*How to Know a Person*

The author is David Brooks, and the subtitle is The Art of Seeing Others Deeply and Being Deeply Seen.  I think of it as a book on how to appreciate others, even if you do not necessarily deeply know them, which is slightly different from David’s subtitle.  (Am I too skeptically Freudian when it comes to “knowing people”?)  An excellent book, I read it straight through, and I view it as a milestone in David’s career.  Does that mean I appreciate him?  Know him even?  Maybe just the former!

Due out October 24, you can pre-order here.

As I wrote to a friend: “If those who needed it would heed it, it would be one of the most useful books.”  The rest is up to you.
