How does one live?

In which the best-selling author follows up his realization of how different his life could have been with a reflection on what he plans to do with it. This time around, Moore, A&S '01, whose 2010 The Other Wes Moore chronicled the parallel journey of another young African-American Baltimore man of the same name, continues his life story, touching on his military experience in Afghanistan and his Wall Street career before he decided he wanted more from his time on this planet. The Work (Spiegel & Grau, 2015) is the sort of book that, when described, sounds like a TED talk or prelude to a political career, but when read is much more generous. And the sections in which Moore profiles people who work in mentorship programs and engage in humanitarian efforts document the same kind of everyday human tenacity found in Studs Terkel's books.
