New Reader Review of Autograph Hell

I always appreciate receiving letters from readers. And it's a great way to start the new year!
Here's the newest customer review for Autograph Hell: The Truth About Collecting
"While I consider myself a fairly knowledgeable and savvy autograph collector, I still learned a great deal from this book, most especially the section on authenticators. I found Mr. Irion’s own story fascinating, as well as the history of collecting and forgers. His writing style is crystal clear, flowing, and extremely entertaining. I would strongly suggest that ANYBODY who has an autograph collection they are contemplating selling, a collector new to the hobby or, most importantly, those who are considering purchasing autographs off the internet to read this book. It will save you a lot of time and heartache. To quote the author 'Knowledge is power'." -- Denis St. Laurent
