The Heart of a Nation Steve Greenberg’s book is funny, informative and–this part surprised me–quite touching. The drive, imagination and optimism of these inventors, wacky though some may be, form the heart of what makes America, and the human being, so great. Can’t wait for the author’s next book.
Gadgets are Great !! This book is 240 pages of creative and wacky inventions. All of the inventions solve a problem, some problems not too important, others we struggle with every day and wish we would have thought of that! I read every page and tried to guess if the product made money or not. Most of the time I was surprised the inventor didn’t make more money, because they had such a good idea! I would have liked this book to go into more details of how to bring an invention to market, make it yourself or license it to a manufacturer? However, this collection of products illustrates the huge number of great inventions we never hear about, probably only 10% of these every make it onto store selves. What website can we buy them from?Thanks Steve, keep up the good work.David
