Awesome Atari book! I just finished reading HC4! 🙂  

I liked the screenshots and analysis sections, and the coverage of the new Atari consoles games like Strip Off from Tactical Neuronics.

I also liked hearing favorably about programmers and productions that aren't always noticed or promoted on AtariAge - my friend from the scene bitd Greg Zumwalt is featured in this book with pictures and a backdrop story for Candyman I enjoyed.

I've started Reading BREAKOUT how Atari computers defined a generation and it's an awesome book too with great screenshots and insightful stories 🙂

Racing the Beam is available free online as a PDF, and I downloaded it after losing my copy, but there's nothing like reading a real book and rereading the PDF just did not compare - I'll be reading this hardcover next.
