The Spectacular Rise And Fall Of C=
On The Edge: The Spectacular Rise And Fall Of Commodore by Brian Bagnall.
"Filled with first-hand accounts of ambition, greed, and inspired engineering, this history of the personal computer revolution takes readers inside the cutthroat world of Commodore. Before Apple, IBM, or Dell, Commodore was the first computer maker to market its machines to the public, selling an estimated 22 million Commodore 64s. These halcyon days were tumultuous, however, owing to the expectations and unsparing tactics of founder Jack Tramiel. Engineers and managers with the company between 1976 and 1994 share their experiences of the groundbreaking moments, soaring business highs, and stunning employee turnover that came along with being on top of the PC world in the early days."

Re: The Spectacular Rise And Fall Of C=
Nice to see it for sale in a mainstream retailer :-)
I read it last year. It's very interesting, though marred slightly by some embarressing typos and slight discontinuity in parts of the narrative caused by last-minute removals of some material.
Regardless, I recommend it. Go buy a copy now.
