Thomas Friedman is one of America’s most visionary thinkers. This three-time Pulitzer Prize-winner is one of the world’s preeminent commentators on international affairs. When events in this nation and abroad seem too menacing to comprehend, the American public looks to him for the straight talk and reliable information we need. He has traveled the globe reporting on China, the Middle East conflict, U.S. domestic politics and foreign policy, global trade, and the impact of climate change. His foreign affairs column, which has appeared in the New York Times for 28 years, is syndicated in 700 newspapers worldwide. Some of his international best-selling books include The World is Flat and From Beirut to Jerusalem to name a few.
