If you are a coin collector, you probably have friends or family who think that your passion is a little odd or perhaps even a tiny bit crazy. You may even agree with them to some extent.
Why do we collect? Yes, we can trot out the stock answers: I love history, it's an investment, it's just a hobby to fill time. But is there more?
That's what this book explores: the different sorts of collectors, the reasons for collecting, the cycles, the rewards and the disappointments. The author writes well and although there really is little about numismatics per se, I think most collectors would enjoy this.
