As an audiobook, this never ending story of "flattening effects of globalization on our world" , benefits immensely from the upbeat, optimistic and often positively arrogant delivery. And that's the good thing!

Thorough and informative! The World is Flat aims to present an unbiased perspective of the changes that have and continue to influence globalization, and predict how we might influence these changes in the future. I was surprised by the amount of time spent focusing on Islam, and the beginning seemed somewhat slow and repetitive, but later parts definitely picked up the pace.
