The Road to Character

The Road to CharacterThe Road to Character by David Brooks
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Instead of watching the presidential address last night, I chose to finish reading this book on the formation of moral character.

When I first ordered this book I was curious whether it might be something to use in teaching my Ethics class (and I probably will use portions of it), but by the time I began reading it, the book took on new importance as it has become quite clear that the moral and social fabric of the nation are in tatters, otherwise a moral reprobate such as Donald Trump never could have achieved the presidency. So, I read the book as part of my effort to understand, work for common ground, and repair the fabric of the country.

I've been blogging throughout my reading and now need to catch up by blogging about the final four chapters, so check out my blog for more detailed reflections.
