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.
