About the Author
From August 1999 to January 2001, veteran journalist Steve Kemper was the only outsider to have exclusive behind-the-scenes access to Dean Kamen and his team of engineers at DEKA. His work has appeared in Smithsonian, National Geographic, and other magazines. This is his first book.
Top Customer Reviews
In tiny tiny print on the cover is "Previously published as Code Name Ginger", buyer beware if you have read this book, exact same book different name, different cover and nowhere in the descriptions other than in small print on the cover (if you open large cover page and scroll down you see it in small print). It is not listed in the description or any where else on the page.
Amazon did go good and credited me (buy a lot of books) but buyer beware.
Steve Kemper is a gifted writer, and I look forward to his upcoming book about Frederick Russell Burnham, "the great American scout."
