We all sense it - our lives are speeding up at a dizzying rate. Thank You forBeing Late exposes the tectonic movements that are reshaping the world todayand explains how to get the most out of them. Friedman's thesis is that theplanet's three largest forces - Moore's law (technology), the market(globalization) and Mother Nature (climate change and biodiversity loss) - are allaccelerating at once. An extraordinary release of energy is reshaping everythingfrom how we hail a taxi to the fate of nations to our most intimate relationships.Thank You for Being Late is a work of contemporary history that serves as afield manual for how to think about this era of accelerations and how we cananchor ourselves in the eye of this storm. It's also an argument for 'being late' -for pausing to appreciate this amazing historical epoch we're passing throughand reflecting on its possibilities and dangers. Written with his trademarkvitality, wit and optimism and with unequalled access to many of those at theforefront of the changes he is describing all over the world, Thank You for BeingLate is Friedman's most ambitious book - and an essential guide to the presentand the future.
