Abstract: 
Thank You for Being Late: An Optimist's Guide to Thriving in the Age of Accelerations Author: Thomas L. Friedman Publisher: Farrar, Straus and Giroux I 2016 I 496 pages Thank You for Being Late: An Optimist's Guide to Thriving in the Age of Accelerations is a reflective, mature, and explanatory guide of the accelerating world of our modern times, and an informative read to any policymaker. Friedman singles out 2007 as a vintage year, due to the emergence of the iPhone and Facebook, an explosion in computing storage capacity, the launch of Twitter, the release the Kindle, the tipping point of Internet usage, and the introduction of non-silicon parts to transistors, among many other technological advancements. All of these were coupled with fast changes in the global market manifested in intensified competitions, collaborations, exchanges, connections, and unfortunate accelerated changes in Mother Nature due to climate change, deforestation, marine acidification, and biodiversity loss.
