    America has a huge problem. It faces four major challenges, on which its future depends, and it is failing to meet them. In That Used to Be Us, Thomas L. Friedman, one of our most influential columnists, and Michael Mandelbaum, one of our leading foreign policy thinkers, analyze those challenges - globalization, the revolution in information technology, the nation's chronic deficits, and its pattern of energy consumption - and spell out what we need to do now to rediscover America and rise to this moment.

    Story

    If you have not read/heard any of Friedman's work this will be a great book. If you have been living in a remote community for the past 10 years without access to news about the United States, then this will be a good book. Fortunately, I have read his work and am familiar with the news. I'm disappointed and wish I could get my credit back.
