A history of American "tinkerpreneurs" provides the stories of a range of American businesses, from the Maglite flashlight to the Gillette razor to today's artificial limbs. At times I longed for an image of the processes described, so that is a disadvantage to the audiobook. The excessively long tracks, several over 20 minutes, make it difficult to get back to one's place. You do have to tolerate Malkin's anti-government bias, but you can easily skip past the foreword and the conclusive chapters.
