Critical Praise

"Essential reading."

——Robert Wright, Slate

"Compelling . . . Exciting and very readable . . . One mark of a great book is that it makes you see things in a new way, and Mr. Friedman certainly succeeds in that goal."

——Joseph E. Stiglitz, The New York Times

"No one today chronicles global shifts in simple and practical terms quite like Friedman."

——Clayton Jones, The Christian Science Monitor

"[Friedman] nicely sums up the explosion of digital-technology advances during the past 15 years and places the phenomenon in its global context . . . He never shrinks from the biggest problems and the thorniest issues."

——Paul Magnusson, Business Week
