The stuff of American life! It's at the heart of the American Dream: Invent a new product that fills a need, strikes a nerve or just seems like good fun and then--bang! Amass a fortune selling it to the world! Made in America tells over 200 such stories of "the little (and big) products that could." Inventions and innovations that changed the world in ways both large and small are featured, from the accidental creations of icons like Coca-Cola and the Slinky to culture-changing technology such as Microsoft and Google - with loads of Americana in-between. Trivia fans and American history buffs will love these quick fact-filled profiles.

“A handy, smallish, soft-back format ideal as a stocking-filler ... It’s not too heavy, fun to dip into and very informative. Go buy!”
