    HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! I loved it! I learned lots too!

    GREAT BOOK! Fun to read, packed with info, easy to use and understand, I learned a lot about appraising my own stuff and how to buy in the future. All about antiques, collectibles, heirlooms. WHAT A GREAT FIND! I saved hundreds from what I learned. I especially liked the end where there's all kinds of sites where I can research my collection. Get it!
