Get The World Is Flat For Free

I must be one of the few people who have not read The World Is Flat by Thomas L. Friedman since millions have purchased this book. When Publishers Weekly ranked the bestselling books from 1996 to 2006 in the fiction and nonfiction category, Friedman's book was the ninth book on the nonfiction list.

Beginning tomorrow, and running through August 4th, Farrar, Straus and Giroux and Macmillan Audio will be offering the audio edition of Thomas Friedman's The World Is Flat for free. Listeners will receive the audiobook in three easy-to-download sections, and soon after that, as an added bonus, will also receive an exclusive prepublication audio excerpt of Friedman's Hot, Flat, And Crowded: Why We Need A Green Revolution And How It Can Renew America. Farrar, Straus and Giroux will release the new book on September 8th. I received this notice from Change This.com who reported: Senior Vice President of marketing and publicity at FSG Jeff Seroy said the purpose of this audio giveaway is to "celebrate Friedman's enormous influence on our lives and times. And in preparation for the release of his new book, a green manifesto and a continuation in many ways of his thinking in The World Is Flat , we want to enable anyone who hasn't already read The World Is Flat to catch up with Friedman's argument and vision for the future." Here's where you'll sign up, if you'd like to receive these free audio downloads.

I saw part of a video presentation by Friedman and it was inspiring. And his thesis is probably getting truer all the time.

Thanks for letting us know about this. It's also an interesting marketing tactic for authors to make note of: When launching a new book, is there something you can give away that will bring new people into your world, connect them with your ideas, and make them fans?
