The New York Times best-selling author heralds the future of business in Free. In his revolutionary best seller, The Long Tail, Chris Anderson demonstrated how the online marketplace creates niche markets, allowing products and consumers to connect in a way that has never been possible before. Now, in Free, he makes the compelling case that, in many instances, businesses can profit more from giving things away than they can by charging for them.

You will never quite know how many opportunities you have missed by lacking the persuasive powers to truly get what you want out of life. Whether it's attaining more influence at work, or simply getting the kids to do the dishes. All too often people are left wanting, as they aren't equipped with the right psychological tactics to get these things done. Imagine if you could effectively massage conversations in your favor, without manipulation or deception, to effortlessly bring people round to your way of thinking.

For me this book covers the subject deeper than most. Meeting people where they are at, but first you must know exactly WHERE THEY ARE AT before you can meet them there. He teaches you how to fully connect with understanding and deep compassion which enables others to want to listen to what you have to say. Then, how to speak so words and feelings are actually heard. I read this book twice and the 2nd time around had a huge impact on me!
