Seems like Kevin doesn't want us to know about it either.

He says that he is going to tell you where and how to get free money, but instead he gives you information you can find on the internet for free.

If the book was written half as well as the infomercial, it would merit more than one star.

One of the biggest wastes of money that I have seen in a long while. The infomercial makes it seem as though the reader will be given direct information about specific grants and programs for "free money." Instead there is nothing more than a few websites named - all of which I have seen in the past. Shame, shame, shame on me - there IS NO SUCH THING as "Free Money." I do, however wish I had my $16.59 back for this useless book. Redundant, poorly written, and waaaaaaaaaaay too hyped.

I seen the infomercial and was really exited but the book turned out to be more of the commercial. In the book, he told a lot about society and joked around but there wasn't a lot of real information on how to get money. A lot of facts with a small amount of useful information. A few web addresses or phone numbers scattered here or there. The first bit of info, a web address, wasn't until page 27...

A lot of common since things too. When you need money, of COURSE you are going to check old savings bonds, you would probably NEVER forget money in an 'old' bank account and taxes season is one of the biggest events of the year. SOMEBODY is going to ask you if you filed your taxes yet, so it's kind of hard to forget about tax money.

Also, everybody already knows about the Pell Grant and everybody knows about buying foreclosure houses for next to nothing, fixing them up and then selling them for a profit. Everybody knows about eBay and everybody knows about craigslist. Of COURSE you would sell your car if you really needed the money and people sell their various collections every day. That is what Pawn Stars is all about...

Simply not enough information. Free money they don't want you to know about? Seems like Kevin doesn't want us to know about it either. LOL.

I usually don't write reviews but I felt that I had to warn people about Kevin Trudeau and his book. My dad surprised me and bought me this book along with Debt Cures hoping I could find some extra money for college. At the time I thought I had heard of Kevin Trudeau and I did some research on him and found out that he is just another con artist. I still read the books and I wasn't surprised at finding that I had wasted my time. If you are contemplating on whether or not to buy this book, you are just wasting your time doing that! DON'T BUY IT! He says that he is going to tell you where and how to get free money, but instead he gives you information you can find on the internet for free. The only reason this book is 245 pages is because he continually repeats himself. If you don't trust the negative reviews that you are reading about this book then I recommend that you buy this book off of Ebay. I found a seller on there that is selling this book and Debt Cures together as an ebook and is only $.99. So if you don't want to lose any money while trying to make money, I suggest that you don't buy this trash.

As I search the internet, I have seen many opinions about this book. They seem to be either Naysayers or Promoters. I'm writing this to curb that dynamic.
I'm an objective reviewer. I will share the facts and my experience in dealing with Kevin Trudeau's products, including Free Money. I will explain the PROS, the CONS as a basis for my final conclusion. Once you read this, you should be able to decide for yourself if this book is for you. This review assumes you've seen the infomercial or been exposed to some other sales pitch about this book.
Important Note: I have purchased Free Money. I'm in the process of reading it.
THE CONS:
When I was young, I had my Dad purchase Kevin's MEGA Speed Reading. It was 10 or 12 tapes of ineffective blubbering. It was a total waste of time and money. We sent back Mega Speed Reading and got our money back (less shipping).
Kevin does have a way of being extremely inflammatory in his commentary. Saying things like "THEY don't want you to know about." I do think his "They're all out to get me" routine is pure drama to interest you in what he's saying so he can sell more books and monthly newsletters. I wouldn't be surprised if all the naysayers weren't paid employees of Kevin to help keep the drama alive. If you read the negative reviews it appears to be the same style of writing and complaints under different screen names.
Yes, the information in his books can be found through other cheaper or free venues.
No, this is not the public service Kevin claims it to be.
THE PROS:
Conspiracy theories aside, I have noticed that the naysayers never say anything specific. "It's garbage!" and "Kevin's a con man!" and "Customer Service Stinks!" are the crux of their complaints.

If you don't want to take a chance buying it...get it from the library first and buy it later if the contents apply to you.

I am interested in free money. I need free money. If I could get a bunch of free money, the book would be worth the $25.99 cover price. I am so glad I checked this book out at the library instead of buying it. It is pure hype and fluff.

I can summarize the "strategies" in just a few words: check abandoned property websites, sell some of your unneeded or unwanted items, check for all your tax deductions, and apply for grants. The book gives some websites to aid in all these things, but most of the info could be gathered on-line.

Trudeau talks about some websites and services that will, for instance, let you search for abandoned property for a fee. However, he prefers the free sites which abound--you don't need to pay anyone to do this. I feel the same way about his book. Why would you pay for this book when you could gather most of the information from free sources elsewhere? He writes like a salesman and really hypes the info--which could have been boiled down to a newsletter or magazine article.

It is quite possible, even likely that many people who buy the book will find some abandoned property and be thrilled. Maybe some will be inspired to try E-bay or have a garage sale or shop around for better insurance or interest rates, etc. A rare few may apply for a government grant to fund their hobby--but I would be really surprised if any individual actually got money. I did use one of the strategies in the book and got some money. I filed my tax return and got a nice refund. Thank you so much Kevin!

These "strategies" are mostly common sense/common knowledge.
