Fascinating subject matter with a strong amount of data to back up his claims. Anderson does a great job of encouraging the reader to explore the edges of their imagination with how the "free" model could actually create profit. While Anderson is a good reader, this is a book crammed full of information that you may need to listen to multiple times to fully work through all that is presented.
Pretty interesting. Probably could be slimmed down a bit. But good content. As someone who grew up with the Internet, it was interesting to learn about pre-Internet free and free outside America.
Everyone knows a little something about free, but this audio book expands your understanding to the broader picture that currently exist with the Internet.

I will need to buy the book since it is chock full of so many great examples. This is a great example of how much better the audio books are when the author narrates it themselves.

Yes, it was an interesting take on the free economy. I'm sure I missed some of the details.
The section on how piracy and counterfeiting can in some cases benefit the creator of the original product was particularly interesting.
