Informative, but a little technical
It is helpful to have some background in economics and an interest in globalization to fully benefit from this book. Otherwise, the unitiated will still benefit greatly from the reading and content. It might take a little more consentration, however.

The Intellectual Rebuttal to The World Is Flat
The authors do not argue that globalization is better for us than has been popularly portrayed; rather they argued that globalization simply doesn't have as big an affect on us as has been popularly portrayed.
In contrast to most of what is written about globalization they seem to argue based on the best science of the day.
I personally think they have an important point, avoid the other extreme of arguing that globalization doesn't matter at all, and are much closer to right than most. This all raises the question, "How much can science know the outcome of self adapting systems (perhaps even self aware systems), like the international economy"; I'd guess some, but still less than most pendants (including the authors of this book) suggest.
