“The History of the Future” Book Launch


Join us on Tuesday, February 18th for the launch of local author Blake J. Harris’s new book The History of the Future! Harris is the author of the bestseller Console Wars: Sega, Nintendo and the Battle that Defined a Generation, which both NPR and Slate named a Best Book of the Year (2014).

Praise for Console Wars:
“Fast, fluid, and startlingly accessible.” -Entertainment Weekly

“A fast-paced page-turner…it’s exciting to finally get a no-holds-barred account of a history that has largely been kept secret from the public eye.” -Wired

“It’s far and away one of the best non-fiction books I’ve ever read.” -Forbes

“Like the pixels that together create a larger picture, Harris presents the various elements of the business in vivid color…remarkably detailed and fast paced.” -Booklist

“A must-read. Period.” -IGN
