- The Hidden Sources of Love, Character, and Achievement
- By: David Brooks
- Narrated by: Arthur Morey
- Length: 16 hrs and 9 mins
This is the story of how success happens. It is told through the lives of one composite American couple, Harold and Erica - how they grow, push forward, are pulled back, fail, and succeed. Distilling a vast array of information into these two vividly realized characters, Brooks illustrates a fundamental new understanding of human nature.

Comprehensive insight on the human condition
The storytelling is fantastic. It made me understand the concepts while experiencing what the characters were going through in different situations. HIGHLY RECOMMEND this to everyone who is interested in learning why we do the things we do, and how to learn more from our environment.
