It's an Interview

David Brooks is your favorite conservative because he isn't really that conservative. He's thoughtful and interesting. Sometimes he can play devil's advocate a bit more than is optimal, but that's on the political side. This interview is about society and shifting tastes in New York and across the country beginning in the mid-to-late 90's, selling his book BoBos in Paradise.

Not worth paying for

Rambling self indulgences. Did not understand the purpose for this interview. The questions were vague and the answers were repetitive.
