More About the Author
When I was 12 years old I was a professional magician and that was the start of a lifetime of taking a different path than most.
I have been a serial entrepreneur since then and at the age of 51 I have not had a real job most of my life. An entrepreneur friend of mine used to say " A job is just a temporary inconvenience in between entrepreneurial ventures."
There were times where a business was profitable, but I was working with a partner that was unethical or some other kind of situation occurred that did not fit my morals and ethics. I have just walked away and started at zero more times than I would care to admit. There were some hard times and it was frustrating and painful.
What carried me through those times was knowing that I stood up for what was right. I proved many times my morals and ethical values are not for sale at any price. I'm just a regular guy like everyone else. I just try and do the right thing. I was raised by parents that simply taught me right from wrong.
Cheap Holidays is my first book and it is a passionate attempt to teach consumers who take vacations how to get much more and pay much less. It is controversial and provocative because I expose some very popular sources people use when taking holidays or vacations and how they are ripping consumers off. The point of the book is to expose what you have been doing and then share the secret that will protect you as a consumer from wasting all that money ever again.
There are more books to come and they are all aimed at educating consumers on easy ways to get more and spend less.

This book is about a 25 minute read. The first half gives you some decent background information on how timeshares and vacation resorts work.
The second half of the book is a sales job to buy their service from their website.
Get it while it is free someday, but I don't think you should have to pay for a sales pitch.
Anthony Wessel (reviewer at the Kindle Book review) and founder of DigitalBookToday.com
Unfortunately, just as some other reviewers have suggested, this book is really just a thinly-veiled sales pitch for a business in which the author (a term I used loosely in this context) almost certainly has a financial interest. After a rather long-winded section description of the holiday resort time-share business, Mr. Taylor finally gets around to revealing the "secret" he alludes to in earlier chapters. Here it is (sort of): he wants you to go to his own website to learn the secret. Dummy that I am, I actually checked it out, only to be greeted by the following message: "Sorry my blog has been hacked and all content is gone." Knowing what I know about blogging and the internet, I find this statement quite unbelievable.
Not surprisingly, below this message is a link to another site (the site to which Mr. Taylor has being leading you all along), and lo and behold, it's pitch for something called the "Primo Vacation Club." So there's your big secret. The whole thing smells like the backside of a baboon -- and not one of those cute baby baboons you see featured on YouTube, but one of those big, snarling, nasty, red-bottomed brutes that like to fling feces.

If you consider reading this, PLEASE use good judgement and Buyer Beware.
As mentioned in several other reviews, this "book" is simply a sales pitch for an MLM travel club (which is ironic since the premise of Mr. Taylor's book is how MLM Travel Clubs are a rip-off since you can get the same thing cheaper on your own) called Primo Vacations Club. Throughout this book, Mr. Taylor also says his "secret" to extremely discounted travel is going straight to the "main source" for all timeshare liquidations, which he claims is a company called Hemisphere Travel Group, which has been "in business" for 28 years and owned by a Mr. Greg Pollack.
What Mr. Taylor fails to mention in his book is that Greg Pollack is also the president of Primo Vacations and countless numbers of other online travel scams. He also has more negative online reviews, scam reports, and rip-off claims than you can shake a stick at.
I also visited Hemisphere Travel Group's website, which is a basic travel landing page that leads nowhere. Not a single link on the home page works, and there is no way to get more information. I also found a LinkedIn profile associated with Hemisphere Travel Group that has all of 6 followers and 2 lines in their profile. I highly doubt that a legitimate company who has been in business for 28 years and handles ALL of the liquidations for EVERY MAJOR timeshare travel agency in the world, as Mr. Taylor distinctly claims in his book, would have a LinkedIn profile with only 6 followers and a non-functional website.
I have received a lot of wonderful and valid information from free ebooks here on Amazon, but Mr. Taylor's book definitely does NOT fall in this category.
