"All together, there is relatively little material on the car itself and one gets the impression that it's assembled in not too sturdy a fashion, but then the Nader name and consumer-directed good intentions assure a certain market where it will do well."
With the help of (i.e. based on) letters from 4000 irate owners of a shiny new buggy which is bugged, the authors (Mr. Nader, one of his associates and a lawyer) have itemized what a car should have, raised taillights, or be, white or yellow rather than red or black. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

Released: Jan. 1, 1972

"Be that as it may, the case data collected from the bilked (over 500 active and retired workers responded to a pension questionnaire), along with complementary information from benefit system authorities and government sources, provide another of those Naderesque true stories of quacksalvers practicing their venality in high financial places."
