Hear more from Arthur Brooks. Brooks is a prolific social scientist and public intellectual. His regular New York Times columns teach — among other things — how carrying a “magic briefcase” can change your behavior, how to become a “sturdy lad” instead of a “city doll,” and why money, power, and sex can bring misery rather than contentment. His popular book on this subject is Gross National Happiness: Why Happiness Matters for America and How We Can Get More of It.
