"The pinball machine is a wonderful invention. It has managed to combine the unpredictability of a rolling, bouncing silver ball, as unpredictable as the flip of a coin, with the most up to date technological advancements in electronics, mechanics and now even computers, in order to amuse and test the skill of mankind. What other modern amusement machine can boast a longevity lasting over 60 years, having withstood the test of time and ever-changing technology, while maintaining its instantly recognizable form? The answer is simple-none. In the field of collectibles, the pinball machine is finally being recognized in its own right, due in part to the exponential increase in the number of serious collectors and enthusiasts. The Complete Pinball Book is a book that will be a welcomed addition to the libraries of all those collectors and enthusiasts, and for the novice an informative guide. The Complete Pinball Book is the complete historical study of the silverball, covering the game's events from the 1930s to the 1990s. This along with a listing of over 3000 games built to date, statistical information and over 800 original photographs including a large selection of close ups, images of rare prototypes and games never before seen in print, makes this one of the most complete pinball books in a long time" -Vanessa Gilbert-Rossignoli The book is 320 pages. It contains approximately 850 color images (backglasses, playfields and a lot of close-ups) of around 270 different machines. About 70,000 words in text and 25,000 words in captions.
