Inventors At Work book

Fellow Founders:

I?ve just had a book published, INVENTORS AT WORK, which is a collection of 23 interviews with inventors of famous products, innovations and technologies that have made life easier or changed the way we live. All of these scientists, engineers, wild-eyed geniuses and amateur technologists have dedicated their lives to the pursuit of that singular Eureka! moment in their laboratories or garages. The intent was to talk about the process they go through, not so much the product they invented. Each has altered the modern world as we know it in some significant way.

INVENTORS AT WORK is a required reading for all technical/creative individuals and entrepreneurs to better understand the innovation process and the logistics of following through on an idea that has the potential to change society. This book provides insights into the nature of creativity and intuition, the skill sets needed, self-motivation or desire that must be summoned to spend endless hours searching for an answer to a question that no one else has asked or solving a problem most think has no solution.

INVENTORS AT WORK is a book for the professional scientist/engineer/inventor, the aspiring inventor/entrepreneur, product developers/innovators and the backyard mechanic/maker. The book offers insights into the process of inventing and the motivation and drive required for creating something novel. It will present a narrative of the inventing process and examples of how brilliant minds work,  how they often fail and sometimes succeed. The book is a blueprint for all of us who dream of creating the next new thing.

Examples:
Steve Wozniak- Apple/personal computer
Robert Dennard- IBM/Ram memory
Don Keck - Corning/fiber optics
Helen Greiner- iRobot/robotics
Eric Fossum - Image senors
Reyn Guyer - Nerf ball
Tim Leatherman- Leatherman Tools/folding hand tools

I'll buy a copy, after all, entrepreneurs and (authors who write about
entrepreneurs/innovators) don't become successful by giving their products
away. J

Hey Brett,

Very interesting work (too bad that I miss your first 5!!). I run a eBook
linking service (demo: http://www.mobnotate.com/bib.html). Perhaps there
might be opportunity for us there to increase your sales/downloads.
