Don't know if anybody is still struggling to find these books but the Smiths I go to has the C64/Spectrum, NES/Master System, Amiga and the blue Hardware 1977-2001 book (there's no volume number on it so I assume it's the revision) on the shelves.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

Lovely book (bookazine) - could never afford the actual machine at school, but a friend had one, so I have some top notch Amiga memories. I also liked staring at the bouncing ball demo like kitten when I first saw it

I know the new Amiga book has the Revision mention on the spine. I think the Hardware book has revision on the spine as well or 2015 edition. This is from memory tho :)

The Revisied Amiga book has the same number of pages as the first. Anyone know what new content there is in the revised one (in favour of what was dropped) or do I need to take my first copy to Smiths to compare :lol:

To those who have this Amiga Book - if I've got every issue of Retro Gamer, is it worth getting this book? How much of the content (a rough percentage) is new, and how much is from Retro Gamer mags?
