Description-
  • In 2002, Thomas L. Friedman won his third Pulitzer Prize for his "clarity of vision, based on extensive reporting, in commenting on the worldwide impact of the terrorist threat" after the attacks of September 11, 2001. This virtually unprecedented recognition underlines Friedman's unique ability to interpret and illuminate the world for Americans clearly, insightfully, and memorably. Longitudes and Attitudes is made up of Friedman's New York Times columns as well as a diary of his private experiences and reflections as he travels to Europe, the Mideast, and the Far East. He talks with the major players in the story and to men and women in the street as he develops and refines his unique perspective on the new kind of war America finds itself fighting.

About the Author-
  • Thomas L. Friedman has won the Pulitzer Prize three times for his work at The New York Times, where he serves as foreign affairs columnist. He is the author of three bestselling books: From Beirut to Jerusalem, winner of the National Book Award; The Lexus and the Olive Tree; and Longitudes and Attitudes. He lives in Bethesda, Maryland.

Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine Friedman's first-person observation positioned as current event commentary is a signature trademark, one that is captured in this volume of essays, originally published as columns in the NEW YORK TIMES. His characteristic buoyant tone and easy familiarity take the listener through difficult topics such as the aftermath of 9/11, Bill Clinton's letter to the Middle East, and speculation on the Israeli-Palestinian peace process. The author as narrator is an ideal format for someone like Friedman, who revels in bringing his ideas alive. Through intonation, pitch, and cadence he infuses his readings with a personal style, giving listeners the sense that they're having a one-on-one conversation instead of merely hearing past columns.
