Description: David Brooks weaves a vast array of new research into the lives of two fictional characters, revealing a fundamental new understanding of human nature. He outlines a new definition of success, highlighting what economists call non-cognitive skills - those hidden qualities that can't be easily measured, but which lead to happiness and fulfilment.
Synopsis: **AMAZON TOP 5 BESTSELLER** **INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER** REVISED AND UPDATED - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - This is the happiest story you will ever read. It's about two people who led wonderfully fulfilling, successful lives. The odd thing was, they weren't born geniuses. They had no extraordinary physical or mental gifts. Nobody would have picked them out at a young age and said they were destined for greatness. How did they do it?
