They must have done a reprint of this somewhat recently because I managed to track down a new copy on Amazon, though I’m not seeing that reprint now. Very fun book.

There’s a pdf scan of the whole thing that’s floating around the Net if you hard enough. It’s a weird book – it’s part describing the zeitgeist of 1980s Britain with Amis hanging out with his heavy-drinking buddy (who is obviously Christopher Hitchens) and part literal strategy tips for video games, not just Space Invaders, but all the other early 1980s arcade games like Pac-Man.

Wow, just like Tron!!

My copy of this has long since fallen apart. But this was mostly because the illustrations enabled my mother to knit me some amazing jumpers back in the day. (I think I posted pictures on a BB thread many years ago!)
