Blagging It cleverly combines humour with real-life blagging ideas, so that you pick up blagging tips, whilst being highly entertained. This book is thoroughly researched and user friendly. If you are fed up with 'rip-off Britain', this book is the antidote.
My girlfriend got me a copy of this book as she thinks I'm a bit of a wannabe 'Del-Boy'. After a brief flick through I found myself unable to put it down. Some of the 'blags' are really useful whilst others will having you chuckling to yourself and laughing out loud! I would highly recommend this book to anyone who has ever had to stand up on a crowded train or failed to get that upgrade on the plane. It's a must read and a perfect gift for that 'blagger' that you all know!
When I bought this I thought I was buying a book on how to get the edge on haggling in everyday dealings. What I got was a book of laughs and wisecracks. I can say with confidence you'll miss nothing if you don't buy this book. Where are these 5star reviews coming from? If you want a tummy tickler, then buy this. Otherwise you won't learn anything..
This is a book that is neither here nor there. The authors don't seem to be able to determine whether the tips included here should be humorous or serious and subsequently fail in both attempts. The proper tips (e.g. saving money on flight tickets by becoming a courier) sound helpful, but often aren't: In this day and age of low cost airlines most routes already have cheaper routes for regular flights than what you get when you travel as a courier. The humorous tips on the other hand (e.g. swap your in-tray for your out-tray at work to blag that you're a real busy worker) frankly aren't that funny. Bit of a hybrid of a book that kinda fails on both levels. A fast, but not very memorable read.
