    Disappointing is just about right

    Although, this book had the color photos and (some) of the narrative consistent with Millers' wealth of books,this book does NOT add ANYTHING to her books already on sale. In fact, the mismash of subject matter and flighty summaries on buy, keep, or sell led this reader to have no more knowledge about the subject, than when I started. The summaries were almost laughable. The book takes on genres like 'Dolls' and 'Toys' and covers each in a two (2) page spread. 'Toys' highlights the tired tins & moves to Corgi/Dinky (uughh, they ALL DO) The pics need to be put away. The perfect Corgi boxes, I believe, do not reflect the needs of the audience to whom this book is directed. The title is directed to those who seek advice on their antiques and collectibles. The advise is pure generality. It reads 'slapped together to make a fast buck' on an audience clammoring for more knowledge. This is a far cry from the quality I expect from the author.
