“The antiques business is doomed. The trade is filled with such talk. Wayne Jordan qualifies the prediction: some antiques businesses are doomed, but others can survive. He shows how in this rigorous and bracing book, which is based on his columns for Antique Trader. In place of the usual gloom and self-pity, Jordan offers analysis and facts. Jordan draws on his business experience (including many years in the antiques trade) to explain certain trends. The lack of young collectors, for example, is interpreted through the prism of generational differences. Other information is resolutely practical. “How to be the Antiques Dealer who Knows Something about Art” is a useful breakdown of fine-arts information for the all-around shop owner.” A.G.
