While I think Mr. Friedman is an important social critic who needs to be heard, the premise of this book is stretched a little too far. The insights he poses in this book would probably have made a great article in the New Yorker or the Sunday New York Times Magazine. As it is, there's too much treading water and repetition of the same concepts to hold the listener's interest. I kept wanting him to say something new.
This book is worth hearing, but bring your patience with you.

Very insightful book and full of details and common sense wisdom. Living in Japan, I see much of what Friedman hopes to see in America. They are very concerned about natural resources and protecting the environment. I am always a little skeptical when politicians talk about these issues because I always think they are speaking for political gain. Friedman puts politics aside and shows how we should and can be freed from Oil dictators and at the same time lead the world with green technology. I would recommend this book to anyone with an open mind and a global vision for reform. Time is ticking!
