Ralph H. Baer: Origins. Baer was born in the Rhineland in 1922 into a fallen German Empire crippled by unprecedented debt and stricken by national shame and misery following a catastrophic defeat in the First World War. This wretched interbellum period witnessed the rise of the charismatic Nazi leader Adolf Hitler, and it was his violent and exclusionary anti-Semitic policies that drove Baer and his family first to the Netherlands and eventually to the United States in 1938. As a young man, the immigrant Baer showed a flair for engineering and invention. In 1940, after a correspondence course.

I love the insights into the early days of the industry. I especially love the hand drawn conceptual diagrams of the early systems.

Conteans a lot of stuff about the history and electronics.
The resolution of the pictures are to low, but if you contact the publisher you will get a link to download the higher resolution.

Ralph Baer is the genius who ushered in the age of videogames with his "brown box" and the Magnavox Odyssey. If you were unfamiliar with his name, or just want to read about the incredibly influential, varied and imaginative work of a true artisan - get this book!

I've spent over a decade chronicling the history of videogames through the museum exhibit VIDEOTOPIA and I'd suggest you don't miss out on this book. To get such a detailed and intimate look at a true pioneer of the digital age is a rare, rare treat. Ralph Baer is a gentleman, a scholar and an inventor of incredible skill. You'll be amazed at the extent of his creations (and just how many of them that you are familiar with - you just didn't know HE created them!)

Videogames are the sole reason for the information revolution that we are living through today. There might have been an internet without them - but without them, there'd be no one ON that internet except for academics. There is simply no reason for computers to have all the vast capabilities that they have today in speed and visualization if their sole purposes were for word processing and spreadsheets. Videogames are the engine that have driven the industry, and Ralph Baer was the first one to turn the key and fire that engine up.

Owning this book is like being able to page through Edison's notebooks or thumb through Columbus's diaries as he charted a course for a new world... Just like Columbus, Ralph Baer did chart a course to a new world (and just like Columbus - he couldn't conceive of exactly what that world we be like, or where the discoveries would take us)... and you are looking for books within it right now!

I was fortunate enough to be able to interview Ralph Baer a few years ago when he was still working on getting this book published. A fascinating and insightful man who has changed the way people perceive entertainment, this book is not just a defense of his place in a long line of beloved electronic entertainment (Nolan Bushnell taking Pong from Baer, followed by Baer taking Electronic Simon from Bushnell is certainly one of my favorite stories in the video game industry) but also a fascinating look into the emergent technologies that have evolved today to be almost unrecognizable. If you like electronic gadgets, this is the book for you. Really very fascinating and enjoyable to read and explore.

All I knew about Baer was that he's the controversial inventor of videogame console systems. I was skeptical of the stories I'd heard, but decided to give his side a read.

I am now convinced: even if the concept of videogames had never been a part of his life, he is still a man to be revered by us computer nerds, and his life story would still be worth reading, still one the rest of us can learn from - I sure did.

It's a bit dry, on the technical side. Engineers would love it (so, I did love it).

But it was a Christmas present for my daughter, who is a professional in the video game business, on the "soft side" (licensing, marketing, distribution, etc.). She grew up about 15 miles from where all the technical action takes place in the book, and she knows that neighborhood well. Even though she is not very technical, she thought it was very, very cool...
