Lindsay, David


"A fascinating history of the unexpected intersection of science, technology and show business."--John Steele Gordon, author of Hamilton's Blessing"Once upon a time, American know-how flourished through show-how: spectacular demonstrations by ever resourceful technological entrepreneurs. David Lindsay brings back these glorious (and sometimes infamous) theatricals in a delightful, witty, narrative with a serious point: the American inventor, now relegated to endless rehearsals, needs to resume a rightful place on the national center stage. For admirers and critics of technology and for veteran and inspiring inventors, Madness in the Making will give pleasure and inspire debate."--Edward Tenner. Author of Why Things Bite BackLindsay, David is the author of 'Madness in the Making The Triumphant Rise & Untimely Fall of America's Show Inventors', published 2005 under ISBN 9780595347667 and ISBN 0595347665.
