You should rapidly learn to transform yourself, she tells us in no uncertain terms, into a tough customer.

The section on the decline in the fine art of customer service is sure to resonate with you as will the part that shows how well-meaning laws have failed to protect our interests.The onus is no less on us. The privilege of consumer rights comes with the duties of being a responsible consumer, she cautions us.
