    The New York Times Op-ed columnist and author of 'Bobos in America' (2000) offers up a sly lampooning of American suburbia. Less defined as monolithic retreat zone from urban overdwelling, Brooks sees 'free-floating decentralized zones, each with its own distinct identity,' occupied by good, decent Americans still in fervent pursuit of their affordable slice of paradise to 'consume, consume, consume,' - an inescapable indicator saturating any differentiation amongst the demographics. This genial drive to the 'burbs doesn't suggest turning around any time soon to its starting point @mega-urban.bohemia. With a bibliographical essay and index. 304p.

    The New York Times columnist and bestselling author of Bobos in Paradise turns to the building blocks of human flourishing in a multilayered, profoundly illuminating work grounded in everyday life. With unequaled insight and brio, David Brooks delivers the story of how success occurs. conveying this story through the lives of one composite American couple, Harold and Erica. Distilling a vast array of information into these two 'archetypicallyl'-representative characters, he illustrates a fundamental new understanding of human nature. A scientific revolution has taken place - we have learned more about the human brain in the last thirty years than we had in the previous three thousand. The unconscious mind, it turns out, is most of the mind - not a dark recess but a creative and enchanted space, where most of the brain's work gets done. It is the natural habit of THE SOCIAL ANIMAL. Drawing on current research from numerous disciplines, Brooks takes Harold and Erica from infancy to school; from the 'odyssey years' of young adulthood to the high bars of poverty; from the nature of attachment, love, and commitment, to the nature of effective leadership. Along the way, Brooks dismantles conventionals definitions of success while gazing toward a culture based on trust and humility; a defense of progress. Notes, Index. 424p.

The book tells the story of how success happens, told through the lives of one composite American couple. Harold and Erica. Drawing on a wealth of current research from numerous disciplines, Brooks takes Harold and Erica from infancy to old age, illustrating a fundamental new understanding of human nature along the way: The unconscious mind, it turns out, is not a dark, vestigial place, but a creative one, where most of the brain’s work gets done. This is the realm where character is formed and where our most important life decisions are made – the natural habitat of the social animal. Brooks reveals the deeply social aspect of our minds and exposes the bias in modern culture that overemphasizes rationalism, individualism, and IQ. Notes, Index.

    Backing up the pioneering medical researchers and experi­ menters are the phalanxes and cohorts of practising clinicians in district general hospitals and in general practice who may have to implement and apply any breakthroughs and advances in practical and realistic terms. This they cannot, and should not, be expected to do without careful consideration and analysis. It is essential, therefore, to have regular reviews of the growing points of medicine which are constructively critical as well as being enthusiastic and which can present the issues and implications clearly and fairly to clinicians. The Practical Clinical Medicine series is designed to provide such regular reviews on selected subjects. Each volume is under the charge of an invited editor who selects his team of 4-6 experts. Each contribution is an authoritative, detailed and referenced examination of his topic, is clearly presented in an understandable manner and is practical, relevant and applic­ able to everyday clinical practice. The series is intended as a means of communication between researchers and practising clinicians. It is dedicated to gener­ alists who provide primary health care in general practice and to generalists providing secondary medical care in district vii viii Series Editors' Foreword general hospitals. Both are involved in applying good general practical clinical medicine for their patients, but can only succeed in a climate of constant review and examination.
