    "From here on you had better think of Atari as a major player in the computer game."
    - Jerry Pournelle, Infoworld, 1985
    (Reviewing the Atari ST)

    Great Book:
    The First Quarter : A 25-year History of Video Games is an insider's look at the entertainment novelty that drove the evolution of high-technology. This comprehensive look at the history of video games includes many first-hand interviews, including Nolan Bushnell (founder of Atari.)
    cover "If Phoenix is the game industry's textbook, this is its unauthorized biography. Both books are great on their own, but they also complement each other amazingly well -- reading one makes you want to reread the other immediately. "
    - Review from Next-Gen Magazine
    "...the best video game history book I've ever come across...a definitive overview of how it all started."
    - John Romero, Founder of Ion Storm
