Thank You For Being Late by Thomas Friedman. Recommended by D. McCune: “The second half of this book gives a hopeful view, or least possibility, of where we are in this century and how, as a society, we might get to a better place. (The first half is about the technology that’s moving us along at an accelerating pace that’s hard to keep up with – the second, and to me, more interesting part is how to live with so much change.)” Rating: 7/10. Purchase on Cokesbury, The Thoughtful Christian, or Amazon.
