Whitman also has a new book on the hot topic of Gold. Below is their web site description and a mini-review by Mike Marotta.
Take a personal guided tour with two of America's best-known gold specialists. Jeff Garrett and Q. David Bowers show you how to sell your gold without losing your shirt; how to make smart decisions when you buy gold; the best kinds of gold to invest in; traps and pitfalls to avoid; how to grade collectible gold coins; and much more. This interactive book includes handy pullouts with valuable insider information-take them with you when you buy or sell! Bullion value charts, coinage specifications, weight conversion tables, and much more. 120 Pages, Full Color, Hardcover, In Library-Quality Slipcase.
Michael E. Marotta provided this mini-review, with a promise of a more detailed look at the book later:
Whitman opens a new frontier with the presentation format of "Gold: Everything You Need to Know to Buy and Sell Today" by Jeff Garrett and Q. David Bowers (Foreword by Kenneth Bressett), 120 pages, $12.95. First of all, the page count is understated because the book includes ten pockets with tipped in ephemera, including (among very much else) a facsimile of Executive Order 6102.
The book is replete with charts, graphs, and tables of extracted data compiled for easy reference. Best of all, this is a book that is likely to decrease in value as the ephemera is damaged and lost.
Therefore, anyone who holds a pristine copy in 100 years will be hoarding a mint.
