I'm going to guess that there's a lot of non-video game material in this book.  Cabbage Patch Kids especially.  Seems like electronics only came near the end of their history.  And the failure of Adam killed them off.  I've always been intrigued with Coleco....if they'd  have just stuck with Colecovision and not bothered with Adam...would they have survived?  According to all that I've read, CV sold well up to the very end of it's existence.
