From the winner of the Pulitzer Prize and No. 1 international, author of the best-seller The World is Flat, essential and entertaining field guide to prosper in the twenty-first centuryWe all have the senses, it – something big is happening.You feel it in your workplaceYou feel when you talk to your childrenYou can’t miss it when you read the newspapers or watch the news.Our lives are accelerating – and it’s dizzying.In Merci pour le Retard, a work contrary to everything he tried to do before, Thomas LFriedman, exposes the tectonic movements that are reshaping today’s world and explains how to get the most out of them.Friedman’s thesis is that, to understand the twenty-first century, you must understand that the planet, Moore’s three greatest forces of law (technology), the market (globalization) and Mother Nature (climate change and biodiversity loss) – are all factors that accelerate both, transforming the workplace, politics, geopolitics, ethics and community.An extraordinary release of energy is reshaping everything from the way we hail a taxi for the fate of nations to our most intimate relationships.It is the creation of vast new opportunities for individuals and small groups to save the world – or perhaps destroy it.Thank You Being Late is a work of contemporary history that serves as a field manual for thinking about this era of acceleration.It is also an argument for “being late” – to pause to appreciate this incredible time of history, we are passing through and reflect on its possibilities and dangers.It shows us how we can anchor ourselves as individuals in the eyes of this storm, and how communities can create a “top layer of trust” to do the same for their increasingly diverse and digital populations.Written with his mark of vitality, humour and optimism, and with unique access for the many people at the forefront of the changes he describes everyone, Thank You for Being Late is Friedman’s most ambitious book – and essential mistletoe.
