    Thomas Friedman

    Columnist for The New York Times, Pulitzer Prize winning author, TV documentarian: these are a few of the hats worn by Thomas Friedman, an intellectual the man in the street can look to for straight talk about our increasingly complex world. The titles of a few of his books say much about him: his newest, That Used to Be Us: How America Fell Behind in the World It Invented and How We Can Come Back debuted at #2 on the New York Times bestsellers list; his earlier Hot Flat and Crowded: Why We Need a Green Revolution—and How It Can Renew America was a #1 best seller; and The World Is Flat has been called the best book on globalization.

    The Sacramento Speakers Series provides an open forum for the exchange of ideas, opinions, and perspectives as well as the enrichment of the Sacramento community. Each season's speakers represent a wide variety of subjects ranging from world affairs, politics, business & economics to the arts, entertainment, and the environment. Speakers are chosen on the basis of their career achievements, and unique expertise in their particular field of endeavor.
