I am happy to make a little news of my own on this blog. The Kindle edition of Creative Capital is now officially available.
Please click here to see the Amazon page where you can purchase the Kindle edition for $9.99. You can sample the beginning of the book for free says Amazon.
One big and obvious upside of the electronic edition of the book is that it’s much cheaper than the hardcover, which costs $23.10.
A small downside: we did not include the book’s photo insert. Why? Because I would have had to pay somewhere between $500 to $1,000 to purchase the rights to license the digital rights of some of the photos.
I have no idea how many copies of the Kindle edition have been sold but it looks like someone actually figured out a way to buy it. My Kindle ranking on Amazon is higher than the ranking for the hardcover edition of my book. Perhaps a few folks bought it after I made the initial announcement at the Stanford Global Technology Symposium. On Friday I moderated a panel on corporate venture capital with top execs from IBM, Google and Microsoft.
According to Amazon, Creative Capital and over 245,000 other books are available for Amazon Kindle. You can sample the beginning of the book for free according to Amazon.
