The Spectacular Rise and Fall of Commodore

...is the title of this 'ere new book.

I haven't got anything else to add since I've not read it, but thought lots of people would be interested in checking it out.

From A4000 to babyphones, is this really a deep fall?
















Yes, it is.

I finished it last weekend

Book was really great. Some chapters made me angry but that was not book's fault...

My copy arrived today I haven't really had a chance to start reading it yet, but it looks a very nice book. Good quality covers and bindings etc, and would recommend it.

Got it, reading it (just around the VIC-20/VIC-1001 era), recommend it heartily.

Great insight, I thought I had a good idea of how things went, but the reality seems to be quite different. :-D

Is this book for sale in bookstores? I live in Sweden so it'd be nice if it was.

I just got a note today I can pick up my copy at the postoffice tomorrow, so it just took 7,5 weeks for me . Wouldve ordered from you if I`d known this earlier (especially as Im also still looking for that smallish IDE-Cable).
