Cooool.

I'll read this after I'm finished with a Team of Rivals, which is the story of how Baberham Lincoln worked with Sonic and Mario to make Super Smash Bros. Brawl....

Right?

Kinda cool but then I thought: OK, who really cares about Atari anymore these days? I was around gaming back then, and I couldn't be bothered to read this book. :)
