Thank You for Being Late: An Optimist’s Guide to Thriving in the Age of Accelerations

Thank You for Being Late: An Optimist’s Guide to Thriving in the Age of Accelerations by Thomas L. Friedman, 2016

I try to read every new book by this author, a NY Times columnist and Pulitzer Prize winner, because I find his writing style accessible, his topics and research fascinating. His latest book didn’t disappoint; it examines the transformations in our lives and the world caused by technology and globalization. Friedman is an optimist (see the second part of the book’s title), a quality much appreciated at this tumultuous time.

Pirate Hunters: Treasure, Obsession, and the Search for a Legendary Pirate Ship by Robert Kurson, 2015

Here is a good biography if you are taking part in the Rossland Public Library’s adult summer reading program (check out the great prizes to be won). The story follows the adventures of treasure hunters in the Caribbean, seeking long-lost pirate bounty. Note: this title is available as an ebook.
