In his new book "The Road to Character," New York Times columnist David Brooks writes that Americans focus too much on "resume virtues" -- the ones that can get you a job -- and not enough on "eulogy virtues," the ones that get talked about at your funeral. The latter, he writes, include qualities like bravery, honesty and loyalty. Brooks joins us to talk about what it means to live a moral and meaningful life.
