5.0 out of 5 stars Judith Miller, the acceptable face of Dealing. 27 Aug 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book was given to me by a lady who advised me on matters of style and taste when I first started as a runner in low grade scrap, yet was always fascinated by the seeming discrepancy between the value of an item in it's component parts (usualy nil) and it's value as an object in the whole (often a three or even four figure sum). Whilst I would freely admit that Judith Millers little paperback is not the key to riches, it contains so many clues and helpful information that I have now read it and re read it over 100 times. Some of it is hard commercial fact (a good thing) some of it is simple homespun truth (a nice thing).
Except for one page on percentage profit calculations, where it wobbles a bit I can say without fear of contradiction that I now work full time in the antiques and collectables market, enjoy my work no end, have made some very secure friends and business relationship principly by following the advice and information in this charming little book. Providing you like hard work, long hours and a fair amount of risk, then this is the business for you and this is the book that will tell you why.
