This popular casebook is highly regarded for its:

  • effective use of the problem approach, with straightforward and practical problems illustrating the relevant issues and their resolution and putting the consumer law statutes and regulations in context
  • distinguished authorship from Douglas J. Whaley, who is nationally recognized for his ability to clarify complex topics and widely regarded as the master of the problem approach
  • clear and lucid writing style
  • thorough treatment of all aspects of consumer law; not just consumer credit, but also deceptive practices and product quality issues
  • unique coverage of the Federal Interstate Land Sales Full Disclosure Act regulating sale of vacation land
  • skillful use of Quotes for the Attorney's Arsenal, statements from famous cases which eloquently encapsulate specific points
  • concise, efficient, and effective format that allows the casebook to remain at a manageable length
  • outstanding Teacher's Manual that provides sample syllabi, answers all the problems in the text, and discusses the best ways to teach various topics

    Look for new material in the Fourth Edition on:

  • the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act (the \-FACT\- act), the new federal statute signed into law last year by President Bush, which imposes new duties on credit reporting agencies and those who use them and protects against identity theft problems
  • the new Bankruptcy Act recently enacted by Congress after eight years of decisionmaking
