Entertaining and insightful, Collecting Contemporary, by Adam Lindeman is the book you should buy to get in tune with how the international art market works. Made entirely of interviews and divided in chapters dedicated to the main actors in play (the Dealer, the Consultant, the Curator, the Critic) the book is full of updated advice for new collectors or for whoever is interested in contemporary art.
