American Pickers Guide to Picking by Libby Callaway, Mike Wolfe, Frank Fritz, Danielle Colby , 209 pages, read by Tammy, on 01/05/2012

American Pickers Guide to PickingMike Wolfe and Frank Fritz of the American Pickers TV program on History Channel share their experiences traveling across America looking for hidden treasures. These aren’t fine antiques but anything unusual or car or bike related. Sometimes they find just a tail light off an old car but it’s something someone restoring a car would be excited to find. They view part of the job as restoring old things back to useful objects or as items that will be displayed and enjoyed rather than rusting away in an old barn.

The book offers helpful hints and lots of things to consider before you start out “picking” yourself and what it would take to do it professionally. What I enjoyed most where the personal experiences Mike and Frank share in the book.
