bookshelves: skimmers, books-i-didn-t-finish

I am reading through this in anticipation of a library book club meeting next week. Friedman repeats his mantra (the world is flat) every two pages at the very least and is driving me nuts. But the information is certainly interesting. We'll see if I decide to finish...

Lauren I've read a couple Friedman books and really enjoyed them. I think they're really interesting for anyone interested in economics, globalization, global politics, etc. However, I think I prefer The Lexus and The Olive Tree. It's been a few years since I've read either, though.

Leslie Hi Janet--I just skipped through this book and then read the World is Open instead--updated view of the Friedman theory by Curt Bonk. Very useful--but I get what you mean about Friendman's style. I am an English teacher, so style really affects my enjoyment.
