Journalist and author Thomas Friedman is the winner of three Pulitzer Prizes: the first for coverage of the war in Lebanon, the second for coverage of Israel and the third for his commentary illuminating the worldwide impact of the terrorist threat.
Now one of the most celebrated observers of our time turns his attention to the 21st century with his new book, Thank You for Being Late: An Optimist’s Guide to Thriving in the Age of Accelerations. In this time of super-computing power, self-driving cars, economic interdependence, spiraling debt burdens, rising sea levels and the exponential acceleration of most everything, Mr. Friedman establishes a blueprint for how to think about modern times, take advantage of technology and feel optimistic about our future.
In addition to winning three Pulitzer Prizes for his work at the New York Times, Thomas Friedman is the author of six best-selling books, including From Beirut to Jerusalem, which won the National Book Award, The World Is Flat and The Lexus and the Olive Tree: Understanding Globalization.
Includes a copy of the book.
