Synopsis:

Whether the object involved is a rare book, a baseball card, a work of art, or a teddy bear, all collectors share a similar undeniable compulsion for their hobby. But how and why do people collect? And what compels some collectors to go to such lengths--abandoning moral standards, legal obligations, even family responsibilities--to satisfy their emotional commitment to an object? Werner Muensterberger explores these questions plumbing the psychology behind the act of collecting profiling individual collectors and their habits, and looking at the cultural and historical patterns of collecting.


Review:

"Engaging...dramatic."

New York Times

Review:

"Fascinating...occasionally unsettling."

Wall Street Journal
