Free e‑Book of Chris Anderson’s “Free”

Chris Ander­son, the Wired Mag­a­zine Edi­tor who is best known for The Long Tail, has pub­lished his lat­est book, Free: The Future of a Rad­i­cal Price. You can buy it on Ama­zon, or read a free ver­sion on Scribd. As you may know, this book has already gen­er­at­ed some con­tro­ver­sy. To begin with, Ander­son has had to answer charges that he pla­gia­rized mate­r­i­al from Wikipedia. And then Mal­colm Glad­well (the author of Out­liers, The Tip­ping Point and Blink) gives Free a rough review in The New York­er.

PS You can now down­load an audio ver­sion as a free zip file here.

    Geez, I real­ly like your website…you have led me to many treasures…but, I must be dumb…I can’t fig­ure out how to get Free for free from Google…and Scribd seems to be USA only, I am in Thai­land…
    Thanks for any fol­low-up, I imag­ine oth­ers are hav­ing some trou­ble, too.

    Thanks again for a trove of trea­sure for an old teacher and young stu­dents.

    Hi, great web­site, but what was true of the Audio­book (thanks for the links!) is true for the dig­i­tal down­load book: US only, for Scribd and Google books.
