Summary
We all sense it, our lives are speeding up at a dizzying rate. This book exposes the tectonic movements that are reshaping the world today and explains how to get the most out of them. Friedman's thesis is that the planet's three largest forces Moore's law (technology), the market (globalization) and Mother Nature (climate change and biodiversity loss) are all accelerating at once. An extraordinary release of energy is reshaping everything from how we hail a taxi to the fate of nations to our most intimate relationships. This book is a work of contemporary history that serves as a field manual for how to think about this era of accelerations and how we can anchor ourselves in the eye of this storm. It is also an argument for being late, for pausing to appreciate this amazing historical epoch we are passing through and reflecting on its possibilities and dangers. Written with his trademark vitality, wit, and optimism, and with unequalled access to many of those at the forefront of the changes he is describing all over the world
