Lessig, Lawrence: The Future of Ideas. v1. 18 January 2008
I've been trying to read the various incarnations of this Creative Commons-licensed ebook for a couple of days, and got tired of fighting bad PDF conversions, and bad MOBI conversions (the Mobipocket version on Munsey's has the entire body of text underlined).
I downloaded the MS Lit version, converted it to a text file, cleaned up the text, and then used BookDesigner 4.0 to re-convert it back to a Mobipocket-format book, fixing the table of contents somewhat and prettifying the contents.
I'm sure there's a table or two that need some formatting work, and the footnotes need 'fixing' so they actually work as expected on the Kindle. If you find a footnote you like, you'll have to go find it in the 'Notes' at the end of the book. If, as I read the book, I find these problems to be annoying, I'll fix them and re-post.
Thanks to Mr. Lessig for allowing the use of his ebook for free.

I'd love for someone to do this for Lessig's Code 2.0, as well. (If you ever feel so inclined.)

A trivial formatting issue, John - please note that we need a "space" after the colon following the author's name in order for the book to sort correctly in our "Library". I've corrected it for you on this post.
