Great read, interesting insights into how to obtain free stuff, 27 July 2012
Ill admit when I first saw the title of this book I was slightly skeptical about the concept of getting stuff for free. This is because most the free stuff or freebies (on the web at least) tend to be small, low value items such as mouse mats, pens or a food sample of some sort. If you search "free stuff" online these are the kinds of items that you will invariably be offered on free stuff websites.
However Mike's book shows that you can get big ticket and more desirable stuff for free as well, you just have to put more effort in and think about how to get a company to donate to you one of their products. The author claims he got his entire Christmas paid for one year, including presents which is quite incredible when you think about it. The book outlines various tactics for getting stuff for free some of which are more complex than others. Depending on the amount of effort you want to put in, it seems there really is no limit to what you can get. One of things I like about the book is that it outlines the pitfalls of getting free stuff mentioning lots of things you should avoid, showing that the author really does not want you to make the same mistakes he has.
Overall a fascinating read, if you have got the time and inclination to get stuff for free then this is an invaluable "how to" guide.
