The Flat World Knowledge Textbooks - Free E-Textbooks for College Students

I know the economy is not the best and I strongly believe professors should provide students with affordable textbook options. I am strongly considering the e-textbooks from this website ( for some classes that I will teach in the fall semester. Personally, I think this option might be appropriate for a few of the courses I teach (Business and Professional Speaking and Organizational Communication) - I am interested to see what the students think about the e-book option, because some of my students do not have a laptop computer and/or do not embrace new technological developments.

I know that I will supplement these e-textbooks with scholarly articles and engaging activities, but overall I think it is a good option. In addition, I think that this website may be a good outlet for some supplemental books that I plan to write in the near future.
