I personally loved Blink, Freakanomics, Hot Flat Crowded, and Outliers.
If you like or loved any of these other books, you should really find this Free audiobook fascinating.
This book is in the same Genre as those.
But it has more of an Economic / Business / Internet tilt
I think is is better than "The Google Story" and " The Walmart Effect" but also along similar lines.
I must give this book 5 stars for being FREE!
But even if it was not Free, I would still give it 4.8 stars.
DEFINITELY worth the download and DEFINITELY worth the listen.
It is DEFINITELY a MUST listen for any aspiring entrepreneur.
I like Jack Reacher style characters regardless of setting. Put them in outer space, in modern America, in a military setting, on an alien planet... no worries. Book has non moralistic vigilante-justice? Sign me up! (oh, I read urban fantasy, soft and hard sci-fi, trashy vampire and zombie novels too)
haha, just kidding. I'd have paid for this book, even though I did get it for free (gratis, not libre).
It's quite an interesting look at the nature of digital economies (and is not too technical/complicated for a dummy like me to follow).
If you're not looking into the mass-production of items in the digital world, or you're not a small business owner heading out into the internet realm, and you're not a geek-head who likes to know stuff about the economics of the internet... you might not really find any "use" out of this information.
I must fall in the last category 'cause I liked learning this stuff, even though it's completely useless knowledge since I don't own a business, don't pirate or buy pirated items, and don't spend much time on the internet other than to write some book reviews. All in all, a very interesting look at digital economy.
Great book on the science of free. This explains free in a way I never understood. With some creativity and this knowledge, any business thrive using free. Worth the listen.
This book goes further to explain the idea of free than you thought was possible! From the Aztecs and the Greeks all the way to startups founded the year of publishing. The author himself reads the book and does a great job. If you're looking for a book that will spark some interesting conversations or simply provide some food for thought, "Free" will surely not disappoint.
