With millions of views on YouTube, Leigh is well known to his loyal fans for his in-depth videos about the software, hardware, games, toys, programs and magazines of the 70s, 80s and 90s, through his channel, Nostalgia Nerd. He has no shame admitting his addiction to retro tech (indeed it would be hard to hide).
In this eagerly-awaited new book from the author of the best-selling Nostalgia Nerd’s Retro Tech, Peter Leigh takes a fun, informative and irreverent romp through the history of more than forty pieces of personal tech, charting the successes, failures and oddities from over five decades of our obsession with gadgetry.
From the Teasmade to the TomTom, mankind has been on a constant hunt for gimmicks that make life easier, faster and more entertaining, and as yesterday’s ‘must-haves’ become today’s museum pieces, there’s no better time to take a nostalgic trip through tech’s back catalogue.
This is the second book I have from Nostalgia Nerd, the first, The Nostalgia Nerd’s Retro Tech: Computer, Consoles & Games, was a fantastic little book. This new book is similar, but that is in no way a bad thing.
