I read this for class. The main point of the book is that outsourcing is good because money saved by outsourcing can be reinvested in the company, allowing businesses to improve their skills and focus on their core competencies(specialization). The book is long, repetitive, and poorly written. In my opinion "The World is Flat" is a much better book about outsourcing.
