Insubordinate added to free Seth Godin ebooks for download

Seth Godin

On Tuesday I added Brainwashed by Seth Godin to the “All of Seth Godin’s Free ebooks in one place” list that I have been keeping up on this site. That led me to start poking around and start looking to see if maybe there were some others I might have missed.

Yes, yes I did.

Insubordinate (258) is a free ebook related to Seth’s latest book Linchpin: Are You Indispensable? It’s a quick read packed with great insight into the heart of Linchpin. Give it a read and then if you like, come back here and leave a review of it in the comments sectio below.

Enjoy and thanks for reading!

p.s. It looks like Seth has indeed finally compiled a list of free downloads on his Squidoo page, so if you’d like to check that out for any additional, non ebook related downloads I haven’t added to my list, just click the link above.

New Seth Godin ebook “Brainwashed” added to free download list

Brainwashed Seth Godin Free Download

As of this morning Brainwashed (653) by Seth Godin has been added to the “All of Seth Godin’s Free ebooks in one place” list that I have been keeping for over a year. This one was brought to my attention by a reader, so huge thanks to Josh R from Rocky Mountain Fly Fisher.

If you haven’t already read it, Brainwashed is basically about things we’re conditioned to do from a young age, how they are hurting us, and how to fix them. Over the last few years it seems like Seth has been moving from marketing to self help, and this ebook doesn’t break that patter.

As usual, it’s a great read. It won’t take very long, but has some great lessons to teach us. Give it a download (right click & save link as), give it a read, and let me know what you think.

Thanks for reading,
Josh “Shua” Peters

I am writing a new free book and would like your help (prize inside)

The book is going to be called “Twitter Says” and I’m not going to be writing it so much as compiling it. For the next 2 months I’m going to be asking various questions via Twitter about all kinds of subjects. I’ll be using the hastag #TwitterSays so you can follow along if you’d like. It should be a very interesting little book that is filled with all sorts of crazy answers and hopefully even some good advice.

What I need from you
Here’s what I would like from you. It’s pretty simple actually. Answer the question and RT the question. Then, once the book is finished, I’d like you to please spread the book around through your own networks. That’s it.

What you get
At the end of the book I’ll have a place where I’ll have a list of all the Twitter users who helped out and contributed. This book will be spread out through networks and I’ll be placing it in prominent spots to get spread around so hopefully it will be something that will help you also find some new, good quality, followers.

Not only will I include you in the “Thanks / Should Follow List” at the  end of the book, but everytime you answer AND everytime you RT a question you will be entered into a drawing to win one of these prizes:

1. A signed copy of TwittFaced

2.Twitter Revolution and a signed copy of TwittFaced

3. Grand prize = a copy of Trust Agents, Crush It, Marketing in the Groundswell, and a signed copy of TwittFaced!

So you get some recognition AND be entered to win some pretty sweet books. All for about 60 seconds of your time. Not too shabby ‘eh?

Thanks for reading, and thank for helping,

UPDATE: There are even more prizes and info found on the TwitterSays page of my blog

All of Seth Godin’s Free ebooks in one place

You read that right, I’ve compiled all of Seth Godin’s free ebooks in one big awesome list. Seth Godin is a fantastic source of  constant information and wisdom. His blog is incredibly insightful and he produces books and ebooks left and right. The one thing he hasn’t done though is collect his free stuff in one spot.

I was looking through my ebook collection the other day and noticed I had a ton of his ebooks, but didn’t know if I had all of them so I went to his site and was stunned to discover he didn’t have a list of all his free ebooks to download (or at least I didn’t see it). I spent the next hour searching his site for free ebooks and found a couple I didn’t have. After a successful round of scavenging I decided to share my newly acquired treasure with you.

Some of these ebooks are a couple years old and a few things in them are outdated but the important parts, the ideas, are still very valid. You probably already know this, but to download them right click on the link, choose “Save As” or “Save Link As”. Give ‘em a look and if I missed any that you know of please let me know (send me the link) and I’ll add them to list.

Bonus links!
While I was putting together I came across 2 articles (1 new, 1 not so new) that really pulled this together. The first is from the man him self Seth Godin about why YOU should write a free ebook. I can speak from experience that good things can come from writing a free ebook, it’s how I got the book deal for TwittFaced.

This second link is a beautiful follow up to the why, it’s the how. Darren Rowse has put together a wonderful guide;  13 Steps to Write and Publish a Free Ebook in 13 Hours.

I hope this whole post is a source of inspiration and a great resource of wisdom and information to you and anyone you share it with.
