Hot, Flat and Crowded by Thomas L. Friedman
New York Times journalist Thomas L. Friedman tackles the world wide energy, population and resource allocation problems in this book. To the nerdy, (I plead guilty), it is gripping, and if you live on this planet it is important. Some of the topics explored get a lot of attention; others are basically ignored by most media. The genius of Freidman’s work is how he connects them. If you care about the world future generations will inherit this is a must read!
