Already on its way

Hot, Flat, and Crowded

And with Bosch on the cover to boot!

This is the latest Thomas Friedman book, and I'm hoping amazon already has it on its way to me. I first stumbled across Friedman--or at least took note of him--when I read his article, "The Power of Green" in the New York Times. I used to browse the news in my spare time at the library, and that article was one I happened upon. I read all 11 pages, in as much of one sitting as my duties in the library would allow. I was really impressed by his thoughts and candor, and was shaken by the meaning and insight of that article. I sought out more of his writing and soon was following his weekly opinion articles at the Times and checking out his books from the library on post.

His views on the Green movement and its potential effects on our economy and standing in the world are so logical, it's hard for me to imagine people who could find fault in them. If you're looking for a good read, seek out some of his work. I'm totally hooked. I think he is saying things that are important and need to be heard.
