Excellent history of Commodore

on 2/5/2014

I already owned the first version of this book. This update goes into much more depth and has several new interviews. It is very interesting to read the wonderful history of the best computer company. It is unfortunate that this book stops when the Amiga was just beginning it's life with Commodore. It is even more frustrating that the follow-up book with includes the Amiga's history may not ever be published.

Product Overview

Filled with first-hand accounts of ambition, greed, and inspired engineering, this history of the personal computer revolution takes readers inside the cutthroat world of Commodore. Before Apple, IBM, or Dell, Commodore was the first computer manufacturer to market its machines to the public, selling an estimated 22 million Commodore 64s. Those halcyon days were tumultuous, however, owing to the expectations and unsparing tactics of founder Jack Tramiel. Engineers and managers with the company between 1976 and 1994 share their memories of the groundbreaking moments, soaring business highs, and stunning employee turnover that came with being on top in the early days of the microcomputer industry. This updated second edition includes additional interviews and first-hand material from major Commodore figures like marketing guru Kit Spencer, chip designer Bill Mensch, and Commodore co-founder Manfred Kapp.
