I was surprised that Thomas Friedman did not compare and contrast the current global warming situation with the Dust Bowl tragedy of the 1930s. During the 1930s, the U.S. government had refused to recognize the plight of the mid-west farmer and the devastated communities of the plain states. It took a government sponsored effort to combat and fix the problem.
In addition, this books could have been shortened by 2/3. Much of this book consisted of long and drawn out examples of global warming.
All in all, this book was interesting and informative but too lengthy.
This audiobook was very boring.
No real lessons learned.
No valuable insights.

This book read like a masters thesis in political science, political ideology and political theory. I was hoping to read more about Barack Obama's struggles as a youth and examples stories of situations that occurred that helped build his character.
All in all, this books was interesting but not very entertaining.
Not worth the $$$ especially since this series was once available free on CSPAN. I hold a BS in Computer Science from a Big Ten University and I am employed as a Computer Systems Support Engineer and I had a difficult time following some of the speakers from a technical perspective.
