In The Second Mountain, David Brooks explores the four commitments that define a life of meaning and purpose: to a spouse, to a vocation, to a philosophy or faith, and to a community. His book is meant to help us all lead more meaningful lives, and it is also a provocative social commentary. He believes we have taken individualism to the extreme, and that the path to repair is through making deeper commitments.
