This is a great book, and I highly recommend it. It may not be the book you want to take to Cabo San Lucas, but it is something that you should put on your "must read" list.
Although the book focuses on the global economy, business, government, and how technology has contributed to the flattening of the world, I couldn't help but be reminded how each and every one of us is affected by these changes. I have an etsy store where I am slowly, but surely, selling the clothing that my MIL purchased in Sri Lanka over 30 years ago. In the past week, I have made the following sales:
- to a lady in Germany who lives near a town we will be visiting in September
- to a buyer in Fair Lawn, New Jersey, the town where I was born and raised
- to another buyer in Sterling Heights, Michigan, the city where DH and I bought our first home
