Thomas Friedman on the Age of Acceleration: Talk and Reception - SOLD OUT


Hear New York Times columnist and three-time Pulitzer Prize winner Thomas Friedman discuss the art of survival in an age of dizzying acceleration. Before the event, meet Thomas Friedman and receive a copy of his new book at a private reception.

From technology, to economics, to weather, our world seems to be growing ever more extreme. In his latest book, Thank You for Being Late: How to Find a Job, Run a Country, and Keep Your Head in an Age of Accelerations, renowned journalist and three-time Pulitzer Prize 


winner, Thomas Friedman (The World is Flat), explains how to live in this age of dizzying acceleration. Drawing on his childhood in the American Midwest, Friedman spells out the differences between then and now, both irritating and exciting. Arguing that we must learn to be fast (innovative and quick to adapt), fair (prepared to help the casualties of change), and slow (adept at shutting out the noise), Friedman establishes a blueprint for how to make sense of our chaotic life and times.
