Thomas L. Friedman "A Field Guide to the 21st Century: How to Live in an Age of Acceleration"
THU, APR 20
“Friedman wants to explain why the world is the way it is – why so many things seem to be spinning out of control… as a guide for perplexed Westerners, this book is very hard to beat.” The New York Times
Three-time Pulitzer Prize recipient Thomas L. Friedman is a New York Times columnist whose bestselling books include The World Is Flat and From Beirut to Jerusalem. His “latest must-read” (Booklist) is Thank You for Being Late: An Optimist’s Guide to Thriving in the Age of Accelerations. In this essential blueprint for how to think in our time, Friedman looks to innovators – from AT&T executives in Silicon Valley to U.N. experts in Syria – who are finding bold solutions to the pace of change transforming our planet. With vision, clarity and wit, Friedman will show that if we dare to slow down in this age of acceleration, we can use our time to reimagine work, politics and community.
