Hot, Flat, and Crowded


The World Is Flat has helped millions of readers to see the world in a new way. In Hot, Flat, and Crowded, Friedman takes a fresh and provocative look at two of the biggest challenges we face today: America’s surprising loss of focus and national purpose since 9/11; and the global environmental crisis, which is affecting everything from food to fuel to forests. In this groundbreaking account of where the country stands in 2008, he shows how the solutions to these two big problems are linked—how Americans can restore the world and revive America at the same time.
