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 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!
