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.


Bil Herd and Margaret Gorts Morabito tell the inside stories of how Herd and his team of (mostly) young individuals crafted new computers using the resources of one of the largest computer manufacturers at the time at their disposal, without design committees or management oversight groups to get in the way of true progress.
