This is book is considered a staple to the barware collector. The book reads into his enthusiam for collecting barware as well as his extensive knowledge and research on the subject. No other book can compare. There are just as many georgeous pictures as interesting text. After reading this book cover to cover you will use it frequently as a reference guide so keep this one within easy reach.

After reading this book, I got the three best shakers in my collection at really low prices. Thanks, Steve, for sharing your shaker knowledge and collecting secrets.

Mr. Visakay's book combines characterics unfound in other pricing and information guides: it provides insight into the author in a charming way while providing highly accurate information. Although I am a knowledable collector, I read the book cover to cover. Stephen Visakay is clearly the definitive source. I am an international collector buying in the US, London and Paris. Without a doubt this book has saved me a fortunue. Given that so few cocktail shakers were ever marked, a visual guide as presented in the book is critical. Understanding the rarity a item is the key to successful collecting. Thank you Stephen!
