©2007 Thomas L. Friedman; (P)2007 Audio Renaissance, a division of Holtzbrinck Publishers LLC
"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)
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.
vegan for life
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!
This is only two chapters of the book. It is not the full book. Additionally, the narration is terrible - the narrator does insulting accents for the quotes attributed to women and people with accents.
I have been an audible listener for a long time and this is the WORST book I have ever bought!
Don't make my mistake - steer clear!
Fake accents which are culturally insensitive
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.
I read and liked The World Is Flat, would love to listen from Thomas Friedman in future.
The World Is Flat Touched on many topics that i would like to go back over.
The behind the scenes look at companies like Amazon and UPS
