Première phrase
Your Highnesses, as Catholic Christians, and princes who love and promote the holy Christian faith, and are enemies of the doctrine of Mahomet, and of all idolatry and heresy, determined to send me, Christopher Columbus, to the above-mentioned countries of India, to see the said princes, people, and territories, and to learn their disposition and the proper method of converting them to our holy faith; and furthermore directed that I should not proceed by land to the East, as is customary, but by a Westerly route, in which direction we have hitherto no certain evidence that anyone has gone. Lire la première page

Long winded 3 avril 2008
Par reenum - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Friedman's points are well taken. Globalization has taken over the world and it is interesting how much more connected the world is today.

My problem with this book is that Friedman doesn't make his points succinctly. After reading to page 300, I see no reason why this book should be as long as it is. Friedman's long windedness causes him to use 500 words when 50 would be appropriate.

For this reason, I lost interest and abandoned this book.

Winning in a new era 24 septembre 2006
Par Ilya Grigorik - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Perhaps it was not meant as one, but I found this book to be great source of inspiration and motivation. As a graduating computer science student I could identify with many sociological and technological trends identified and discussed by Thomas Friedman.

From the impact of the 'digital convergence' (internet, primarily) in our recent years which has fueled great 'horizontal collaboration' and emergence of 'Web 2.0' to the shortfalls of our educational systems and rise of China and India - all of these factors are working together in intricate ways to reshape our world. It's a book meant to be read with an open mind and fair dose of introspection. The era of the knowledge worker is passing and we need to re-brand ourselves to succeed; in many ways it's harder because of the greater competition, but in many ways it can also be far more rewarding if we position ourselves correctly.

I've recommended this book to a number of my classmates and received positive feedback from everyone that picked it up. It's a rewarding read and well worth the time. "A Whole New Mind" by Daniel Pink and Chris Anderson's "The Long Tail" complement this book well, all building on the same observations. Whether you're on the brink of joining the workforce like myself, or looking into advancing your career, these are indispensable resources.
Why The World Is Shrinking And Why That Is A Good Thing 28 avril 2008
Par Joao Cortez - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
With information moving at the speed of light and a huge transportation network connecting virtually any dots in the planet, Thomas Friedman provides a clever insight into globalization. In short it means that a service or a product should be produced wherever it's most efficient that the whole world benefits from that. Of course, there are some adjustments necessary as this puts a lot of forces and pressures for capital, market and job shifts. One caveat though - and not explored in the book - is that globalization of products relies on a cheap source of transportation energy. With oil prices climbing really fast, either a competitive alternative is found, or the globalization of products may be compromised. Highly recommended for the insight and entertainment of thought.
Amazing Discovery 11 juillet 2014

Amazing discovery by Friedman. It was absolutely profound the way he defined the world as flat based on new technology.
Stay inform of developing technology and Middle Eastern culture 2 octobre 2012
Par Carlos T. Navarrete - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This book was ahead of its times when it first was published and it also gave me a good feel for Middle Eastern culture. Great for those wanting to learn more about the Middle East and why they are how they are.
