5.0 out of 5 stars To go junking, 10 Nov. 2011
This review is from: American Pickers Guide to Picking (History Channel) (Hardcover)
Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz are pickers and this is their book. If you are not familiar with their American TV show, this does not mean they pick crops; but they find the more unusual and rusted `antiques' that are lying in wait in people's homes, basements, attics, barns and junkyards. They get down and dirty and do not mind a bit of, or even a lot of rust and mud.
This is a revelation if you have not seen the show and an education too. If you are already a fan of the show you would probably enjoy reading of their adventures, even if you have seen them. They give tips on how to find treasures in trash.

Sometimes it is hard to tell what part of the country they are in and who exactly they are dealing with, even who is doing the narrating, but it is still interesting. They do jump from region to region within a few paragraphs on many occasions. There is a section of black and white pictures of them on their travels; but what is missing is an illustration of the flyer they leave with their sellers and on bulletin boards of what they want - that would have been enlightening.
This is still fascinating reading, even if it is a repeat of what you have seen; because of all the information on the collectable market today and even how it has changed and possibly where it is going, even the types they do not specialize in. The tips on buying and searching and the give and take of bargaining is of interest to all who have collections or know of someone who does.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: American Pickers Guide to Picking (History Channel) (Hardcover)
I watch this show all the time with my husband and decided to look at their website to see what I could purchase as a gift for him. I was so pleased they had this book as he is a great reader whereas if you go into similar shows websites they don't have a book version only dvds
