    Hi folks, my nephew (13) has started expressing an interest in the history of games/gaming.

    Can anyone recommend a book for that age please?

    Power-Up by Chris Kohler and Game Over David Sheff are a good place to start.

    The Ultimate History of Video Games: From Pong to Pokemon - The Story Behind the Craze That Touched Our Lives and Changed the World by Steve Kent is a more comprehensive one and a good read.

    Console Wars is a fun read as well.

    Would also recommend the retronauts podcast.
