About The Tetris Effect: The Game that Hypnotized the World by Dan Ackerman:
In his book The Tetris Effect, Dan Ackerman provides an informative, intriguing account of the history of one of the world’s most popular video games.
The surprising story begins in Soviet Russia, where computer researcher Alexey Pajitnov programmed the first version of Tetris using outdated software—before it spread westward and went viral. As the addictive game grew in popularity around the world, so did the fight for its ownership.
Learn about the early days of Cold War–era computer programming, the people and companies who sought control of the intellectual property, and how playing Tetris physically impacts our brains.
