Praise

“A writer with the ability to make you think. . . . Few express better the sheer perplexity of Americans today.” —The New York Times Book Review

“Eminently worth reading. . . . More than the reporting—often brilliant—and more than the access to insiders, it is [Friedman’s] ability to see a few big truths steadily and whole that makes him the most important columnist in America today.” —The New York Times

“For historical context, both before and after September 11, I can’t think of a more useful and informative book.” —Susan Larson, The Times-Picayune

“A valuable work. . . . Few writers have a better grasp than Thomas L. Friedman of the dimensions of America’s war on terrorism. . . . He is a brilliant reporter [who] has revolutionized foreign-affairs punditry.” —The Baltimore Sun

“Top-notch. . . . Well-researched, original thinking.” –USA Today

“Illuminating. . . . Eye-opening.” –The Houston Chronicle

“Essential reading for anyone keeping track of world events. . . . Eminently helpful in understanding the great divide yawning between the Western and Arab worlds.” –Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“A readable guide to the issues and arguments facing American policymakers.” –The Economist

“An invaluable reporter’s perspective on the world from outside U.S. borders. . . . Lucid . . . exceptionally frank and convincing . . . insightful.” –Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Fascinating reading. . . . Shockingly clear and prescient. . . . Probably no one else–journalist or diplomat–has pursued the complex threads of this story as relentlessly as Friedman.” –BookPage

“When the world changed last September, it was Friedman, more than any other journalist, who was there to explain what happened and why. . . . To read [Longitudes and Attitudes] is to relive an anguishing year in world history but also to witness a more human-size drama: Through these dispatches, you see a man trying to explain the unthinkable not only to his readers but to himself.” –Rolling Stone

“Insightful . . . a good example of why he won [three Pulitzer Prizes]. . . . Reading Friedman at any time is a delight.” –Wisconsin State Journal
