    Story
    (17)

    America’s self-invented tinkerers are back at it in their metaphorical garages - fiddling with everything from solar-powered cars to space elevators. In Bunch of Amateurs, Jack Hitt visits a number of different garages and has written a fascinating book that looks at America’s current batch of amateurs and their pursuits. Beginning with Ben Franklin’s kite and leading all the way to the current TV hit American Idol, Hitt argues that the nation’s love of self-invented obsessives has always driven the country to rediscover the true heart of the American dream.

    Story

    The stories of amateurs are great, but there aren't quite enough of them. Jack Hitt is exuberant and a little too much in love with his own voice, so he digresses a lot. A couple of his amateurs are professionals who got there by unusual routes. But that's part of the story as well.
