3.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointing, 1 May 2006
I had heard quite a bit of good about this book and its author, but I was disappointed.

The overall message I tend to agree with, but - boy! - does he flog the idea! The examples are often pertinent and his arguments persuasive (US tax forms completed in India?) but the book suffers from the author's verbosity.

One or two examples would be fine, but any more than that becomes overkill. Arguments tend to be made in five different forms, and if a sixth can be made too, then the author goes for it.

It started well but then got difficult. I reached half-way and called it a day.

A pity - I'd have finished the book had Thomas Friedman or his editor cut out the overkill. A half or less would have been fine.

1.0 out of 5 stars Too many pages for nothing!, 8 April 2006
By A Customer
Why make so much noice about a dud! If you read the first 10 pages, you have read the book! The message of the book is interesting, but everyone except dummies have understood it after the page 10. So why waste so much paper to writte nothing more?
