    1. A book on pricing projects and software systems. Of course, because pricing is dependent on the business model, some business models are also introduced.Book can be useful to persons who are active in the design of software systems.


    2. A great little book about how to price your product, primarily software, but these guidelines can be used for any product.You can find the free e-book hereneildavidson/download/dontThe book is divided into 5 chapters:Chapter 1: Some - but not too much - EconomicsChapter 2: Pricing Psychology: What is your product worth?Chapter 3: Pricing PitfallsChapter 4: Advanced PricingChapter 5: What your price says about you (and how to change it)2.

    3. A very good book on pricing - of software, but you can use it for pricing other goods too.This book gives you a checklist of questions to ask yourself and find the answers to find the right price and the right pricing strategy -- which fits your business but your (potential) customers too.I recommend this reading to everyone who plans to sell something and is unsure about the pricing. Ask yourself the questions in this book and think about the answers.


    4. While it contained useful perspectives on software pricing, I felt that the brevity of the book took away more than it added. However, I did enjoy reading the author's insights on the console pricing wars, and feel that the discussion about enterprise vs. open source software applies quite aptly to the current situation that IDA Pro and radare2 find themselves in.



    5. (A note: I read the free eBook version of this guide)Exactly what the title says, a usefully short guide to software pricing. To be specific, you're NOT going to read this, close the cover, and write down the number you want on your invoice, which is what most people who read this (myself included) are probably after.Instead, this book is a self-encapsulated simple economic analysis of software pricing models. The reader gets a brief crash-course on microeconomics, demand curves, etc and then th [...]


    6. Don’t Just Roll your Dice is a short book on understanding and creating a pricing strategy for products your organization has created. This can by any product software or anything that you plan to sell. This power packed guide has five chapters that details into1. Basics of pricing2. Finding out what’s your product worth? in other words what is the right price for your products3. Pitfalls that one needs to avoid4. Various ways one can price their products and choosing the right strategy5. On [...]


    7. Although I have no idea why did I have an pdf of this book in my library, I learned way so much from this small handbook. It sheds the light of science into one of the most uncertain areas of software development. The knowledge doesn't limit itself to software pricing, but also highly applicable in many other fields. I did apply the knowledge into branding and attracting talents. I wrote a trilogy about that in my blog bit/Vx2P6V


    8. I started reading first the free eBook but on page 3, I realized how brilliant this little book (70 pages) is, so I got the printed version.Whatever you need to price, not only software, this fantastic book can help you.Chapter 1: Some - but not too much - EconomicsChapter 2: Pricing Psychology: What is your product worth?Chapter 3: Pricing PitfallsChapter 4: Advanced PricingChapter 5: What your price says about you (and how to change it)


    9. "A book on applied ideas to find out what really works in more effective human relations." Concise, and applicable to other products & services. I can guarantee you that it will shake up your thinking about fees and pricing. It will un-stick some old notions.


    10. Only 2 stars because is just a good recompilation of useful information, but I had already deduced most of it. I don't recommend this if you had taken economic courses, but if you are a complete noob this is perfect for you.


    11. Very good readProvides logical explanations behind various pricing strategies followed by examples and analyzes the pros and cons interesting small read to explore the science and art of pricing





    12. Genuinely both short and useful. Best quote: "if you adopt the freemium model without a sugar daddy, then beware." Covers pricing theory, economics, psychology and practical experience.


    13. Great. Short, to the point, taught me a lot and helped me sculp my pricing model for my startup with at least a little structure.


    14. Fairly helpful data points. Somewhat boring read and no nice graphics. Good resource to have though and I did share it with a company already. The product pricing checklist is worth it alone.



    15. Great insights into how to price products so as to derive the highest profit by hitting the sweet spot where numbers of sales intersect price correctly. Very practical advice.








    16. Excellent read.Interesting bit of trivia: In 1975, Intel's 8080 chip cost $360, by 1980, improved versions of the 8080 cost under $5.


    17. Not a bad little book, with some useful insights into the subject. I would have liked to have seen more case studies but I've yet to find a better book on this niche topic.



    18. A must read if you are or will be pricing anything. Primarily focused on software, but many of the ideas will translate to other markets.
