Friedman, T. (2016) Thank You for Being Late. Farrar, Straus, and Giroux, New York.
Friedman’s latest book challenges you to look at the world in a way never imagined before. You will have a different lens in how you understand the news, the work you do, the education your kids need, the investments your employer has to make, and the moral and geopolitical choices our country has to navigate.
Friedman postulates to understand the 21st century; you need to understand that the planet’s three largest forces―Moore’s law (technology), the Market (globalization), and Mother Nature (climate change and biodiversity loss)―are accelerating all at once, thus they are transforming five key realms: the workplace, politics, geopolitics, ethics, and community. Friedman contends we can overcome the multiple stresses of an age of accelerations―if we slow down, dare to be late and reimagine work, politics, and community.
