Friedman's first-person observation positioned as current event commentary is a signature trademark, one that is captured in this volume of essays, originally published as columns in the NEW YORK TIMES. His characteristic buoyant tone and easy familiarity take the listener through difficult topics such as the aftermath of 9/11, Bill Clinton's letter to the Middle East, and speculation on the Israeli-Palestinian peace process. The author as narrator is an ideal format for someone like Friedman, who revels in bringing his ideas alive. Through intonation, pitch, and cadence he infuses his readings with a personal style, giving listeners the sense that they're having a one-on-one conversation instead of merely hearing past columns.
