Product description

Review

Masters of Doom is an impressive and adroit social history. (New York Times Book Review)

Hot book! The Behind the Music - like story of video gaming's Nineties bad boys...a tale of guts, geeks and their 140mpd-clocking Ferraris - as well as the backlash against gaming after Columbine. (Rolling Stone)

Book Description

Masters of Doom' is the true inside story of John Carmack and John Romero, co-creators of the most innovative and notoriously successful video games in history - Doom and Quake.
