Whaley and Nehf's Consumer Law, Ninth Edition is a concise, clear, and accessible problem-oriented casebook that takes students through the main issues of consumer law: deceptive practices, product quality, and consumer credit. The book employs a popular problems approach—enjoyed by professors and students for interesting fact patterns—which illustrates relevant issues and their resolution and helps put consumer law statutes and regulations into context. It covers the Federal Interstate Land Sales Full Disclosure Act (regulating sale of vacation home land—not mentioned in any other book on this topic), and includes "Quotes for the Attorney’s Arsenal" (statements from famous cases eloquently encapsulate specific points).
