    " Read only the original edition in 2005 in high school! Even though I still had no idea what globalization of business meant, I thought it took a pretty laid back approach to explaining everything. If you're a fan of complex ideas/phenomena but need someone to "Explain it Like I'm 5 Years Old," this book is a great introduction. "

    " Incredible author! Most poignant theory since 'Clash of Civilizations' "

    " An extremely apt title, it explains the functioning of the technological world today. Some great insights into what is actually taking place in the world especially "while we are sleeping". Revolutionises your thinking and makes you wnat to get up and become a part of this "new"world we are living and operating in. "

    " All in all it was okay. I read it a few years late to really find it insightful or groundbreaking, but it's overall point remains true. In order to survive, you must be able to adapt; and in an information sharing society, value comes from what only you can produce. Significant value comes from ideas and creativity, not from the ability to 'plug and chug,' no matter how complicated the equation. "
