Publisher's Summary

With the "flattening" of the globe, has the world gotten too small and too fast for human beings and their political systems to adjust in a stable manner? Now in a third edition with a new preface, Friedman's account of the flattening of the earth is a modern classic.

Critic Reviews

"This book showcases Friedman's gift for lucid dissections of abstruse economic phenomena, his teacher's head, his preacher's heart, his genius for trend-spotting." ( The Washington Post)"No one today chronicles global shifts in simple and practical terms quite like Friedman. He plucks insights from his travels and the published press that can leave you spinning like a top." ( The Christian Science Monitor)

Goodstuff

The content is excellent, the voice alterations are unnecessary and a bit odd. overall good listen and highly suggest this, more so for those with limited knowledge on offshoring, in sourcing and outsourcing.
