4.0 out of 5 stars
To the Average highschooler, April 19 2004
I had trouble keeping my attention while reading the book. The subject didn't grab me and I am not being a great reader to begin with struggled with its long stories. In the book, Thomas Friedman states that this new system referred to as "Globalization" the new economic system for the world. It adds a collection of things but mainly the idea is that with the inception of the internet and spread of information that one massive market has been created for the world. This new system allows people from all over the globe to be connected and keeps allowing for more chances for people to connect. He concentrates mostly on the good of globalization and doesn't look at many of the bad parts of it. I do believe though that if someone is very interested in the subject that this book would be a very good place to start in the understanding of globalization.
