3 Awesome Best-sellers Whose Authors Give Them Online For Free

 

Since Paolo Coelho decided to publish “The Alchemist” online for free download, the masterpiece which changed the life of millions of people, many others have decided to make a similar step. Some to mark it as a milestone of a lifetime, and some with strategical purpose to connect with people and build and influence which could be harvested later on. Both motives are equally fair, as long as the rest of us get the chance to get inspired by stories we still do not dare to live. Today I am going to share 3 best-sellers whose generous authors decide to make them available – For free.

Stop stealing Dreams – A Manifesto of Seth Godin

Seth Godin, world class marketing evangelist who was the first one to coin the term Permission Marketing theoretical platform of the modern Inbound Marketing concept is author of multiple bestsellers and founder of several companies amongst which the famous Squidoo. He is a famous proponent of the deeply rooted past century industrial models of governing  economies which takes away the ability of people to iterate and innovate. His Manifesto “Stop Stealing Dreams” is a stunning reading which explicitly blames the modern education system which resides on past century principles and fails to prepare people for the new and dynamic Economy of Information and Connections, because it still teaches us that the purpose of education is to make us fit for 9 am to 5 pm job and stability.

He tells what the present model of education does to your children and who may be benefiting from keeping things “as they are.” A reading that will leave you stunned and contemplative. Download it here
