Now Download Free Audiobook of Chris Anderson’s “Free”

A quick update: Yes­ter­day, I men­tioned that you can grab on Google Books and Scribd a free e‑book of Chris Ander­son­’s lat­est work, Free: The Future of a Rad­i­cal Price. Today, I dis­cov­ered that you can also down­load an audio­book ver­sion of Free over at It will cost you noth­ing. But you will need to reg­is­ter with Audi­ble, pro­vid­ing name, email, user­name, etc.  If you find that you live in a geo­graph­i­cal mar­ket that Audi­ble won’t serve, then you can down­load a uni­ver­sal­ly free ver­sion at’s web site. The page is here, and the zip file is here.

Sep­a­rate­ly, if  you start a 14 day free tri­al with Audi­ble, you can down­load two free audio books. This will give you access to many cur­rent best­sellers (Mal­colm Glad­well, David Sedaris, Barack Oba­ma, etc.). Whether you stick with the mem­ber­ship (as I did), or can­cel, you can keep the free books. Get more details here.

    It’s prob­a­bly worth not­ing on posts like this. ‘Free’ is not avail­able to many loca­tions out­side the US due to the dread­ed copy­right ‘geo­graph­i­cal loca­tions’ lim­i­ta­tion. Saves a lot of irri­ta­tion for those hope­fuls who click on through.
