Hi! If you are a serious collector or player of video games, then the book, Retro-Electro: Collecting Technology from Atari to Walkman by Pepe Tozzo, will be an enlightening read. Retro-Electro will add both a new dimension and a new perspective to your understanding of your collecting hobby.
First, since Retro-Electro was written and first published outside the USA, the book provides a look at game collecting from a worldwide point-of-view. We collectors in the USA are mostly familiar with, and interested in, only the USA released games. But, worldwide there are many more games.
Second, Retro-Electro treats the entire spectrum of classic technology, not just the games aspect. What we commonly think of as the classic game era (generally the 1970's and 1980's), is actually the beginnings of, and the classic era for, the technological revolution.
This was the time when technology first began to creep into our everyday lives, and ultimately changed everything. So, you will learn that there are many cool technological things to collect in addition to games.
For me, Retro-Electro is a book that expanded my collecting horizons. And, the sharp, glossy color photos and price guide make for a very valuable addition to your library.
