Damiano Cappellari of Verona Italy writes:
I've written a new book about numismatics... Emozioni Numismatiche or Nummophilo's Defense.
I'd like to translate my book into English, but, as you see, I need a hand...!
Can you help me?
I used the Google Translate tool to do a first-order translation of the publisher's web page content into English. But that didn't work so well. Thankfully, Martin Purdy came to our rescue. His translation follows.

Abstract: “After so many books that focus almost entirely on coins, here at last is a work that focuses on the collector, the student and the numismatic enthusiast. After a lifetime spent among numismatists (shortly after being born I was taken in hand by a numismatist – my father), I have come to believe that the nature and perhaps also the beauty of our world lie in the very difficulty of fitting it into a pattern, in the sense that I have known a vast number of coin collectors, some of whom have become “coin students” and in some cases even “coin addicts”. Likewise, I know many coin students who are also coin collectors. The magnetic field that causes these transformations, some of them quite sudden, is born of the coins themselves and the powerful force of gravity that they exert.”
