Interesting and informative, but good heavens, 20 cds take far too long to listen to. This is the first work of Friedman's that I've "read" and was quite impressed. He makes some very salient points (India/China are NOT racing us to the bottom and 31% of Wal-Mart employees receive state assistance in Georgia). I also appreciate his 11/9 v. 9/11 dichotomy and their respective effects on the flattening of the world, and the resulant "unflattening" that may be in process.
