by Thomas L. Friedman

If you're living through the 21st century but feeling like the pace of life has picked up beyond what you can handle, "Thank You for Being Late" will help you understand why. Renowned journalist Thomas L. Friedman has returned to what he does best in this fascinating field guide to modern life--though many of the conclusions he comes to might leave you feeling anything but optimistic.
