Book on Barter ? : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

Does anyone know of a book on barter. I would like to read one. I have my own opinions, but would like to hear what others think.

There are many books dedicated to the subject. I just went to and did a search on Barter and got 35 hits. Many of us are interested in this and hopefully someone who has read good ones will post on this thread. You can start there though. Many of the titles looked interesting.

If you are considering being in a barter business (good idea), consider the following:

Some guidelines are to have what others want, so you can trade, and also to have enough of what they want. They will preferably be things which are not easily made at home, are divisible into small units, have storage durability, and have easily recognizable value, even to a complete idiot. Hope this helps.
