Chris Anderson’s latest book “FREE : the future of a radical price” just arrived in the office.

He argues the case for FREE – and provides a long list of suitable examples.

FREE profiling is very much at the heart of the PeopleMaps’ philosophy, and as such, this was always going to be one of our must-reads.

Did we rush out and buy the book? No, of course not!
