Nice to read a book that finds both reds and blues to be at fault and not helping in the current political climate. Jibes well with my own views of liberal anarchy ( )

This book took me a while to read because I would become frustrated as I read, put down the book, and not come back to it for some time. Friedman, who wrote "The World Is Flat," addresses a number of key issues in regards to America's leadership in the world, and how other countries have latched on to the ideals and standards which we projected but have now fallen away from. I appreciate Friedman's emphasis on education, since I work in a college and see many of the problems that he describes. Friedman discusses the false image that many Americans hold regarding American policy, politics, education, and technology, and refutes them with citations of studies, comparisons, and reports.

Certainly not a pleasant read, but one worth examining. ( )

I first became aware of Thomas Friedman when a New York Times article he wrote came on my google news feed for anything with the title of my book.

The novel I'm currently writing is called 'None of the Above', about an unconventional president. I saw a three page article that felt like a synopsis of my book, saying Thomas Friedman's choice for president is None of the Above. So I researched the author and found this book.

It was weird/exhilarating to read a book with so many of the same thoughts I've had over the last few decades. I've been in tech for 20 years, so I've been familiar with the effects of globalization and hyper connectivity first hand.

One of the things I did learn about was some of the historical context back in the 70s for some of the issues we face today. The book laid out the historical formula for American success in clear terms.

I highly recommend the book. It's not too late to salvage our country, but we're definitely on a downward slope.

Good summary of what's gone wrong and mostly non-partisan in the blame (they rightly key on Republican fiscal myths and failures, but also pull no punches with Democrats weaknesses), though anyone aligning themselves with the "right" would likely see this as "liberal." (Can you tell I'm not a fan of those labels?)

I don't think their proposals as to "how we can come back" are very achievable though. Too idealistic. They do recognize the many reasons why the collective solutions which are needed will fail in the current political culture. ( )

It makes no sense for China to have better rail systems than us, and Singapore having better airports than us. And we just learned that China now has the fastest supercomputer on Earth - that used to be us. - President Barack Obama, November 3, 2010

Preface
A reader might ask why two people who have devoted their careers to writing about foreign affairs—one of us as a foreign correspondent and columnist at The New York Times and the other as a professor of American International Studies—have collaborated on a book about the American condition today.
This is a book about America that begins in China.
