Captain's Log / star date 2010.1207

Just liked to draw your attention to a new book that's come out about Commodore. It's the second edition of a book by author Brian Bagnall that chronicles the rise and fall of our beloved Commodore. I've read and own the first edition of this book, that was originally titled "On the Edge: the Spectacular Rise and Fall of Commodore". It was an absolute blast to read and offered a fascinating inside look into the goings on of Commodore from its birth in the late 70's, to it's glory days in the 80's, to its spectacular collapse in 1994. This original first edition was published in 2005 and has been long sold out, fetching crazy prices on eBay and Amazon ($300 US or more is not an exception). 

Now, finally after a five long years a new and revised version of this book is published with so much more new material that it had to be split in two parts. The first part is now available as a 548 page hard cover. You can order a signed edition of the book directly from the publisher here. The book should be available from other online book stores like Amazon soon and no, I don't have any financial interest in this book, nor do I get a kickback for any book sold linked from this site. I just happen to love the original read and hope I can support the author in a small way by giving this book a plug on my site. My signed edition is already in the mail and I hope it'll be here in time for the holidays. Nothing like a good book when it's cold outside!
