We had an excellent trip to Iceland, the land of water, wind, fire, glaciers, the basics of life.

During the trip I started to read a book: “The World is Flat”.

Already the way I bought the book is amazing; I met a man and his son during a trainride from the airport. He was visiting ‘Den Haag’ because his son was playing football and he was invited to train with the ‘Den Haag’ team. Pretty cool for the guy!

The we’ve discussed ‘the world’ today and he pointed me to this book. I felt I had to read it and bought it the same week.

Then starting the holidays to Iceland I began reading, I’m not finished yet but I tell you: this is amazing.

Thomas Friedman, the Pulitzer Prize winning author of The Lexus and the Olive Tree, attempts to take readers through “A brief history of the Twenty-First Century”. He explains in a full detail how the world has changed over the last years, pushed by the internet, netscape, optical wires etc . . .

I realise that the world indeed gets flatter every day.

Order it, read it and realize this guy is totally right!
