I enjoyed reading this well-written and unusual book.
The Internet is awash with 'make money online' systems, so it's good to see a guide that focuses on bargaining to obtain goods and services instead.
I like the way that Mike emphasises the 'partnership' aspect in his technique. The approach he advocates does not involve trying to 'trick' or defraud businesses, but rather seeking out mutually beneficial ways you can work with them. In exchange for giving you a free product or service, for example, a company might receive free publicity and/or valuable consumer feedback.
In my view this guide would be especially relevant to someone with an expensive hobby or interest, who would welcome some 'help in kind' to defray their costs (as well as gaining access to all the latest kit, perhaps even before it is officially released). However, I'm sure that most people could benefit from applying the techniques set out in the book.
You don't need to be especially pushy, either. Mike sets out a wide range of approaches, and for the most part they don't require 'the gift of the gab' or even any particular self-confidence. I did, however, like the idea of creating a 'persona' for some of the more outward-facing methods, a technique Mike discusses from page 28 onward.
At its current low price, Free Stuff Everyday is a real bargain. You would only need to 'blag' a single item using any of the (many) approaches Mike suggests to be well in profit.
Highly recommended for anyone looking to make their salary last a little longer every month!
