I went into this book with a high expectation. Overall, it paints a very dynamic decade of what Sega has done during the 90s.
As someone who spent the entire teenage years with Genesis/Saturn/Dreamcast, it brought many great memories back.

I bought this book as a Kindle e-book. Read it on the Kindle 4th gen.

Pros:
*Serviceable e-book kindle formatting. Could have been better but nothing wrong with formatting.
*Great job covering everything from Sega's origin to Dreamcast era.
*Details are right in the middle. Not too much, not too little.

Cons:
*Some incorrect facts. For example, the author lists Battle Arena Toshinden as a Namco game and descries Yu Suzuki as a master Programmer.(Toshiden is a Takara game, and Yu Suzuki is a director/producer).
*Too much repetition throughout the book. Some information are repeated way too many times.
*The flow is akward is some places. It throws you off the rail.
*Some minor grammer errors.

Considering the price, it's a nice read for any diehard Sega fan.

While there is some decent information, the factual errors are too numerous for me to enjoy the book. I wish that more solid research and fact checking had been done before publication.
