I live in Australia and I am 62 years old. I have some ideas that I want to 'action' them now. This book would be a great start

My favorite example of a product that differentiates based on design is Uber! Uber actually changed the way of ordering cabs with their creative thinking! 

I have read a part of this book and some interesting topics like speed up software, how to attract top technical talent and its amazing. Must have book and I really want to read this complete book but how can I get this for free? Competition is over and i missed the deadline too.
