this was a really awesome book! it explains in easy-to-understand language how and why so many things are free these days. really well done, I definitely recommend it (especially for free)
Chris Anderson has a command of the material and is great at reading it. I found the content enlightening and the stories engaging. Somewhat repetitive. Over-reinforced. Could have been shorter but still a great read/listen.
just one more book lover
A good book for readers interested in the phenom of Kindle (and Audible) self-publishing. This follows their whirl at writing and publishing a book in a crazy short time. Also some good info on how they used Kickstarter financing. Then a good chunk on their writing process and the blow-by-blow of how the put the story together.
If you want to self-publish, you might want to check out the authors' Write. Publish. Repeat. Great resource. There is another Audible book by someone (cannot remember name) that goes into the nitty gritty of building your audience before you publish and digital formatting. You can search under Kindle and publishing.
Simon Whistler, the narrator of this book, has the kind of voice you want to hear on the phone, saying, "Good morning, beautiful." Maybe a second career for Mr. Whistler?
The story line was tired with the "action" unnecessarily gorey. The description was pretty vivid and the overall layout of the story was pretty good, it felt more like it was written by someone skilled in the process but lacking a creative mind.
Developed a better storyline.
The two main characters were pretty.well differentiated but not deep.
I would have spent less time developing the overly gruesome hospital scenes and developed the storyline more fully. The flashback thing is ok and, to my thinking, adds to the overall mystery but the surrounding context did not appear.
Ok, I am on the high side of sixty yrs. old, but I have never seen the value in belaboring the gorey violence in a story. Truman Capote's In Cold Blood is still the most terrifying book I have ever read.
This book is great especially for any one over 30 to listen to and made all the better cause it's... well I'm sure you can guess the rest
The pros: The book not only tells you how free economy was born and why it is important, but how to apply it to your business model.
The cons: It is a little outdated in the examples but the principles are still valid.
