    Terrifying, Enlightening, Inspiring

    ...and just a little preachy. It's impossible to read this book and not learn something. Friedman has a unique ability to both educate and inspire. At one point, when he ascribes a political agenda to Mother Nature, one feels we're learning more about the author than his subject. Thw book remained almost impossible to put down.

    Thank you for being clear

    This book brings so many threads that are weaving together at increasing speed and complexity to create our (potentially beautiful but often scary) present and future world. While reading Mr. Friedman's detailed and clear explanations I felt that I was understanding many of these threads much more clearly. I find his call to each of us to be responsible to do what we can to create and sustain the communities where we live and are grounded both heartening and challenging. In the face of what often seems dehumanizing and overwhelming, I have to agree with Mr. Friedman that building human communities may be our best hope.

    Expected more

    Found the last half of book repetitive. A long hard read.
