Upcoming Consumer Rights Book

For the past two years, Dean has been writing what he considers to be the most comprehensive consumer rights book ever to hit the bookshelves.

The book has been inspired by the thousands of questions and requests for advice Dean has received from listeners of his radio show (the LBC Consumer Hour) and readers of his weekly newspaper columns.

Dean’s philosophy is you can navigate and effectively deal with any legal dispute or situation if you:

  • Know the law and therefore your rights and obligations;
  • Understand how the law is applied in different situations;
  • Are aware of the common fob offs used by traders;
  • Have relevant template letters to hand; and
  • Know what routes of redress or remedies are available.
