we function and conduct our lives."--The Philadelphia Inquirer

"[A] fascinating study of the unconscious mind and its impact on our lives . . . Brooks has done well to draw such vivid attention to the wide implications of the accumulated research on the mind and the triggers of human behaviour."--The Economist

"Multifaceted, compulsively readable . . . Brooks's considerable achievement comes in his ability to elevate the unseen aspects of private experience into a vigorous and challenging conversation about what we all share."--San Francisco Chronicle

"Brooks surveys a stunning amount of research and cleverly connects it to everyday experience. . . . As in [Bobos in Paradise] he shows genius in sketching archetypes and coining phrases."--The Wall Street Journal

"Authoritative, impressively learned, and vast in scope."--Newsweek

"An enjoyably thought-provoking adventure."--The Boston Globe

"An uncommonly brilliant blend of sociology, intellect and allegory."--Kirkus Reviews (starred revew)
