SUMMARY

Inventors, who develop new things with commercial value, and entrepreneurs, who develop new ways to sell things with commercial value, are kindred spirits. In fact, the two go hand in hand, because without the one it would be difficult for the other to exist. Thus it can be said that both inventors and entrepreneurs are business visionaries since both are interested in transforming ideas into money. American Inventors, Entrepreneurs, and Business Visionaries includes the range of people from early inventors who were also entrepreneurs like Thomas Edison up to people today like Bill Gates, as well as the robber barons and their counterparts from other times. This A to Z biographical dictionary contains 260 entries on important Americans from colonial times to the present. Each entry begins with a short description of the person's importance, then the entry provides the person's birth date and information, and proceeds chronologically though his/her life. Suggestions for further reading follow each entry. There is a topical introduction to the book, a bibliography at the end of the book, two subject indexes, and a general index.Carey, Charles W. is the author of 'American Inventors, Entrepreneurs, and Business Visionaries' with ISBN 9780816045594 and ISBN 0816045593.
