Since I dont get time to read books (other than my required MBA readings) I tried to get audio and video versions of really good books and documentaries.

Wanted to read the abovebook for a long time, I finally got hold of an audio version from public library, So far I am at the 4th chapter and really like it. Friedman discusses all things that are already working to make the world really flat in the 21st century. Part of it deals with how India  got into this whole outsourcing business, since I have been following articles since early 2000 I can totally relate to what he says about how this thing took off.

One of the other interesting things that I got to watch recently was the PBS documentary  Commanding Heights. I would highly recomend it to someone who wants to learn about global economics.
