Summary
Friedman discusses how the key to understanding the 21st century is understanding 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. And these accelerations are transforming the five key realms: the workplace, politics, geopolitics, ethics, and community. Friedman posits that we should purposely "be late"--we should pause to appreciate the amazing historical epoch we're passing through and to reflect on its possibilities and dangers.--
Summary
A field guide to the 21st century by a three-time Pulitzer Prize recipient and author of The World Is Flat shares strategies for surviving today's hectic technological, environmental and economic challenges, contrasting present-day environments with the working model of an earlier generation
