"Comprehensively guides lawyers through the entire spectrum of class action litigation. ... Invaluable, succinct resource for new and experienced class action practitioners."
—Herb Newberg,
Author, Newberg on Class Actions

"Indispensible for anyone involved, on any side, of any class action of any kind."
—Seth R. Lesser

"Almost every day, defense counsel asserts some reason why my class action supposedly can't proceed, and almost every time the Consumer Class Actions manual has a compilation of the authorities that rebut the argument. No one should bring consumer class actions who doesn't have this book on their shelf."
—Roger L. Mandel,
