Thomas Friedman: Learning To Live In An Age Of Acceleration
More Less
Town Hall Seattle says
From technology, to economics, to weather patterns, the world we live in seems to be getting more and more extreme. In his newest book "Thank You for Being Late: How to Find a Job, Run a Country, and Keep Your Head in an Age of Acceleration," renowned journalist and three-time Pulitzer Prize-winner, Thomas L. Friedman ("The World is Flat") explains how to live in this age of dizzying acceleration. Drawing from his Minnesota childhood, Friedman lays out the differences between then and now, both frustrating and exciting. Asserting that we must learn to be fast (innovative and quick to adapt), fair (prepared to help the casualties of change), and slow (adept at shutting out the noise) in order to cope with this chaotic new world, Friedman establishes a blueprint for how to think about our times.
