Really well written biography of a forgotten giant
on 16 August 2006
I enjoyed this book a lot. Every chapter describes a part of Commodore's history, from moments such as the development of the PET, the VIC-20, the C64, C128 and the Amigas. The depiction of the protagonist Jack Tramiel (and later in the book Irving Gould) is superb and you feel as though you really get to know what it must have been like to work for him!
The latter part of the book was my initial main interest as I used to love my Amiga and it is shocking to learn how Commodore seemed to do their best to destroy any future it may have. However, the rest of the book (of which is the large majority) is about the 8-bit era and is very interesting indeed.
