More About the Author

David Volk is a hell of a nice guy who has never been mistaken for meatloaf. While there are those who claim that he was born and raised in Southwest Florida, he continues to maintain that he was raised by wolves outside Zagreb. He knows that there are nay-sayers who say there are no wolves in Zagreb, but who are you going to believe?

Volk is the author of "The Tribe Has Spoken: Life Lessons From Reality Television," "The Cheap Bastard's Guide to Seattle" and the updated edition of the guidebook, which he modestly refers to as "Cheap Bastard II: Revenge of the Bastards," due out in November 2013. He's not sure why, but he hears rumors that the book could actually be available as early as October 2013.

This book is a great reference guide of Seattle bargains, for natives and visitors alike. The topics are well organized, and the listings are concise and readable. Even though I pride myself on knowing about local bargains, this book is full of hidden gems such as cheap theater/movie tickets and low-cost massages. As an added bonus, David Volk's writing is not only informative but quite funny. This is a bargain, no matter what you pay!

Whether you're visiting Seattle as a tourist or living here as a resident this book is for everyone. I moved to Seattle nine months ago after having come here for vacation the year before. I'm still learning my way around the city and now with this book can do more for less money. Food, drink, fun....it's all in here.

Save your pennies and don't buy this book - just use the magic of the interwebz to find out the same stuff: Yelp, Craiglist, friends, museum websites, freecycle. By the time I got the book it was already outdated. And now I'm out, like, 5 bucks.

It is not a tourist guide but since we are going to spend the summer in Seattle it was just what we were looking for! Strongly recommend it. Full of great ideas.
