I've been a fan of Fareed Zakaria for over a decade now. He's soft spoken with an understated intellect and deeply articulate. This book, like so many of his arguments, is about what our near future could be if we just made a few reasonable adjustments to our priorities.

Ten Lessons was written and published mid-pandemic, but the lessons remain prescient. The COVID-19 pandemic was a warning shot, a reminder that the societal disruption could be much worse next time. We might have to live with the reality of pandemics for a while, but we need not live with the disorganization and chaos that ensues because of our inability to work together to mitigate the effects.

A good documentation of the obvious lessons. Nothing brilliant here. ( )

A better title for this book should be: Ten Realities laid bare by the Pandemic
There were no clear lessons in the book. Each chapter was basically a blog post on a subject. We were just dumped information with no clear cohesive thread. There were many good ideas and musings but our entire book club was disappointed by the lack of concrete lessons and possible solutions. None of us would recommend the book to someone else. ( )

Normally I wouldn't bother to read anything by Fareed Zakaria who, according to Wikipedia, is employed by CNN and the Washington Post, and has, therefore most likely, what used to be called a Communist outlook but this title indicated that it would be quick-scan material so I checked it out of my local library and did just that. There are so many books in this style now, I am starting a new tag called "quick scan books" for this growing market segment that targets the short attention span, low information reader.

I disliked the pollyannaish tone regarding the Coronavirus pandemic and much else. This tone, optimism where alarm should be the rational response, is the propaganda offshoot of the liberal mantra, never let a crisis go to waste. The New Republic got the author right ten years ago when it said, "There's something suspicious about a thinker always so perfectly in tune with the moment." That catches it just right: the futurist's prescience on the subject of the recent past. Another trademark of his declaiming tone is to claim responsibility where not is due: If a river is flowing placidly in its course its due to farsighted hydrologists not the tendency for water to flow downhill.

Let's take a quick look at the ten lessons as they are bulleted in the chapter headings followed by my read between the lines:

Lesson 2 - What matters is not the quantity of government but the quality. Big government is not the problem.

Lesson 3 - Markets are not enough. Capitalism sucks.

Lesson 4 - People should listen to the experts -- and experts should listen to the people. How likely is the latter?

Lesson 7 - Inequality will get worse. Sounds like Obama's "managing decline."

Lesson 8 - Globalization is not dead. This chapter was likely included in the event Trump had won reelection.

Lesson 9 - The world is becoming bipolar. Its America's fault of course and August 1914 awaits if the U. S. doesn't change its ways.

Lesson 10 - Sometimes the greatest realists are the idealists. Sometimes but usually not.

The note below that this book has 1,320 pages is a typo. As I said earlier this is a quick knock off job for the short attention span audience. ( )
