Bobos in Paradise: The New Upper Class and How They Got There
It used to be pretty easy to distinguish between the bourgeois world of capitalism and the bohemian counterculture. The bourgeois worked for corporations, wore gray, and went to church; bohemians were artists and intellectuals. But now, the lines are blurred: It's hard to tell an espresso-sipping professor from a cappuccino-gulping banker. Laugh and sob as you read David Brooks' observations on the new dominant class. Bobos in Paradise is a witty and serious look at the cultural consequences of the information age and a penetrating description of how we live now.
