What's in there then? A review by Rob Rinder


“If complaining is an art form, Helen Dewdney is Rembrandt. This book is easy to follow, beautifully written and – above all – teaches us that complaining effectively doesn’t require rudeness or angry sharp elbows. Dewdney’s book is a brilliant reminder that being a successful complainer (or getting what you were entitled to in the first place) is simple to achieve and can even be fun. Her superb how-to guide isn’t for ‘complainers,’ it’s for anybody who has ever been a consumer and been let down – it’s for all of us.” Robert Rinder TV Judge, Barrister, presenter, columnist

“Helen Dewdney is a one woman consumer revolution. Accurate, clear, straightforward. This new how-to book should have firms that give poor service quaking in their boots.Rights are one thing, asserting them is quite another. Like Helen’s first book this sequel does, of course, do exactly what it says on the tin. It helps with that next step – this is my right, I know it is my right, now pay up.If How to Complain is the essential companion to your shopping then 101 Habits should be by your laptop whenever you think you have been treated badly by a retailer or a business you have dealt with. Breathe deeply.” Flex your fingers. And get complaining! Paul Lewis Financial journalist

“Helen’s book gets it spot on, and steers you away from all the complaining cul-de-sacs and coups de foudre. Before you pick up the phone or log in to Twitter – read it. A great result is probably closer than you think.” Matt Allwright Television presenter and journalist
