It was almost a year-and-a-half ago that I reviewed Arthur C. Brooks Who Really Cares? The Surprising Truth About Compassionate Conservatism. Brooks was recently interviewed at The American, in which he summarises the data in his book. There's colored graphs, too.
If you read the interview closely, you can sound like you've read the whole book. AVI's key to sounding smart.
Brooks has two more books coming out this year: Gross National Happiness and Social Entrepreneurship.
