If you are new to the book collecting game, or even if you are an experienced scout, you will find plenty of good information in Basbanes' new book. One aspect of this work that I appreciate (as a used & rare bookseller working in an open shop) is the equal importance that Basbanes places on "booking the heartland" and on utilizing internet resources, whereas a common opinion in recent years is to use the internet only. All in all, this is a very useful guide, with tips on book scouting, determining first editions, and many other aspects of book collecting that one has to learn in order to be successful. In my opinion, Basbanes has become one of the most eloquent and enjoyable authors of Books About Books.
