I found this book to be extremely interesting, although not riveting. It took me about 3 weeks to get through it because I often didn't feel like reading it. Friedman sets out to explain the causes and impacts of globalization and how governments, companies, and individuals are going to be forced to adapt. I thought the book sounded interesting but I was a little concerned to pick it up because I think many non-fiction authors take themselves too seriously. But I think Friedman's writing is interesting and not overly repetitive or preachy. Admittedly, towards the end I began skimming, but I think that was more due to my attention span than anything else. Overall, I'd recommend this book to pretty much anyone.
