Some wrote to him praising the accurate background of the book—Pook spent ten happy years in the game of polishing-rags to riches—albeit bemoaning certain TV programmes which have madethe customers too knowledgeable for comfort.Pook lets us share in the thrills and nightmares of acquiring one’s first shop, andopening it to see if the public will actually pay money for the debris of the past.Readers will delight in his advice about how to buy antiques, both from the auction sales and privately, and how he finally solved that unique paradox of the trade—“Any fool can sell it, but it takes a smart operator to buy it.”We meet the whole range of customers familiar to all dealers, from the overseas bargain-hunter to the eccentric lady who has an obsession for filling her house with junk—not forgetting the perils of purchasing stock which is still very much on HP.

Inthis connection Pook employs the beautiful Olga as a kind of financial bloodhound.For the dealer and layman alike Pook in Business is a treasure house of hilariousanecdotes which you will want to read time and again—and maybe give you anunexpected interest in attics, cellars and dustbins.
