"8-BIT KIDS - Growing Up With The Commodore 64 is the first of hopefully many books by publisher Amicom Books. The main focus of Amicom is top level books all about the 1980s."
"Holidays were all about gaming, endless hours of battling it out around the Commodore 64.
To my friends and myself, a gaming holiday was worth as much as a Caribbean get-a-away to our parents!"
Growing Up with The Commodore 64
This book is all about being a youngster in the 1980's.
Your status was measured by how many discs and the amount of popular games you possessed.
The kid with the new and highly desired games was ruler of our world.
Many bubble-gum, A-Team gaming cards and even BMX bikes traded hands for these new, not so new and even cracked games. Nothing mattered more than being Knight Rider, the A-team and even ET for a moment.
