Thomas Friedman hits all the right points in listing our national problems—Energy, Education, Debt, Jobs. He accurately describes the problem, gives a history of the problems, gives concrete examples of the problem, tells why it is a problem. And then he discusses solutions for the problem—which is the problem with the book. You see, Tom, if human nature were as good as it would take us to be to implement these solutions, we wouldn’t be in the frigging mess we’re in in the first place. If you are an optimist, Wow, you’re going to be bowled over by the terrific solutions to all these national problems. If you are a crabby pessimist like me, well, it just isn’t going to happen....which is a real shame.
