Top critical review
on 26 September 2012
Although to be honest I doubt I'll ever be able to adopt a persona to blag as per Mike's advice, I don't think I have the brass neck :-) I was very interested to hear how he, and others like him, made it work.
Mike is a very likeable and honest individual and he made his reviews factual, funny and interesting. Having managed to blag such a wide variety of items, unlike some other reviewers, I didn't feel the content to be repetitive and I enjoyed reading about some products I hadn't heard of before.
The hints and advice that Mike give all make perfect sense however you'll see from his book that if you're expecting a quick way to get free items by sending out a million emails and hoping for the best then you'll be mistaken, believe it or not a great deal of work was put in by Mike to start being sent some quality blags, even some of the really cheap freebies required quite a lot of ground work!
The old saying is true, really you don't get anything in life for free. In Mike's case his cost was time and effort rather than monetary so I suppose this comes as close as you can get!!
