An Optimist’s Guide to Thriving in the Age of Acceleration

Thomas L. Friedman, Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2016

The big acceleration, or: What happened in 2007? Extremely well-written book by the Pulitzer price recipient author about the technical acceleration, the development of overstrained states and on top climate change. This current explosive mixture is described in detail, in context and with hope. Friedman shares examples on were humans did prove already, that we can do better. He is explicit about the need of ethical innovation; he also shares some of his surprises, how simple sometimes a change can be introduced (chicken, gardens, internet). Friedman convincingly points out how trust and community are essential to win over the current 21st century challenges. He lists in a 12-point program, what governments and leaders in organization can do. He requests ethical competence from all leaders as well as courage to decide for the well-being of whole communities. Only with this, he indicates can social capital grow, which in reverse is the backbone of a positive future.

The book is a must-read for all leaders, interested in economical-societal-political complexities. Reading Friedman’s book creates trust and hope and shares examples how community and business can succeed.
