Format: Paperback
I bought this book when I was 10 and I still have it. The object of the book was to enable you to get higher scores. Compare that to modern video games - when was the last time video games had *scores?*

I like the bonus section in the back of the book that showed you "exercises" to strengthen your gaming fingers. These were awesome too - roll a pencil around a door knob with your fingers to increase your dexterity!

This cheap little paperback, printed on bulk-rate paper, isn't a gem of strategy, but it is a nice period piece for looking at the early days of "the video games." In today's marketplace of photorealistic 3D graphics, 5.1 surround sound, and internet-enabled play, it's fun to go back and see what people really valued back then: gameplay. Sure, we talk about "gameplay over graphics" nowadays, but it really meant something back then.

Format: Paperback
I used to lose at the video games; I was crushed by my ineptitude and ignorance about them- you could in fact say that they were the Master of me. I picked up this book, and studied it daily; and I can now profess that it does indeed work! The secrets contained within transcend any one game, and rather give you the knowledge and tools needed to master ALL the video games, which is exactly what I have done.
I now spend my time in my mountaintop dojo contemplating the meaning of the video games, perfecting them in my mind as I no longer have the need to even play them in order to achieve complete mastery.
