Don't get ripped off, read THE CHECKOUT, from the team behind ABC's top-rating show. ABC TV's THE CHECKOUT has managed to delight and inform consumers while challenging and infuriating big business. Keeping the same mix of irreverence and information as the top-rating ABC show, THE CHECKOUT is a fabulously funny read that also gives readers the knowledge and tools they can use in everyday consumer interactions. Featuring illustrations, photographs, break-out boxes and heaps of incredibly useful (and mind-boggling) information and observations, there are sections on: , *How To Return This Book: a look at consumer rights when it comes to returning items using the purchase of the book as a case study , *Do This Right Now: Consumer advice that can save readers money instantly , *The Checklist: simple, one-page checklists of things consumers need to be aware of before making certain transaction (eg buying car insurance) , *Product versus Packshot , *Guilty Mum , *Signs of the Times , *Loving Pet Owner , *First World Problems And more! THE CHECKOUT is a no-holds-barred, irreverent and entertaining approach to explaining and exposing the ways that all of us are being ripped off. You can't afford not to read this book!
