The New York Times columnist David Brooks has written a personal story of his own mid-life journey to enlightenment. The book addresses the four big commitments that define a life of meaning and purpose: family and spouse, vocation, philosophy or faith, and community.

Beyond the personal growth value of the book, nonprofits will find value in Part V on community. This section highlights community building, the power of communal storytelling that links people together. Brooks makes his case through the metaphor of two mountains — and for nonprofits, the second one is where the donor base lives.#wwmediaclub
