David Axelrod in Conversation with David Remnick—Believer: My Forty Years in Politics
One of the key players in the historic campaign that made Barack Obama President, David Axelrod has been involved with some of the greatest political changes of the last decade.

He is the author of several books, including The Bridge: The Life and Rise of Barack Obama, King of the World, Resurrection and Lenin’s Tomb, for which he received both the Pulitzer Prize for nonfiction and a George Polk Award for excellence in journalism. He became a staff writer at The New Yorker in 1992 and has since written over a hundred pieces for the magazine. In 2000, Remnick was named Advertising Age’s Editor of the Year.

David Brooks: On Character
Join New York Times columnist David Brooks for an in-depth discussion about what constitutes character as explored in his new book, The Road to Depth. Some people seem to possess inner lives that are more substantive than the rest of ours. How do they do it? Depth, argues Brooks, is the core of our being and something we cultivate over time; it’s engraved by thought and action; it’s built through the commitments we make—to a nation, a faith, a calling or loved ones—and the sacrifices we endure because of those commitments.
