Who knew!! This well researched book narrates the story of a really interesting thief--who takes valuable books from libraries and dealers all over the US, just for the adrenalin rush and feeling of superiority he gets from owning a premier collection. The efforts of those who tracked him down and the author's adventures in ferreting out the facts of the story are interesting, but I look on this obsessive thief with a lot less sympathy than she does.
