What the Critics Say

"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)

    "WTF?"

    I should have read the other reviews. This is only chapter 13 and 14. That's it.

    "Incomplete"

    Why on earth did audible decide to post only the 2 new chapters when theres an entirely new 3.0 release, oh that's right because it's all about the money. waste of a download.

    "Required for teachers"

    If you are a teacher, read/listen to this book. It is the best book I've read all year. Friedman let's us look at the past, present and future in a way that will impact the way you see your students and your job. Please, read/listen!

    "Listen this book twice"
    What did you like best about The World Is Flat? What did you like least?

    I like this concept and would like to explore understanding with this book. Well balanced contents. What I know so far is, after 1000 years economic recovery comes back to the same nation/region, of course with efforts.At the end of this book, author compared outsourcing with terrorism which I do not like. I understand that these two topics are very distinct problem for US. Unemployment and War on terror can not be related, similarly outsourcing and terrorism cannot be compared together.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Thomas L. Friedman again?

    I read and liked The World Is Flat, would love to listen from Thomas Friedman in future.
