No, that's not the book they use in the MIT course. There is a book with the same title by journalist David Brooks, but that is not being used in the MIT OCW course you linked to. The book used in that course is The Social Animal by Elliot Aronson, edition published in 2011. A course offered at MIT would not rely on a popular account written by a journalist as its main textbook.

If you're trying to obtain advice, and you want people to take you seriously, don't carelessly litter your posts with misinformation and misdirection. If you really are interested in social psychology, you could do much worse than following an MIT OCW course.
