David Greelish of ClassicComputing.com and Randy Kindig of FloppyDays.com read this wonderful book. Stan was a pioneer in the realm of personal computers; he was also a retail pioneer to us, the consumer.
He opened the first microcomputer store on the east coast, which was only the second one in the world! In his book, he recollects about the machines he sold and the people he met in his store from the mid to late 1970's. He also covers computers of the very early '80's and tells the story of IBM's introduction of the PC in 1981 - and what happened to the competition.
