3 Best Free Direct Download eBooks

I don’t care much for long lists. That’s why I have added the top 3, and not the top 50, of the best free eBooks I have read (the most inspiring ebook is this one). And it saves me a lot of time.

I haven’t read many eBooks that are both free and where a direct download is provided (no optin required). But among the ones I have read, there are three I think you should read (right now):

They are:

Number 1: Seth Godin’s Unleashing the ideavirus

Seth Godin is probably my favorite author when it comes to books about marketing. I have read all of his books, and I bought unleashing the ideavirus before I realized that it was available for free. The book is about how to get ideas, and how to spread them from customer to customer. He provides many examples of successful marketing that has been spread throughout the world.

Number 2: Leo Babauta’s Focus

I have been reading Leo Babauta’s famous blog Zen Habits for a while. It’s all about finding simplicity in the daily chaos of our lives.

Focus is an eBook about how to get rid of distractions and foucs on the important things in life (and business). If you’re like most people, who are checking their e-mail, Twitter, Facebook, at the same time as you’re talking to your co-workers, then you should read it.

Number 3: Keith Bloemendaal’s Four Hour Sleep Week

I haven’t been reading Keith Bloemendaal’s blog Hot Blog Tips that long, just a few weeks. When I discovered it, I realized that I had found an awesome source of great information about blogging. The same day as I discovered his blog, I found his eBook and I read it in one sitting.

The 4 hour sleep week is all about the sacrificies we have to make in order to be successful. It’s never about earning money by working only a few hours a week, it’s usually the opposite. He explains what he had to do in order to become successful, and he has interviewed several famous people who describes their sacrifises as well.
