Is it a completely comprehensive guide listing every single pin out there? No. There are some things that I find need to be updated (there's no "Pin Stroller" listed at Animal Kingdom, but I know there's one there) but that could easily be due to things changing in due course at WDW. I appreciate a little humor mixed in with things, and I loved reading the author's comments, for example where they describe an exact timeline of waiting in line for a limited release pin. I did not find much of the information to be uncommon knowledge, those who are already "in" to pin trading are probably already aware of it, but it's a GREAT starting point for newbies. As less of a newbie, what I liked the most were the check lists in the back of the book! Yes, you can get the lists online or on smart phones, or PDF files, but not so deep down, I'm a nerdy bookworm, and there's just something very satisfying about taking a pencil and checking something off physically in the book. I wish I'd gotten a version with color photos, I didn't realize prior to purchasing that there was one available, but I still enjoy this book! It's not overly huge and heavy, could be tossed in a tote or backpack for travel too!
I admit it, I am a Disney pin addict. I don't know why, but I have faced the fact that I have a pin problem. That being said, I bought this book to help feed my addiction. As an amature pin trader, this book had very helpful information about where to find pins, the etiquette in trading, and the different types of pins for trading. What I found most helpful were the pictures of many of the pins out there for trading. Although it cannot show all of the pins (there are way too many) it was helpful in showing the different sets of pins, so I would know what to look for to complete the sets I have. The one complaint I have about this book is the quality of the pin pictures. They were a little fuzzy. For any amature Disney pin fanatic or for anyone who is just interested in learning more about Disney pin trading, I recommend this book.[...]
My son and I eagerly awaited this book. When we got it it took us an hour or so collectively to go through it. We had fun. Last year when we went to Disney we got involved in pin trading. We spent a pretty penny and I am glad we found this book. We have considered the options and the ways to avoid scrappers. Thank you so much for this little book. My son will most likely carry it around with him on our trip this fall.
I have no complaint about the quality and usefulness of the text of this book, and I did not expect an "art book," but the photographic reproductions of pins is so poor that some of them appear as little more than smudges. Other reviewers have, in fact, mentioned this flaw in passing, but I was unprepared for how much it impairs the book's utility.
