Abstract:

We buy and sell things almost every day of our lives, whether paying our electric bills, going out to lunch, or finally trading in that old car. But most of us don't really know what our legal rights and obligations are when it comes to buying and selling. Now, using familiar examples and careful, step-by-step explanations, The American Bar Association Guide to Consumer Law explains exactly what we need to know. Readers will find a wealth of information about warranties.

Credit cards, the cancellation of unfair contracts, and even such cyberspace issues as whether software can be lawfully copied. Like all of our ABA books, the answers are in plain English - not legalese - and since the ABA's top lawyers review each book, you know that the information is top-notch and reliable.
