How do I return a book?
Should you change your mind about your order, Blackwell operates a 'no questions asked' returns policy providing you return your book within 14 working days of the delivery of your order. This policy is in accordance with the Consumer Contracts Regulations. A full refund will be given for the returned items and the original postage costs, but any postage costs incurred when returning your items will be at your own cost.
This policy does not extend to any perishable items, sealed audio, video recording or computer software, which are subject to our standard returns policy (see below).
