It was overall a light read and opened my eyes to the world of Birkins. Who knew how popular these handbags were or how much people were willing to pay for them!?! It was great to delve in to the world of high fashion, but I think I wanted a little more. With Michael just leaving the business at the end, I felt like there was no closure. Also, the formula was getting old in the story, as I got towards the end. Still...I'd recommend it for anyone in love with collectibles and fashion.

I wonder how many people can really succeed at what Michael has done from his Ebay biz and travel the world? Maybe it's time to contemplate a change in careers...would love to work from home and set my own schedule!"
