    Description

    **A 2017 OWL AWARD NOMINEE**

    Today’s society is highly accelerated, in large part due to the exponential increase in computing power. With changes in technology and the environment, how can we cope with them? Three-time Pulitzer Prize winner Thomas L. Friedman provides an analysis of this changing world and explains how we can understand these constant changes and cushion their worst impacts.

    Learn how the planet’s three largest forces - technology, globalization, and climate change - are accelerating all at once and how they are transforming five key realms: the workplace, politics, geopolitics, ethics, and community. Friedman concludes that nations and individuals must learn to be innovative, quick to adapt, prepared to help the casualties of chance, and adept at shutting out the noise to access their deepest values.

    Thank You for Being Late serves as a field manual for navigating this era of accelerations. It is also an argument for “being late,” or pausing to appreciate life around you. If we slow down, we can reimagine work, politics, and community.
