getAbstract Summary: Get the key points from this book in less than 10 minutes.

Part history lesson and part political treatise, this collection of biographies about highly prolific but often lesser-known American inventors takes direct aim at President Barack Obama's 2012 assertion that business owners need help from government-funded programs. Conservative pundit and best-selling author Michelle Malkin punctuates her detailed portraits of ambitious US "tinkerpreneurs" with assertions about how the United States' historic support of patents and intellectual property rights facilitated the development of new products and systems. Some students of history and economics may find gaps in her interpretations, and some readers may find the book's political asides a little jarring, but everyone can enjoy learning how everyday Americans changed the world with their ideas. While always politically neutral, getAbstract recommends Malkin's engrossing mini-biographies especially to readers who seek a sincere, impassioned defense of free market capitalism.
