book report: The World is Flat

Has this already been reviewed?
Unclemick have you read it?
World is Flat was informative. First part of book compelling, hard to put down.
I lucked out, walked into the library and it was on the bestsellers shelf (our library doesn't hold/wait list bestsellers).
Several memorable paragraphs, quite a few non-politically correct. Wish more journalists had the chutzpah to speak up re:
What about a "World is Flat" investment the companies profiled in the book.

I haven't read the book, but I've read his NY Times piece on Dell's outsourcing. Pretty good stuff. McKinsey has some good hard data on outsourcing and offshoring.

Worth a read if you have the time:
