Dedicated reader and amature writer. Love learning and sharing new knowledge.
Cris had excellent argument about the free products and services. Giving away products and services will bring back loyal customers. The book has many examples which support the author's argument. I enjoyed every minute while listening to the book.
Lots of great and relevant information about today's Web world and how the Free model works. I would absolutely listen to this audio book again.
I liked the concept that you can still make money by giving something away... like gmail or any other free web service.
This audio book gets top marks for me.
This book forced me to re-think how I price and offer my products.
I liked the way the examples were strong and supported the concepts.
I found it interesting to look at how marketing has come to the forefront and how pricing products/services in today's market requires creativity in order to compete.
For me, the audio edition enabled me to listen to a very interesting title that I would not otherwise have had time to read anytime soon. So in my case, yes, the audio version is better than the print version.
I enjoyed the discussions on the music industry as well as the software industry the best.
Chris is very easy to listen to and follow along, and reads in a way that engages the listener.
I don't think I had any extreme reaction. But I thoroughly enjoyed listening to the book.
Not sure I have found one yet.
The chapters focusing on the history of FREE and the comparison of atom vs. digital markets.
Interesting view of thing and the economy.
There is no character in this book.
again there is no sceen to be impressed with
The new economy
i enjoyed the opinion of the author and respect his view but not necessarily agree with all his points but the book in very interesting and easy to understand and accept
all the examples of his points
to be open minded and look at things differently
will continue to look for his books in the future
I will be making this a required textbook for my classes. It is timely and relevant to where we are now, as well as the future of technology and innovation.
Entrepreneur & Writer
he gave details on the historical timeline of FREE being used in the marketplace and showed how the use of FREE has changed with business today
this was my first Chris Anderson book
I laughed often
Free Great Interesting
Not sure of a single memorable moment, but Chris brings to light that the initial offer of free does hold value and the concept has been used by business for ages.
The tone of the story..
I do not know of any one moment.
For those who do not understand how a company can offer a product or service for free and still make a profit; this book should clear it up. Makes you get what you pay for a wive's tale. Starting with free can often deliver the best value and return for the long term.
