Reprint. "An Allen Lane book"--Back cover. Originally published: New York: Random House, 2015.

The No. 1 New York Times bestseller on the secret to leading a good lifeWe live in a Big Me culture: universities and businesses alike reward goal-oriented superstars and those who self-promote are most likely to thrive.

But what does this say about us?David Brooks argues that our hunger for wealth and status is eroding our ability to create meaningful inner lives.

To show us how to live better, he looks at people whose sense of humility was fundamental to their success.

What they all understood was a simple but counterintuitive truth: in order to fulfil yourself, you must learn how to forget yourself.
