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.

- 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 Problem
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!
