I train endurance riding which means long hours in the saddle, mainly at a brisk walk. Often I take the opportunity of so much uninterupted time listen to an ebook or a podcast. Yesterday I downloaded Chris Andersons Free: The Future of a Radical Price and found him a wonderfully entertaining companion. The book has received criticism for being heavily wikipedia researched and maybe it shows in the print version but hardly in the audio version. Chris reads it well and I find myself chuckling frequently. He entertains and is thought-provoking. Highly recommended!
