Praise for Masters of Doom

“Terrifically told . . . The storytelling is so fluid, so addictive, that your twitching thumbs keep working the pages.”
The Washington Post Book World

“Kushner’s mesmerizing tale of the Two Johns moves at a rapid clip . . . describing the twists and turns of fate that led them to team up in creating the most powerful video games of their generation. . . . An exciting combination of biography and technology.”
USA Today

“Meticulously researched . . . As a ticktock of the creative process and as insight into a powerful medium too often dismissed as kids’ stuff, Masters of Doom blasts its way to a high score.”
Entertainment Weekly

“[An] extraordinary journey . . . an exhilarating time capsule of a moment in time where anything could happen–and often did. Kushner’s take on this geek uprising is like a breakneck-paced comic book that you can’t put down.”

“Kushner’s portrait of Carmack is lustrous and gripping. . . . An impressive and adroit social history.”
The New York Times Book Review
