If you're the sort of the person who likes to type in listings, but also likes a detailed description of their workings, this book is for you. The Bishops are noted authors and contributors to computing and electronics magazines, so when they say all programs are listed from a debugged and working Amstrad program, I think we can take them as accurate even if Collins are the publishers. Certainly I was unable to find any errors in programs or text. Furthermore the Bishops take great pains to describe the most probable typing errors you'll make, such as mistaking lower case 1, capital I and the number 1 for each other. If the programs don't work, it's probably your fault.

There's a pretty broad spectrum of programs here, 14 in all, and aimed at practical and serious, though simple, applications. Statistics feature prominently, with a Pools program, trend analysis, statistical deviation and decision analysis. Home owners can type in listings for planning space layouts, checking cashflow with a simple spreadsheet, doing accounts and watching the call charges accumulate while making phone calls. There are several varieties of database, and a Supersound program that makes it easier to develop sounds using the complex Amstrad SOUND command.

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.
