Summary
America is a nation of inventors, tinkerers, researchers, and adventurers. What is it that makes America such a fertile place to explore, discover, and launch the next big thing? Baker brings his eye for historical detail to the grand, and grandly entertaining, tale of American innovation. You'll meet people who followed their passions and changed our world; the women who created things to make their own lives easier. And you'll learn how immigration leads to innovation
