About the Author

Thomas l. Friedman's now-classic From Beirut to Jerusalem won the 1988 National Book Award and established him as America's leading interpreter of international affairs. Twice a Pulitzer Prize winner for his reportage, he lives in Washington, D.C.


"Required reading...No one gives a better explanation of [globalization] than New York Times correspondent Thomas L. Friedman....Impressive." --The Christian Science Monitor "Important...Friedman writes in straightforward language that should make globalization's complexities comprehensible. There's a great deal of wisdom in this book." --USA Today "Friedman gets the economics right. His book is a wellspring of economic common sense that will inoculate its readers against the 'globaloney' so prevalent in popular discussions of the subject." --Foreign Affairs "Friedman convincingly argues that what creates wealth has suddenly changed....The Lexus and the Olive Tree makes alarmingly good sense; it educates and provokes." --The Baltimore Sun "A lively mix of anecdote and analysis...full of solid reporting...Friedman is eager, provocative, [and] often entertaining....Insightful." --The Boston Globe "There is hardly a page in The Lexus and the Olive Tree without an underlineable passage....Friedman has used his remarkable vantage point to provide a readable overview that no academic or narrow-beat reporter could have given us....A genuinely important book." --Salon
