Paula Giliker, University of Bristol, UK
'Howells, Twigg-Flesner and Wilhelmsson show why EU consumer law should focus less on maximum harmonisation, why a high level of consumer protection enhances EU businesses' international competitiveness, and why the `average consumer' benchmark should take the lessons of behavioural economics to heart. A must-read for consumer and business lawyers alike!'
Marco B.M. Loos, University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands
'A must-read that provides a clear presentation of EU consumer law - understanding full harmonisation becomes intuitive when reading the chapter on unfair commercial practices, and explains why it often has not met consumers and businesses' expectations and how it could. A book every consumer law scholar would have liked to write.'
Elise Poillot, Consumer Law Clinic, University of Luxembourg
