Editorial Reviews

Review

"Anderson's timing couldn't be better. FREE arrives as whole swaths of the economy are having to contend with consumers finding ways--some illegal, many not--to go Free." (Boston Sunday Globe)

"Chris Anderson's FREE unpacks a paradox of the online marketplace--people making money charging nothing. What was once just a marketing gimmick has morphed into the basis of a trillion-dollar economy." (
Newsweek)

"I'd put Anderson and his work on par with Malcolm Gladwell and Clayton M. Christensen as one of the more important pieces of business philosophy published in the emerging global, digital era." (
Alan T. Saracevic, San Francisco Chronicle) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
