A book about the Amstrad history in Spain by Jesús Martínez del Vas

On the 8th November a book will be released about the Amstrad history in Spain, written by Jesús Martínez del Vas : Queremos Su Dinero (we want your money). You will learn more about Indescomp, Amstrad Spain and José Luis Domínguez (founder of Indescomp in 1982).

The book will be showed for the first time the 5th November at the Fnac of Callao (Madrid) with José Luis Dominguez himself.
