Sometimes I hear about a book that I think you guys would love. Like this one. And guess what. The author, Jeff Ryan, and his publisher, are so cool that they want you to have a copy.
The first 10 people to email imremembering@gmail.com will get a book. You must put SUPER MARIO in the subject line of the email to be eligible. 
Only the winners will be notified. Good luck! 
Here’s a little teaser: 
In SUPER MARIO: How Nintendo Conquered America, video game expert Jeff Ryan explores the innovations and shrewd business strategies that paved the way for Nintendo’s success.  Among the stories:
The lawsuit over Donkey Kong’s similarity to King Kong, which Nintendo won by using Universal’s own words (and their own knockoff game) against them.
How Sonic, the speedy hare to Mario’s steady tortoise, lost the race, as SEGA sunk from home console competitor to third-party developer.
How a brief series of Phillips CD games turned a rare Nintendo licensing deal into a punch line.
The unexpected approach that allowed Nintendo to reinvent itself as the gaming system for the non-gamer, grabbing market share by creating a new market.
