    I received a copy of this one over the weekend:
    amazon.com link »

    Mr. Bueschel was the dean of pinball historians, and is thanked in the acknowledgments. In places, the exceptionally good section on early pinball history reads like a direct transcription of Mr. Bueschel telling stories over the phone.

    Published in 1979, the book was probably written as the first Space Invaders machines started appearing, so pinball is just about at its height in gaming culture. The mix of color and black and white photos is great. I bet pinheads would eat up a nice reprint of this one.
