This is a bible for anyone researching on globalisation.
Kristian, Norway

I read the book as part of mye international marketing studies, and I am impressed with Friedman's ability to explain in an understandable way the mechanisms of Globalization. The book is easy to read, and incredibly interesting. It is intelligent and colorful.

Thank you!

My teacher in college informed me of this bookand it is a great book. I could read it over and over again.
Rebecca Collins

A good read, but an incredibly biased take on globalisation.

Extremely repetitive themes.

Incredible amount of neo-conservative dogma.
