Review
------

“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)
