Reviewed in the United States on July 3, 2015
In my view, Thomas Friedman has the world's best understanding of the inter-relationships between and among economics, globalization, technology, culture and history. He also has the ability to communicate his understanding of these forces and how they affect nations and sectarian groups as well as individuals. His understanding of the Middle East is especially strong and impressive. Although I thoroughly enjoyed reading The Lexus and the Olive Tree, and I felt that it really educated me on some very important subjects, the second half of the book was somewhat depressing to me; it seemed to indicate that globalization was taking the world into a constantly changing Darwinistic state of "survival of the fittest, a state that would hurt many nations and people.
