My favourite bit was the piece on the Megadeth font.

Interesting thing is, I had discussed this before, privately, and some people did agree with me; ever since posting this here, some even contacted me to discuss it and they also agree, but some of them are hesitant to come forward in case they are branded as negativists (sic) or whatever. A real shame.
hi you are welcome.
the same here i also did not want discuss it here, so i was also about to send you a PM

it is about people not give negative/constitutive feedback or feedback at all.

BEWARE..., it's like stabbing your hand in a wasp nest, you will wake up the wrath of the forum, and all the people here, that normally can't spent a moment helping people, giving feedback, say hello to new members, ect. will come and tell you how wrong you are...

Because nobody out there seemed to liked the book. That saves me $60 I guess...

Don't buy Volume 2.
Buy something for your girlfriend instead and have a nice day.
My post was about the scene's reaction to bad products

It is part of the human genome. Do not think about it, enjoy your power to bring something positive to the Atari scene, that can not be done by anyone.

Reason I’m writing this (or rather, the occasion) is a discussion I had last night with Marco A. Breddin, writer of The Atari ST and the Creative People, on Twitter.
This is not about this book specifically, but about a situation I feel has formed around productions in the retro scene in the last few years. Namely, judging new releases with increasingly rose-tinted glasses and not providing honest feedback to creators.
The past few years have seen a multitude of releases in hardware, software or print. Some are awesome (for instance the Commodore Story, or the Sensible book), some are decidedly mediocre (like a certain author who put out a series of books within a few short months from KickStarter to delivery, so hastily put together they even contained MobyGames screenshots), to downright awful (Atari, Inc: Business is Fun).
Now, I’m one of those who will buy almost everything, even in case where I know I’ll regret it. However, when I regret it, especially when the creator has obviously put in tons of work into his opus, I’m very hesitant in reviewing it negatively.
