Yet another good retro video game book I found on Scribd: Zap: The Rise and Fall of Atari.
Zap is actually about as old as the video game history it covers. It was published in 1984, a fact that really becomes evident in the later half of the book. Though it would be easily to laugh at or complain about some of the dated material in that half, it still remains that Cohen gives us a pretty decent history of the very early games of Atari. If you are reading these books just to connect with your childhood (as I am), this book will suffice. I recommend checking it out.
