I bought this book after reading Master of Doom by the same author and found it to be just as good! I'd played a lot of Dave Jones games growing up from Bloody Money on the ATARI ST to Lemmings on the PC and when GTA 1 came out in 1997 it was a fun little game I enjoyed. I stopped gaming as much so didnt get GTA 3/4 and all the add on and side projects but knew of the mark it was making on the entertainment industry. This book takes the reader from the humble beginnings in Dundee, Scotland to the high roller times in America when the guys making these games told Burt Reynolds to sit down and shut up because the last game they produced made more money than all of his movies combined. Even if you arent a hardcore gamer or really played GTA in any of its guises this is a page turner that explains how the video game industry came from nowhere to take the entertainment crown. Highly recommended.

It is as it says - a detailed look at the story behind Grand Theft Auto.
That said, I find it to be a little less technical than Masters of Doom, which I also thoroughly enjoyed - but if you want to feel like you were there, a fly on the wall, during the deals and trials occurring throughout the birth of the Grand Theft Auto series, it's definitely worth a read. If you were looking for a more objective look and technical details involved, it is lacking on that front.

Had been waiting for a book like this for a while. self-confessed gta-addict. Always wanted to read a book which gave a good history of the franchise. The earlier sections of the book detailing DMA, Dave Jones and the beginning of Rockstar are really interesting, but there are long sections later on which didn't grab me as much. GTA4 was also not a large part of the book either. Even San Andreas, which I thought would be an amazing section to cover was boiled down to hot coffee and the sex minigames which, to me at least, seemed to be only a small part of the game.

Maybe I'll write it instead lol

A really interesting book on the GTA franchise from start to finish. A must read for big Rockstar and Grand Theft Auto fans. But be warned this book will make you want to play the games so badly!! Even if it means buying then again haha.
