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.
The narrator was easy to listen to and clear. It has given me a new perspective on how to do business. I will be using some of these ideas in creating my new business.
The narration is inviting & although the concepts aren't fresh per second, there's a refreshing spin there on.
Very interesting book about free stuff. As it's free, just download and listen. I wouldn't mind to spend a credit on it.
Whether you're thinking of starting a business, already running one, or simply curious about how free thrives, Chris Anderson's book should be on your list of things to read / listen. The little pieces of history leading up to the business model of free is astounding and will leave your knowledge bank all the more richer. Worth the listen!
