This book was one of the first books I bought about pinball machines, and I never regretted it.
It should be the first book every new pinball owner buys.

At first sight the book may not look interesting. No glossy pictures, ball-eye shots of colorful playfields.. but that's not the goal of this book. Its goal is to provide answers to every question a new pinball machine owner will have.

As this was also the goal for me when I started this website, I found this book very interesting. Everyone who is new to pinball (ownership) should own this book.
It answers all the basic questions one has, even up to the simple things like how to remove a glass, open a game, what types of light bulbs are used. What to do later, what maintenance is required, what basic repairs can one do, how do specific assemblies work, ..

Back when I started this book was a great source of knowlegde, but nowadays it's more interesting to have, as there are many sites online that will teach you the same information.
