New Atari book launched!

Long time Atari enthusiasts and historians Curt Vendel and Marty Goldberg have released their new book Atari Inc: Business is Fun .
Several years in the making, and weighing in at 800 pages, the book covers the often called golden years of Atari, before the company was off-loaded by Warner Communications to Jack Tramiel.
With hundreds of pictures, many of them never published before, interviews and factual information, this book aims to be the definitive historical piece to Atari history and puts to bed many myths about the company once and for all.

Atari Inc: Business is fun is available now from Amazon in the USA, and from Amazon UK.  It is a must buy purchase for any Atari enthusiast as well as anyone else with a broader interest in video gaming history.
