this book just came out, so i haven't read it yet nor am i so sure i would spend thirty bucks on it but it sounds like a light read about globalization and offers one person's perspective. he brings it together by including some interesting current event examples which adds value.new book:
THE WORLD IS FLAT
A Brief History of the Twenty-First Century.
By Thomas L. Friedman.
488 pp. Farrar, Straus & Giroux. $27.50.
keywords: globalization, China, India, USA, outsourcing, education, impact perspective.
book review: http://nytimes.com/2005/05/01/books/review/01ZAKARIA.html?pagewanted=1
the author is a business writer/investigative reporter not a business/science/economics guru which means there will be a lot of fluff and the book is based on his opinion from this pov. seems like it could be an interesting read from the review.
other than that, i just wanted to bring it to your attention in case anyone was into business, economics, or current events.
(i'm looking for a good book to read on any of the keywords!, if you have any suggestions do tell)
