Flat World Knowledge is a new company that offers professional-quality textbooks that are free to read online.  They summarize their business as follows:

We preserve the best of the old – books by leading experts, rigorously reviewed and developed to the highest standards. Then we flip it all on its head.

Our books are free online. We offer convenient, low-cost choices for students – softcovers for under $30, audio books and chapters, self-print options, and more. Our books are open for instructors to modify and make their own (for their own course – not for anybody else’s). Our books are the hub of a social learning network where students learn from the book and each other.

Flat World Knowledge. Because great minds are evenly distributed. Great textbooks are not. Until Now.

Currently, the site has textbooks in the categories of Accounting and Tax, Communications, Economics, Finance, General Business, Information Systems, Management, and Marketing.
