Publisher's Summary

Bill Geist, two-time Emmy recipient and long-time CBS news correspondent, chronicles 19 wacky but true entrepreneurial endeavors that prove the American Dream is alive and well - if but just a tad warped. Who says America doesn't make anything anymore? Where else could you find Bob Chandler who made a fortune by inventing the huge-wheeled behemoth of the arena, the car-crushing monster truck? How about Hardy Warren, dean of the dog-eat-dog California traffic school? Or Hall Schlenger, creator of the cable Fish Channel. "You have to understand the entertainment value of a fish." And what about the legendary Ron Popeil and his Pocket Fisherman, spray-on hair, and Veg-o-Matic? All this could only happen in America, land of whopper-tunity.
