Anyone who thinks America no longer contributes innovations for public consumption needs to pay attention to Bill Geist. The long-time news correspondent chronicles seven wacky but true entrepreneurial endeavors that prove the American Dream is alive and well—just a tad warped. 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? Or Hall Schlenger, creator of the cable Fish Channel. 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.
