Deep down, everyone knows that the best things in life are free – but it’s easy to forget in a world of constant advertising and competitive consumerism. In this witty and inspiring book, Alex Free reminds us how many of the really important things in life can be done without spending anything. His suggestions range from things that we all know we should do but never seem to get around to (‘Contact a friend you haven’t spoken to for ages’) to the less obvious (‘Ask a child for advice’ or ‘Learn a brilliant magic trick’).
Never patronising, always entertaining and full of surprising tidbits of advice and information, The Free Way is a storehouse of wit and wisdom and truly a book for our times.
Alex Free is the pseudonym of a well-known journalist and author of fiction and non-fiction. Largely of necessity, he has spent many years pondering how to be happy without spending money.
