I have the first edition, this email relates to the 2nd edition. It's been cancelled.

It supposedly has new material, one of which is an interview with Jack Tramiel.

So, it's not On the Edge, right? That was the first book.

I've heard of a new release with a Jack Tramiel interview inside (I was waiting this for years), but tough luck I see. :(

As Vassilis stated, if you need the first edition.... (but you have it mate)... :D

On the Edge - The spectacular rise and fall of Commodore

That is the first edition as I understand it.

For the second edition the title was changed, and jack tramiel interview was added and some other minor material:

The Commodore Story: A Company on the Edge

.

But now I'm confused. Some book databases lists this in two versions. If I only could find an ISBN number to conclude for sure...

As you can see, the ISBNs differ... And I can't find any "first editions" of the Commodore story.

There is a story for Amiga Future there, they should get in contact with Brian Bagnall or Variant Press and ask what happened with the book :)
