In this audiobook, Friedman moves beyond his "flat" metaphor to consider how aspects of modern society are supernovas. He posits that the intersecting of Moore's Law on integrated circuits, the rate of human-created climate change, and the increasing spread of political instability offer up many challenges for societies, but also an opportunity for people and government to change society into something never seen before. As Friedman uses many personal anecdotes to make his points, Wyman does well with both the stories and the statistics. Friedman's ideas are fascinating, but without Wyman's ability to emphasize and to change delivery speed, listeners could easily get tired of the many details. Instead, Wyman keeps to a steady drive and an energetic projection that hold listeners' attention. L.E. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2016]
