This book is basically about a Melbourne guy who joins up with a few websites where members offer their couch (or a spare bed or something) for strangers from around the world to sleep for free (although some do have ulterior motives for making money from the couchee). I've backpacked Europe but never couched around the world and I found it quite fascinating. I don't know that it's a cheaper option if like the author you feel uncomfortable not doing something like buying them dinner in return for their hospitality which I probably would as well. Brian Thacker stays on a number of "couches" on an around the world airline ticket journey in North America, South America, Asia and Europe. You'll learn a bit about each country he visits as well as a tip or two if you ever go there yourself. As I said a great easy to read sit back for half a day relax and read book.
