Author : Thomas L. Friedman.
I completed reading this book Jan 2006 (Moving this post from another blog. It took a while but it is one of the most important books I have read. IT is actually an eye opener. Every person who wants to excel or even survive in this global world should read this book. It is worth a read.

The book is about globalization. Author talks about a flat world. How technology has brought everyone in the world to the same level playing field. How 11/9 and 9/11 have changed the world. One was the day when Berlin wall fell and world was united (East and West) and one was the day terrorists attacked USA.

Author has done a great job of explaining every aspect of globalization. He explains why the world has become flat in last few years. Why India and China have an edge. What should a person do to survive in the world and how we can solve problems in the world keeping the flat world in mind? Finally author also explains the problems in unflat world especially conservative communities of Arab Muslims and what needs to be done to get them up to the speed. He tries to compare the Muslim population in India which is progressive and forward looking to the one in Saudi or Egypt where they feel oppressed…

Great read. Everyone should read this book. I was so impressed by this book I gave J my fried at work a copy of it as gift… U guys need to read it…. Get it today…:)
