Quicklet on Thomas Friedman's The World Is Flat (CliffNotes-like Book Summary) by Scott Charles Summary

ABOUT THE BOOK The World Is Flat: A Brief History of the Twenty-First Century is Thomas Friedman's account of globalization: how it happened, what it means, and what we should be aware of when discussing the subject. Friedman's inspiration for the book came about as he was traveling to India on assignment for the Discovery Channel. The topic of the documentary was outsourcing. It came as something of a shock to Friedman to find out how many tasks actually could be outsourced, from tax preparation to reading X-rays. More shocking was the realization that globalization wasn't just about jobs. It is about culture, hopes, dreams, imaginations, and the future. If that seems like the rhetoric of romance, so be it. Because that is the way Friedman sees it, and that's the way he wrote it. For Friedman, the confluence of political, social and technological events in the last few decades has been nothing short of astounding. After Bangalore, he is looking at the world through new eyes. The World Is Flat: A Brief History of the Twenty-First Century was published by Farrar, Straus & Giroux in 2005. The "Updated and Expanded" edition, reviewed here, was published in 2006. MEET THE AUTHOR Scott Charles has over a decade's worth of experience as a research analyst. Scott spent 11 years at a Fortune 500 company providing research and analytical services to marketing teams, product managers, R&D staff, and executives. His specialty is doing comprehensive deep dives to support ideation processes, identifying business opportunities, market analysis and business development.

Chemotherapy Heals Cancer and the World Is Flat by Lothar Hirneise Summary

In the future there will be two groups of cancer patients. Those who have read this book - and those who are uninformed. For many years Lothar Hirneise has been traveling throughout the world looking for the most successful cancer therapies, and he has been explaining to people that there is much more available than just chemotherapy and irradiation. Recognized internationally as Europe's leading specialist in this area, he describes the results of his years of research in this encyclopedia of non-conventional therapies. The reader will also learn in detail why so-called experts in reality know little about cancer. In addition to descriptions of more than 100 cancer therapies and substances used in treating cancer, the author also explains which cancer therapies are used allopathically, for which types of cancer, and what is imperative for a patient to know before he subjects himself to such therapies. The 3E program, which is based on the analysis of case histories of thousands of people who have survived late stage cancer, is also described for the first time. Learn why so many people die of cancer, and why so many others do not. This book not only supplies an incredible amount of information, it also helps the cancer patient to find his own way to cure cancer through the active exercises of the 3E program.

Satellites Are a Hoax & the Earth Is Flat (Easily Proven) by Lawrence Cohen, Dr.,Brett Salisbury,"Ace: U. S. Intelligence Summary

(Do NOT let the NASA trolls with their fake user comments deter you) Salisbury and Cohen are Ex-Aerospace Engineers as well as U.S. Intelligence. Combined have written over 30 books. Salisbury wrote Aerospace Engineering for Dummies as well as Quantum Physics for Dummies. He resides in Nevada as well as Southern California (Yucca Valley) and is a whistleblower. He recently found out that Alex Jones works for Time Warner Cable which means Jones is a controlled opposition and lies about 20 percent of the time. Jones will not expose flat earth or satellites because of his employer TIME WARNER CABLE. Unfortunately who also owns CNN. You may want to type in right about now, Operation Mockingbird. However, we will cover that later. "Time warner cable is part of the "Big 6" that control what the world sees and hears. So beware of Alex Jones, he caught me by surprise as I was once a big fan...He is an actor that lied to us all and was supposed to be on the good side" -Brett Salisbury C.S.N. C-3 NASA just announced that the earth is "Pear Shaped" (Absurd). Also please note: The reviews are starting to come in with people who have not read the book. The book is NOT based on bible references, but do offer a few at key points. There are current experiments in the book that prove the earth is not spinning AT ALL. Remember, people are offended when you tell them NASA is a joke and that it's not possible for anything to survive in the thermosphere. They begin to "troll" the works written but never prove anything. Read for yourself and see what conclusion(s) you have about the axis spinning ball globe. It's truly ludicrous. Also preview the kindle edition (even if you don't buy that version) as it will show in color and more detail with links about this book. And remember the dome or tent in Isaiah 40:22? Even science admits there is one now at 7200 miles above the surface of the earth: http: //www.inquisitr.com/1638338/scientists-discover-an-invisible-shield-surrounding-earth-baffled-at-how-it-formed/
