The subtitle of this book is "A Design Engineer's Story of Commodore Computers in the 1980s" and it recounts the experiences of hardware engineers designing Commodore Business Machines from 1983 to 1986. It's author, Bil Herd, was the lead design engineer for the TED series of home computers which included the Plus/4 and C16.
