St. Paul, MN: West Publishing Company, 1994. Update of the 1991 edition. Wraps. xviii, 71,  pages. Wraps. Index. Cover has slight wear and soiling. Prepared for the Federal Laboratory Consortium for Technology Transfer. Federal Laboratory Consortium Special Reports Series No. 1. Technology transfer, also called transfer of technology, is the process of transferring technology from the places and in groups of its origination to wider distribution among more people and places. It occurs along various axes: among universities, from universities to businesses, from large businesses to smaller ones, from governments to businesses, across borders, both formally and informally, and both openly and surreptitiously. It occurs by concerted effort to share skills, knowledge, technologies, methods of manufacturing, samples of manufacturing, and facilities among governments or universities and other institutions to ensure that scientific and technological developments are accessible to a wider range of users who then further develop the technology into new products, processes, applications, materials, or services. It is closely related to knowledge transfer. Horizontal transfer is the movement of technologies from one area to another.

New York, N.Y. Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2016. First Edition [Stated], First Printing [Stated]. Hardcover. , 486 pages. Illustrations. Some pencil notes to text observed. DJ is price clipped. Signed by the author on the half-title page. Includes Acknowledgments and Index. Also includes Part 1: Reflecting; Part 2: Accelerating; Part 3: Innovating; and Part 4: Anchoring. Also includes Acknowledgments and Index. Thomas Loren Friedman (born July 20, 1953) is an American political commentator and author. He is a three-time Pulitzer Prize winner who is a weekly columnist for The New York Times. He has written extensively on foreign affairs, global trade, the Middle East, globalization, and environmental issues. In this work, Friedman begins by sharing a conversation with a fellow blogger, who also happened to be working as a parking attendant. The unlikely pair ended up spending time together as Friedman helped the blogger refine his process. This led to his own deeper reflection on defining his conceptual framework that underpinned his writing. He took a year's sabbatical to research and produce this book encapsulating what he discovered. Reviews John Micklethwait CBE, editor-in-chief of Bloomberg News, who reviewed Thank you for Being Late for The New York Times, wrote that this is Friedman's "most ambitious book — part personal odyssey, part common-sense manifesto". Friedman is a "self-confessed 'explanatory journalist' — whose goal is to be a 'translator from English to English' and this book is "a master class in explaining."
