The World is Flat

That's the title of Thomas Friedman's new book. What a lame title... I thought Friedman's first book - From Beirut to Jerusalem - was great (maybe just because I was young when I read it...), his second - the Lexus and the Olive Tree - was about 300 pages too long , and this one - just from hearing Friedman discuss it on talk radio, I can tell it's terrible. With his first book, Friedman was breaking new ground, with his second, treading water, and with this one - rehashing anecdotes that have been recounted much more eloquently and interestingly years ago.
