I strongly recomend Michael Nadeaus book.
(Ups. I just see he put parts of the mail I sent ...)
Anyway. The book is by far the best I've seen. There
are always some points to argue, but I couldn't find
some real wrongs, and I would have a hard time to come
up with something better (as much as to recognize this
hurts my ego). The named prices are as always disputable,
and a bit on the high side in my opinion, but takeing
Lucky eBay sales into account valid. As always, a price
is what a seller and buyer agrees on, not what's listed
in a book. Considering this they are helpfull as a rough
gudeline to reduce overboarding expectations.
