If you are a Pac-Man fan or retrogamer, this is a fabulous book. Filled with history and information on the video game industry and Pac-Man in particular. An excellent read, a beautiful hardcover book. Tons of colorful pictures and informative facts. A must have for retro gamers! Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Stellar Arcade Book of the Ages!
Reviewed in the United States on 9 March 2022
I just finished another stellar book by Tim Lapetino and Arjan Terpstra. This one covers an in-depth look into the origin story of Pac-Man and the creators behind the development of the game throughout the 80s. It gives us an insightful perspective of early arcade culture and evolution of the game itself. Plus a complete nostalgic overview of all things Pac-man related and every single spin-off game that came after it. Much like The Art of Atari, this book contains a vast collection of both historic and archival photographs of the development of the game and 80s arcade culture. Highest recommendations for all!
