I finished it.
Bought the abridged version by accident. Loved this book, but I felt like I'd missed all the good parts. Get the unabridged version.
I love Tom Freidman's research and the perspective he brings to this work. I just wish the audio weren't so tedious and seemingly repetitive. I normally avoid abridged books, but this one might have have the same impact without so much detail. All in all, however, I was moved by the urgency of the problem and the inherent opportunity in being the country to solve it. It made me remember the choice we had in 2000 between Gore and Bush. I frankly thought that it wasn't much of a choice and, because I live in a red state, I voted for Nader. Freidman vividly illustrates how the leadership opportunity that 9/11 posed to our country was mishandled by Bush and we can only imaging how Gore might have approached it differently. I recommend the book.
