DOES MY BLOG LOOK FLAT?
After much procrastination, I finally broke down and bought a copy of Thomas Friedman's The World Is Flat
in the " 2.0" updated hardcover. I'm thinking of reading it back to back with Richard Florida's The Flight of the Creative Class
in order to have a "Flat vs. Spikey" comparison.
I have no strong opinion on Friedman. I found much to like in The Lexus and The Olive Tree
though at times, I also found passages in the book to be gratingly irritating which is why I put off reading The World is Flat
as long as I have. I have had some nice exchanges with Dr. Florida on his blog which means he is relatively accessible if I have questions while I am reading The Flight of the Creative Class
- an advantage that will no doubt be absent with Friedman.
If anyone out there has read both books -or either book for that matter - feel free to chime in now. I'd like to hear your opinion.
