Free Business Books for Your Kindle

Last Updated Feb 17, 2011 3:38 PM EST

Like to read? Like to read about how to get better at marketing, presentations, project management, and other business-boosting topics? You should: books can give you expert insight and advice you simply can't get elsewhere.

For what promises to be a limited time, Amazon is offering five free business e-books. They're all Kindle Store titles, meaning you need either a Kindle reader or any device that can run a Kindle app (including Android, BlackBerry, iPhone/iPod/iPad, PCs, and Macs).

What's the catch? There isn't one -- just download the titles that interest you and add them to your reading list. Here's the rundown:

"Best Practices for Persuasive Presentations" -- This is actually a collection of three separate guides, including the amusing titled "So What? How to Communicate What Really Matters to Your Audience."

"Instant MBA" -- Don't confuse this with a study guide. Instead, the book teaches you the best of "MBA thinking," all with the idea of accelerating career advancement.

"The Lazy Project Manager" -- A humorous take on project management and how managers can and should strive to be "lazy" by being intelligent about organizing and running their projects.

"Leading at a Higher Level" -- Renowned management guru Ken Blanchard offers his take on becoming a better leader, serving your customers at a "higher level," and coaching to boost performance at every level.

"Marketing in the Moment" -- Published just eight months ago, this guide for business owners explains how to choose from the growing array of "new marketing" options (Tumblr, Ustream, etc.) and make them work to their fullest potential.

In case you're wondering, each of these books is rated at least four stars out of five, and most of them normally cost around $20. The total value is well over $100.

Again, I'm not sure how long Amazon will be offering these titles for free -- might be a week, might be a day -- so if you're interested, grab 'em up quick.
