Krause Publications announced a new book this week.
Krause Publications, a worldwide leader in coin and paper money books, magazines, online products and events, has released a new book that takes a fun look into the minds of collectors -- One Coin is Never Enough: Why and How We Collect.
In One Coin is Never Enough, author Dr. Michael S. Shutty, Jr., explores the act of coin collecting from every angle and provides guidance on how to get started and enjoy this great hobby. He contends that coin collecting is nothing less than a creative endeavor that allows collectors to express themselves in unique ways by forming meaningful collections.
In particular, strategies for enhancing the excitement of the hunt and the sweet taste of acquisition are examined while challenging the reader to appreciate, and embrace, the deeper motivations that urge us to seek out that special coin.

I haven't seen the book yet, but I'm curious to read the author's thesis. We all have our own personal reasons for collecting. Readers - what got you started in collecting?
