The world seems to be spinning faster every day. We all need someone to slow it down and put it in context. Tom Friedman does just that. He made sense of our times, past and present, with his bestsellers The World is Flat, From Beirut to Jerusalem, and That Used to be Us. This November, Friedman will do the same for the information age with his new book Thank You For Being Late.
There’s something big going on. Between countries and economies collapsing and a technological boom, the 21st century has been confusing and requires interpretation. In Thank You for Being Late, Thomas L. Friedman connects the dots, from cloud computing to the Islamic state, demonstrating that technology, globalization, and climate have transformed the way we work, your kids grow, and politics operate. Friedman shows that we can overcome the stresses of our accelerated age – if we re-think work, politics, and community for this new era.
With vision, authority, and wit, he offers a blueprint for how to think, survive, and thrive in an age of dizzying acceleration and non-stop commotion.
New York Times columnist Tom Friedman is renowned for his direct reporting and sophisticated analysis of complex issues facing the world. According to Foreign Policy magazine, "Friedman doesn't just report on events; he helps shape them." Winner of three Pulitzer Prizes, he has covered monumental stories from around the globe for The New York Times since 1981.
Thank You for Being Late will be available on November 22, 2016.
