David Brooks

You'd think, if you listened to cultural stereotypes, that women are the more romantic of the sexes.  In fact, there's evidence that men fall in love faster and are more likely to believe that true love lasts forever.  Though men normally spend twice as much time talking about themselves as women do . . .
(New York Times columnist David Brooks is the author of The Social Animal, which is being published today.  The book uses the lives of a composite America couple -- Brooks calls them Harold and Erica -- to illustrate what scientists have learned in recent years about fundamental human nature.)
