His most ambitious book - part personal odyssey, part commonsense
manifesto ... An honest, cohesive explanation for why the world is
the way it is, without miracle cures or scapegoats. And that is why
everybody should hope this book does very well indeed -- John
Micklethwait * The New York Times *
Engaging ... In some senses Thank You For Being Late is an extension of [Friedman's] previous works, woven in with wonderful personal stories (including admirably honest discussions about the nature of being a columnist). What gives Friedman's book a new twist is his belief that upheaval in 2016 is actually far more dramatic than earlier phases. -- Gillian Tett * Financial Times *
