FREE for free

Chris Anderson, the author of the best selling “The Long Tail” has a new book “Free: The Future of a Radical Price“. And as suggested by the name, this book should, of course, available for free. Yes, really, you could read the full version below, word by word, for all 288 pages, for free! Enjoy! (Remember to press the “Toggle Full Screen” button on the top right corner to read it in full size.)

But if you really want to buy it (and support Chris financially for some reason)(or you simply want to be able to read it during your toilet sessions), you could always buy it from Amazon.com with a price of US$26.99. Well, it’s your choice!
