The book is filled with interesting stories of people who invented products on their own, without the help of government. All of these stories go to great lengths to refute Obama's claim that "If you've got a business—you didn't build that. Somebody else made that happen." I found the book to be fun to read, interesting, and educational. For that, it was well worth the time I spent on the book.
The book's introduction and conclusion frames these stories around Obama's "you didn't invent that" speech, but the book is not a diatribe against Obama (as some reviewers here think it is, or wish it should have been.) If that's what you want, there are many other books on the subject. If, however, you want to read inspiring stories of Americans (some immigrants, some born American) who changed the world through their genius, insight and hard work, then this is a must-read.
