Daniel Martin is a systems engineer with the French firm Inter-technique who specialise in manufacturing micros based on the PICK system. Originally written in French, Glentop has brought the book to the British market for the benefit of Amstrad CPC users on this side of the Channel. The book will not be of interest to everyone, however. This is definitely a technical book. It is for those readers who wish to know about the structure of their machines; their components and the details of how they work.

Most of the book is taken up with details about internal workings of the .Amstrad CPCs, both from a chip/circuit and internal software point of view. Readers wishing to learn how to program in Basic or looking for an easy introduction to machine code will not find it here. This book is for users who already know how to program in Basic and want to get down to the nitty-gritty and find out what really makes their computer tick. This type of book is guaranteed to turn most users weak at the knees, but for every nine that do, there is sure to be one who will find just what he has been looking for.

Despite the complexities of the subject matter covered, the layout of the book is simple and easy to follow. The whole text is divided into a series of lists and tables, with conventional pages occurring here and there. Even so, to get the most from this book, the reader will have to know exactly what he wants already and he must have the prior knowledge to help him use it.

L'Amstrad CPC est une machine 8 bits à base d'un Z80 à 4MHz. Le premier de la gamme fut le CPC 464 en 1984, équipé d'un lecteur de cassettes intégré il se plaçait en concurrent  du Commodore C64 beaucoup plus compliqué à utiliser et plus cher. Ce fut un réel succès et sorti cette même années le CPC 664 équipé d'un lecteur de disquettes trois pouces intégré. Sa vie fut de courte durée puisqu'en 1985 il fut remplacé par le CPC 6128 qui était plus compact, plus soigné et surtout qui avait 128Ko de RAM au lieu de 64Ko.
