What you see is what you get, a biography by Lord Alan Michael Sugar


It took me time before starting reading this book, but now it's done, the official biograhy of and by Lord Alan Michael Sugar.

I did read already his other biographies :

  • Alan Sugar, the Amstrad Story by David Thomas
  • Sir Alan Sugar, the biography by Charlie Burden

The first one gave insights about his childhoold but nothing about his football years. Whereas the second one was introducing his foootball years. WYSIWYG give a lot more details about his childhood, the first steps which made him the man we all know and also a lot more on his football years. Honestly, I did appreciate this book and I recommend its reading. The only regret and it's purely personal, the book has a part about the Amstrad CPC computers but nothing about the CPC 664 which was my first computer, not very important though.

So, let's wish at least as much good if not more for the hear 2020. And personnally I wish you and people you care for a good and happy new year.

A book about the Amstrad history in Spain by Jesús Martínez del Vas


On the 8th November a book will be released about the Amstrad history in Spain, written by Jesús Martínez del Vas : Queremos Su Dinero (we want your money). You will learn more about Indescomp, Amstrad Spain and José Luis Domínguez (founder of Indescomp in 1982).
