An eye opening read. I read this book almost a year ago and find myself referring to it often when talking to others about globalization.

In the modern world, work flows to whatever spot on the globe where it can be performed most efficiently, and almost instantly. Friedman offers meaningful economic insights and anecdotes that put a new face on NAFTA and the future.

This is a comprehensive, yet detailed overview of the technological developments of the
last fifty years. Friedman talks about subjects that touch everyone's daily lives--Walmart, UPS, Dell--and how it is all tied together. The flat world is a fact of
everyday life for us now. It is fascinating to read about how it all happened.

classic Friedman. If Armin is loking at this the cover is a little dirty.
